THE GREEK is a local gem in Jeffreys Bay, situated near the beach it is the perfect spot for great food and wine. With world travelers, locals, foodies and families visiting THE GREEK daily. Once you have been to THE GREEK you will forever be part of THE GREEK's family. The success of THE GREEK is down to 3 beliefs. 1. We do everything the GREEK way: We only use the best fresh local produce cooked the authentic greek way in clay ovens and open grills. 2. The second belief is, a restaurant is more than just food, it is about good company, good music, good atmosphere, good conversation and becoming food friends. 3. Uncle George's philosophy on life, food, love and everything in between,

No Covid distancing! Restaurant filled to full capacity. Food and service ok BUT food so salty that it is close to unedable. Lamb chops was like biltong - salty and dry. Seems it was reheated. Very dry. Prawn sauce just as salty. Ambiance good but...overcrowding was scary in Covid times.would not go back. Overpriced prawnsMore

Popped in for lunch. Focahia and a feta / chilli dip was great as a starter to share. Ordered the kilo prawns to share. Wow.... It was excellent. Succulent and fresh in the "secret" sauce. You need the bib 😂. Baclava and coffee to round...off a perfect meal. Service was great. Highly recommendedMore

The sign says Best Prawns in Town. It is very true. One of the best sea food restaurants in the country.

Lovely view, and the food was great. The starters were a little pricy, but the lamb chops portion was huge and absolutely delicious. Good thing we shared and were able to save space for the delicious baklava! Definitely a worthwhile treat.

Arrived for lunch... But lady manager wearing no mask or distancing. Once seated all her waiters had no proper mask covering, simply hanging low on their necks faces fully exposed. Spoke to manageress she was very arrogant, told me to wear my own mask!! Will...never bother going back as food was also only mediocre. But arrogant and definitely a COVID Risk Restaurant in Jefferies Bay and that with COVID growth would advise avoiding!!!More

The previous reviewer made this statement, and we are in full agreement. Pity about the misunderstanding... Simply the best lambshank I have ever eaten. It is a restaurant that deserves to be in the no 1 position, due to a very talented team in the...kitchen as well as front of house. Well done!More

This is a restaurant that has the potential to be world class. On the day we went there the restaurant was busy. We ordered prawns which were done in a tomato type sauce. We had not understood this and although on the menu we ordered...the prawns but asked for them to be done with just a garlic butter sauce. Needless to say they arrived in a tomato based sauce. We complained to the waitress who was rude. She ran to the owner who was dismissive to us and outright rude. In today’s day and age one goes to restaurants for fun and enjoyment not to encounter rude owners. There are far better places to eat in Jbay than the Greek.More
