Great! Service was friendly and helpful. The food took a while but the waitress told us the kitchen had a big order for takeaway so we were forewarned and happy to wait. Coffee was french press and very good. Chicken wings were amazingly good. Pasta...was good and had lots of prawns.More

We stopped at the waterfront for lunch, and it was great. The food was freshly prepared and very tasty, the hostess & server staff very helpful & friendly, and the drinks menu great. The Sangria is great on a hot day, and there was a...gin & dey lemon & pineapple drink on the menu which was absolutely fantastic. Don’t be in a hurry, not that the food takes that long, but it’s not fast food and the reward is in the taste.More

The Waterfront has outside seeting with a great View of the rivier. All our food was absolutely delicious but we waited more than a hour for our two dishes to arrive.

We had crayfish and fish at this great little restaurant set right on the river. They serve very fresh food and are fast and efficient out of season. The location is absolutely perfect for a holiday in Port St Johns.

Relaxed environment with good ambiance and music. The staff are very friendly and the food well priced. The food can take some time but worth waiting for.
