We visited the restaurant for lunch on a Friday in winter. The restaurant was about 30% full, as I suppose you'd expect on a cold day off-season. My companion had 4 oysters to start and peri-peri prawns for her main course; I had the chilli...More

The fish curry was good and came with rice. The crayfish was also prepared tasty and cost was approximately 96/100 grams. Menu is extensive and offers lots of food to select from. Tempura shrimp was ok. Service was excellent and efficient.

Big restaurant at Cape Town Waterfront. Extensive menu. Very disappointing. My East Coast seafood potje had a very unpleasant tasting tomato based sauce. My husband’s steak had to be returned twice to be cooked satisfactorily.
