Only stopped in for a drink, but ordered their massive and tasty oysters. And I don't even like oysters.

As a family group of 5 we all managed to find a personal favorite on the menu. Portion sizes were ample and quality of the food was absolutely fantastic.

Great service to start and the food was amazing. The Kingklip starter and seafood platter were first class! In fact we went back a couple of days later for the hamburgers which were amazing.
