Popped in for lunch. The bar is a boat very unusual. We had lunch on the patio. As it was out of season it was very quite. Service was attentive and professional. The food was good. The setting amazing.

This is the ideal location, literally right on the beach. The service is friendly and good. The interior of the bar is made of an old fishing boat and is a must see.

Situated on a beautiful stretch of beach one would conjure up a menu of fresh sea food or, at least an imaginative kitchen but sadly this restaurant simply underlines the desperate plight of the KwaZulu- Natal south coast. The menu hasn't changed in the last...More

The road needs some help and repairs. If you are not staying at the resort, parking is outside and you walk in. Very short walk. Interesting bar with a boat making up the main feature. Good sea views from the restaurant. We enjoy a really...More
