I strongly recommend you avoid this restaurant during COVID. While I was waiting for my take-away order (40 min for 3 pizzas) I observed one of the waiters adjust his mask 6 times: in between he touched the computer order screen 4 times, dealt with...two customers, swiped two credit cards and packaged two orders. Not once did he sanitise his hands in between. I mentioned it to him and although he then sanitized his hands they all thought my request was a joke.More

Thought we would celebrate total Lockdown for Covid 19 by having lunch at a local well loved restaurant . Service was the begging type ! PLEASE serve US! DO NOT order the Pork belly special. If the virus is as tough as this dish we...are in big trouble. In contrast the deboned Peri , Peri chicken was delicious. Be safe and do not order the Pork Belly . It might be there in three week when the lockdown endsMore

Great breakfast. Did not expect such good quality food and decent portion sizes. We had western omelets, french toast and a mini breakfast. All dishes were excellent. Coffee was ok, other drinks were beter. Well worth it. Patio can be noisy with all the motor...bikes.More

Visited almost yearly during the March-April season for the last couple of years and what a pleasure it has been. Food was consistently good and we were actually looking forward to each visit. The manager was always present. I would recommend all the specials of...the day, whether pork belly or fresh fish or pizza. There is something special for everyone. Great-tasting Italian food and some with a South-African twist.More

This facility is showing visual signs of age and definitely needs to be upgraded. The coffee was ok, not great. Service was ok.

Hi we went here for breakfast with kids, excellent service and food. Good value. Coffee as bit slow but worth waiting for. No great view but good option for breakfast.

The restaurant was wildly understaffed. Granted it was a public holiday however the service was still poor. All the waiters took a long time and after 1 hour of waiting for our food it was freezing cold. We had to ask for our medium eggs...and burritos to be warmed up but our eggs came back hard boiled and the burritos came back burnt. When we complained about the cold food the waiter blamed the chef which was shocking as from last experience I know the waiter should take the blame and apologize however he did not. Really disappointing, unfortunately will not return.More

The best restaurant to go to if you want a good vibe and an even better meal. Best hot chocolate and brownies, would definitely recommend this restaurant to family’s and anyone who wants a good meal with great people.
