The best "Mossel Pot" ever. I really like the delicate touch of garlic in the mossel pot. The balance is perfect. The flexibility of service is excellent. I can ask for what I want and I can get it. I don't have to choose. If...More

We eat here when it is raining or the weather is a little cold - but still good in fine weather. Food is lovely, views are good right out across Jeffreys Bay. Good value for money and great hosts.

The food was excellent and so was the service. The restaurant has a great view over the beach and we were lucky enough to spot dolpins while enjoying some seafood. I recommend the combinations on the menu!

We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is double story with the restaurant being on the first story. It has three parts to the restaurant. The fine dining inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dining, where you have a front and centre view of Jeffreys Bays breath taking ocean. Lastly we have the semi-undercover outside section. Where you can get that authentic ocean breeze air and soak up the sun or feel like you under the star while seeing the moon reflect over the water of the wild ocean.
