Tapas restaurant is a perfect spot to relax, enjoy sand on your feet and enjoy a beuatiful seafood meal. The specials and the service are spot on! And the location........right on the beach sand. Love it!
I can't remember feeling as confused about what to write in a review...
The food was AMAZING. My son and I both had the Seafood Hotpot (potjie) which was both incredibly delicious and fantastic value for money. But everyone enjoyed their meals and our waiter...was attentive and engaging.
My only food related criticism was the length of time between first and last plates arriving, something it seems other reviews have mentioned.
But the main reason for reduced stars is the display of the old South African flag and the old SA Police flag. I realise some people think it's a part of their cultural history and there may even be an argument over whether it's display here constitutes art, but you have to be utterly tone deaf not to realise it's a potent symbol of a hurtful past. It's display in a restaurant is quite simply unacceptable. As my (black, adopted) son said: "Why is the apartheid flag here?" Indeed.
We (especially those of us who are white South Africans) have to call this out if we want to have any hope for healing in our country.More
This restaurant was recommended to us by our travel agent and a great recommendation it was. It was a very unique dining experience. The floor was sand and the decor was very neat, there were flags from all over the world hanging from the roof....The restaurant had a fisherman feel with nets and fisherman themed items hanging from the ceiling and walls. We even saw our provincial flag (we are Canadian and they had an Alberta flag up). Some of the flags were signed so I would only assume they were given to the restaurant by tourists visiting. There is a sign on the door warning that serves will be slow as it is fresh food not fast food but I feel like it is more about the experience then the speed of the meal. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and had the calamari to start. The BEST CALAMARI I HAVE EVER TASTED!!! They I had a fish dish and my wife had a steak. Both very large portions and delicious. The restaurant is located just off the beach so there are beautiful views. It is definitely a place I would recommend if you want a unique experience with delicious food.More
No, sorry. Three words.
Never EVER again..
Had been one of the worst experiences of my life. I wanted to try the seafood platter, but by the time my friend and her kids was sorted out, her husband and I have not even began smelling...ours. Orders were completely wrong, taken toe the wrong tables, wrong sides with wrong meals. It was an absolute disaster. Don't know if I want to take the chance again. I was honestly shocked that things can get that bad. And we were the only table!!More
We have an annual tradition to have lunch at this destination during our December holiday in the Tsitsikama. Service were a bit slow buit much better than previous years.
Food was excellent value for money.
The Mini platter at R165 was real good value for...money and our host, Nicolene has been there for years and they seems to have jacked up quite a lot.
See you again in December.More
