Recommended by our BnB . Justifiably so. Good service, excellent fish at a terrific price. Nice bottle of white wine. So impressed we went back the next night and had starters as well, equally nice.

Sushi is good here but the lack of service unfortunately ruins the experience every time. Waiter is only seen at beginning of evening, you have to run around to get a drink or place sushi order and belt doesn't have much variety. After 1 hour...More

This is a chain restaurant and it feels like it. Grilled hake and chips pass muster but ‘salmon bites” were rubbery and tough and the village salad was mostly onion, cucumber and pepper swimming in dressing. And why do they need to serve the food...More

Very good restaurant for a quick dinner with fish and chips with a cold beer or wine. Little open area with lots of noise, which makes talking to each other a bit difficult. Good choice of other seafood, but we didn't try that.

Being seafood lovers my friend and I had a seafood platter which was amazing. The waiter told us we wouldn’t eat it, but he was wrong! We just didn’t have chips and rice!! The second night we had tuna and that also was great.

Can not compare to the ocean basket in Ballito which we visit regularly. The fish special was dry and seemed like it had freezer burn. Yuck

the food is very nice, the service and people are really friendly and nice the only problem is that you have to be ready to wait even 1 hour to be served... if you are not in a rush it is your place
