6years ago I had an amazing tuna steak here, hoping for the same experience my husband and I had dinner there again. Happy to say the experience was even better than I remembered. Very personal fine dinning experience, the chef goes out of his way to give customers value for their money and a happy palate. This is something you can not miss out on. I will return to Scotburgh just to come and dine here again. Keep up the great service and excellent standards.

Went here with a friend for the recommended tuna steak. As to the current sea conditions there was no fresh tuna available, the owner did everything in his power and served us amazing ribeye steaks instead of something frozen. Great service and and all around entertaining evening. the highlight was the homemade apple crumble with some French calvados! will definitely recommend.

This inconspicuous restaurant served delicious food served by the very friendly chefs. The tuna steak was super and the chicken and prawn curry was way too much for even my hungry husband to finish. A shared garlic loaf starter was dripping in delicious butter and just enough to whet the appetite..

We visited C Breeze Restuarant in January 2020 the night before we returned back home after our December camping holiday. We had the best food ever and it finished off our holiday perfectly. We returned to the coast for a 4 day break during the school holidays in october 2020 and choose the C breeze once again to finish off our short break. A party of 10 family members, chose 10 different dishes from the menu, and each and everyone raved about their food. What a awesome experience once again. Will definately return with our next visit. What a way to finish off a great break.

Came down to the coast for a quick weekend get away, and we we're driving down to the beach and decided to stop here for a quick drink while we waited for the midday sun to cool down. Ended up having lunch on Friday, dinner on Saturday and again lunch on Sunday. The food is by unique, well prepared and the attention to detail is astonishing. We even had the most wonderful experience where Julien showed us how he prepares the tuna fillets - an experience money can't buy. Will definitely be visiting here every time we are remotely close to it!

The best king clip I have ever eaten in my 50 years on this planet. My husband and I went here for our 25th wedding anniversary and Julian the owner made us feel so special and his food was genuinely the best we have tasted. My husband went to France and had mussels there and says hands down Julians food tops the French’s food - in fact internationally the best cuisine we have eaten. If there were more than 5 stars to give they would all go to C Breeze ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was recently on holiday and went to C-Breeze for a late lunch, we had been there before on the last day of our holiday and decided this year to get there early. We decided to try the seared Tuna dish, it simply is the most unreal experience, cooked to perfection with a wasabi mayo and honey soy dressing. Then due to the shutdown announced due to the Coronavirus on monday the 23rd March, we decided to head to C-Breeze one last time before heading home. The restaurant was empty, but Julian the owner made us feel like we were truly welcome. We ordered the tuna again, and dare i say it , was even better than the day before :) The guys at the restaurant were packing up and carting stock and alcohol off for storage and you realize what this virus will do to small enterprising businesses such as C-Breeze. For what its worth I rate this awesome family run restaurant in the top 3 i have ever had the privilege of eating at. And when i return and they have survived the shutdown i will enjoy many more meals it this place. Its simply incredible.

Its not easy to find a restaurant that serves kingklip that is not overcooked. The chef at this restaurant knows how to prepare and serve fish! Highly recommend. Spicing was just right. This was a family visit and every person thoroughly enjoyed their food - burgers, prawns, duck, fish. Thanks Chef Julien, see you next time.

Absolutely brilliant spot. C-Breeze are so accommodating to skate boarders (local and afar) with incredible food. You have to try the speciality Tanqueray & Dry Lemon with fresh pineapple ice cubes! Delicious Al denté pasta prepared by Julien and his friendly staff...a perfect blend of French cuisine into South African taste buds.

Saw good reviews and my wife and I had a late lunch there inside on a windy day. The mussel pot was recommended and my wife enjoyed it - an unusual choice for her. I had a massive burger which was really tasty. Good service and personal touch of the chef on a quiet day was appreciated.

Stopped at C Breeze restaurant for dinner, after a days outing on the South Coast of KZN. WOW! What a pleasant surprise 😁. The food was devine! We are a family of four and every one of us agreed that our meal was one of, if not the best tasting meal we have ever had. We ate: Prawn cocktail Chicken cordon blue 300g prawns Mini seafood combo Each dish was delicious, good potion size and value for money. It really goes to show, what a difference an owner-chef makes. Thank you Julian and your team. We will be regulars from now on, when we are in Scottburgh.

Julienne the owner pays attention to detail. Makes the best grilled tuna sashimi. His angel fish grilled is also excellent when in season. He cooks what the catch of the day is so the foos is always very fresh.

We heard that fresh kingklip had just arrived so gave it a try. Wow! Delicious, mouth-watering plate of food. Julien is a French chef who makes everything from scratch, based on the fresh ingredients he is able to source. The chilli and coriander sauce was out of this world! We even bought a jar to take back home. Highly recommend this restaurant.

My friend took me her favorite restaurants here in Scottburgh and we had a really good time. After the busy festive season we enjoyed the mussel pot with fresh french bread. The seared tuna with veggies and as dessert my friend had creme brulee and I had the crepe Suzette. Jummie in one word. We will be back!

Excellent food with a great host/chef/owner! It’s not everyday that the owner/chef engages with his guests. It was a really remarkable touch which added to the occasion. I had the kingklip which was paired with a very unique sauce! Definitely a must. Everyone around the table thoroughly enjoyed their food which included the seafood platter and steak. Will definitely be frequenting this establishment.
