The Casbah restaurant is attached to the Casacabana beach hotel, and while staying there you get your breakfast served every morning right by the beach. The breakfast has locally made bread, which is really good - we brought some away with us! They serve food...all day, and you can wander in off the beach to have an assortment of drinks and food. The seafood is of course really good, it being sourced fresh, and you can watch the women carry on their heads the huge buckets of fish from the fishing boats as they stride across the beach to the market to sell. The staff are welcoming and accommodating - they got me herbal tea especially for my breakfast. When we first arrived we wanted a snack and had the stuffed crab starter which both of us enjoyed, and I would recommend. The local dishes are really worth a try, and the portions are quite large!! It is a relaxing and friendly place to be, while watching the world go by!More

The food is very good and the margaritas are great. Staff is very helpful and the atmosphere is very laid back. Strongly recommend the king prawns and the calamari rings.

I'm not sure why this place has a 4 star review on Trip advisor. We had a horrible experience, our orders were switched, the owner and manager wouldn't give a damn about servicing us and we spent 1 hour asking for our orders in vain....Such a disgrace.More

Sorry about that. It gets a bit hectic at that time of year.

Good ambience, good service, the cocktails weren't that fantastic but with free wi-fi you can't complain!

Hi TechM. Thanks for review. The Casbah restaurant and The hotel Casa cabana beach are separate listings on TripAdvisor.

Would have loved to try their food as have heard good things! But after waiting almost 2 hours, waiter gone AWOL, then to be told they have run out of chips and can they offer us garlic bread while we wait some more....very disappointed!

Awesome atmosphere right on the beach. Wake up early and view one of the most amazing sun rises you can imagine. The waitrons are polite and friendly and make you feel at home. Food is good and well stocked bar. Saturday dinner special is a...traditional braai on open fire and is always a winner.More

Great location at the beach for a few sundowners in a relaxed atmosphere. A card payment facility would however be helpful, if one would want an after-sundowner too.More

Sorry about that. We actually do have a credit card facility but we are faced with the absurd situation where the powers that be have decreed that it has to be kept in the office and that we have to apply for a separate facility...More

Went to meet friends at Casbah for drinks. It was a great atmosphere and the service was excellent. We were all given a marinated calamari snack on the house that was delicious and a special touch. Great place to put your feet in the sand,...a cold beer and enjoy the amazing view.More

We had afternoon drinks and tapas outside – the view is absolutely stunning. Bathrooms very clean and staff friendly. A very nice view on the kite surfers. And they have the most adorable dogs! Walking distance from Bahia Mar.

Yes they do, connectivity is a problem at times. But they make alternate plan when there's connectivity issues.
