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.More

I had a terrible experience at The Greek. I sent a private message to the restaurant after and the owner replied very rude using foul language that I cannot write here. I will never and can never recommend anyone to go there. The food was...not special, over priced and the wine not well kept. After this horrific and terrible experience at The Greek JeffreysBay rather go somewhere else. Its simply not worth the risk of a bad night out.More

Some of the menu prices will shock you (like the baklava), but the pizzas and steaks are great. The wine selection is also decent.

After reading reviews I did expect really good food. I was however disappointed as the food was average and extremely pricey. The service is good.

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.More

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.More

We shared a seafood platter for 2, it was big enough for 3 people. Tzatziki and focaccia starters were good also. Large wine selection, choose from colour coded shelves.

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.More

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
