My wife and I traveling S Africa noted this place on Trip Advisor and on list of local restaurants our tour company mentioned. Pleasantly surprised by this local place off the tourist track , in a casual environment, put out off the charts seafood.

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
