Beautiful venue with great views over the bay, especially watching the surfers catching the break. It’s a litte pretentious compared to some of the other places in j-bay, but the food was tasty, service good.

Pleasant atmosphere, good service and great food. The menu allows many personal options, and I could make up my own combination of different seafood, starch and vegetables.

Description
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.
