A lovely place to pop in and have a great lunch overlooking the water. Nice easy atmosphere. The bathrooms need a bit of attention but it's a small price to pay. There is a fair menu and a drinks menu reasonably priced

Dinner for four and all our fish was overcooked. Vegetables were coated in sugar and far too sweet. There was nothing unique about the meal that would make me want to go back. Unfortunate because we went 18 months ago and enjoyed it.

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.
