We enjoy going to Kingfisher’s on Friday nights. There a great atmosphere and the location is just perfect (overlooking the bay). You do need to book though as it gets full very quickly. Fish is always fresh and tastefully prepared. Kingklip, Sole and Hake are our favorites. Their steaks are also really good!

This is not a restaurant that you want to visit in season. Out of season has a completely other vibe. We will never visit in December ever again, as the food is bland, the service non-existent and the place is noisy and loud. We however experienced this restaurant in October this year in the out of season period and everything was perfect. Steven is one of the best waiters ever serving us and the were delicious! Won’t recommend the sushi.

Thanks for your review. Season is indeed extremely busy but no excuse for bland food or poor service. We're happy you enjoyed your second visit and will make sure Steven gets his recognition.

Had quiet a long wait for a table - which was a little irritating as we had booked. But the views are pretty amazing so stood around and waited to be shown to our seats. I understand that it's peak season and as a small coastal village you feel the need to get as much out of one night as possible - but it was unpleasant sitting so near to other tables that you could almost be part of their conversations too.

The food on the other hand was good. From the sushi platters, to seafood platters to dessert we had no complaints. Neither on the service.

Hi Celeste, thanks for your comments. The comfort of our guests is very important to us and to feel squashed as you did is not acceptable. We will have to review the layout of our tables to ensure everyone is comfortable. We are happy you enjoyed the food and service.

We enjoyed the sushi special yesterday....it was super fresh, super delish and super well sized....our waitress however could have been a bit chirpier....the whole staff compliment inside seemed as if they did not want to be there!

Thanks for making the time to give us your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your meal but it seems that we really need to work on the atmosphere. Hopefully you will find a far lighter mood on your return.

We visited Kingfisher on a whim and really enjoyed it! The food was great and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. Our waiter, Steven, was so friendly and gave great service!
