Go for the view, we did not really enjoy the food. The soup was the nicest dish we had and was there at lunch, seemed popular for business meetings however definitely better restaurants nearby.

Good restaurant, perfect seafood. The best oysters ever. Fine atmosphere, only the bubbly was not cooled. But the people were nice and friendly. And a wonderful view.

A varied menu with some African style options. Not in the greatest part of town but the food and attention to detail made up for that. We particularly liked that the owner picked us up and returned us to our accommodation.

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.
