The restaurant seemed to be always busy, especially local people which is always a good sign. Food was well cooked, nicely presented and served piping hot. Staff were very friendly, prices very reasonable and parking was good.

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.

We’ve been travelling for a few weeks in South Africa and this was one of the best restaurants we’ve eaten at. There was such a range of food it made it difficult to choose. But would highly recommend the seafood platter to share (either as a starter or a main) as it was delicious, with the special sauce that the prawns and mussels come in bring absolutely delicious. All the other food we had was fantastic and would highly recommend as very good value for money.

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.

Hi David Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for recognizing that THE GREEK is a world class restaurant with patrons returning yearly from across the world. Your syntax is confusing and therefore , I will need more information to follow up your complaint. "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 only have one type of prawns on our menu and that is our FAMOUS RED PRAWNS... it is clearly stated on the menu that the prawns are baked in our Secret RED SAUCE. Please let me know who your waitress was, if you can't remember her name a description will do, so we can follow up on your complaint. We take great pride in our customer service and in our food.

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!!!

Excellent Greek authentic food. Bit over-priced for the lamb shank. But over-all very tasty food! The chicken wings waiting period 30 min. Good wine selection. Managaress sprayed sanitizer all the time on her hands but haven't seen waiter sanitize once.

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 prawns

Was a last minute decision but a very good one at that, we were lucky to go early as they were packed by the time we were done.. Also had great service & attention from the waiter & owner. Recommended the prawns & a great recommendation at that, most the meals are more traditional but were delicious Wine selection good & a few graft beers for those who like a little adventure. Highly recommended this place, go with an open mind & taste buds

The Greek Such a buzzing restaurant. Could make out that this is a really popular place. Filled with diners enjoying the food and drink. Seafood was excellent. We enjoyed the prawn, line fish, calamari and squid head. The staff are quick and helpful. The pizzas are baked right in the service area. Nice to watch.

My wife and I had dinner at The Greek. As a kid, I came to JBay quite frequently to camp and now as an adult I got to go have supper at a place thats been part of the Jhay landscape. The layout of the place is surely in line with Greek /Mediterranean cuisine. Yet our seating on the veranda in the back corner is not suitable for all body types - the odd feeling of the person behind adds either to a more authentic or uncomfortable experience. I have add the menu for you to review. I think the food is slightly overpriced yet my line fish and prawns were absolutely delicious. Was it worth the money? Yes! Would I go back… not sure. The chicken wings were probably authentic greek style and not the expected bbq basting. During our meal there was a traditional breaking of plates which adds to the authenticity of the place. I guess an important consideration here is that its a place that truly gives a Greek cuisine experience, and if thats your deal, I’d say go for it! But if its just to have a meal, its a good option among a few others.

We enjoyed a lovely evening with a special friend. The prawns were beautifully cooked in the pizza oven. A delicious tomato sauce and sides of your choice, complimented the prawns. The ice cold white wine completed the picture. Bright, the waiter, gave very good and friendly service, thank you. Put this restaurant on your list when visiting Jeffreys Bay.

In every way this little piece of Greece will leave you satisfied. The staff are superb, the owner, a born entertainer with a wealth of stories and philosophies to entertain and educate you! Then the star of the show is pretty much whatever you order, a visual treat and a sensory overload. Made with love over open coals, you cannot fault any of the dishes! Value for money? Well they say you get what you pay for, at The Greek you get more! All your expectations are satisfied at this little gem in Jeffreys Bay.

I was going to say best seafood in Jbay, but actually it’s the best sea food in South Africa, but actually it’s the best seafood in Africa. But actually it was the best seafood I’ve ever had in the world. The Calamari is unreal, same for the prawns. Portions are massive too. Worth every cent!

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 recommended

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!
