We have stopped in Gansbaai or 9 nights and this restaurant has been recommended heavily and it is right to do so. Nice menue, good wines, excellent service, extremely good food, freshly prepaired. For us, by far the best restaurant in Gansbaai.

Warm welcome, great wine and homey fireplace. Service with a smile...but the STEAK will make you go back for more. Drooling just thinking about it! Perfect for a romantic evening of course. ☺

We were 10 guests, 2 families. The restaurant's food was very average. The cream mussels were not good at all. The spare ribs and lamb shank were the best dishes we ordered. The service was average.

The food here is fantastic. We had prawns to start which were beautifully tender. Our fillet steaks were very good and melted in the mouth! Highly recommended!
