Dear Aletbez, We do apologize that you did not have a great experience. Unfortunately peak season is chaos in Mossel Bay and while we do try our best to ensure we maintain service standards, it is challenging.

Didn't have the best experience. Maybe the restaurant had a bad day but will not recommended this place to friends. The drinks and food took almost an hour just to reach the table, was not impressed at all. The view is nice.

Dear Armand, We do apologize for the less than satisfactory experience you had. Unfortunately it is mid season and the restaurant is rather busy. All of our meals are freshly prepared, so it does take longer than usual at this time of the year.
