Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is double story with the restaurant being on the first story. It has three parts to the restaurant. The fine dining inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dining, where you have a front and centre view of Jeffreys Bays breath taking ocean. Lastly we have the semi-undercover outside section. Where you can get that authentic ocean breeze air and soak up the sun or feel like you under the star while seeing the moon reflect over the water of the wild ocean.

Two of my pensioner friends and I had a super meal at your restaurant on Sunday.
Unfortunately the attitude of our waiter left us with a bad taste in our mouths.
Our meal came to R570 total. For convenience sake we added a R30 tip to make it easier to divide the bill and we each contributed R200.
His attitude was to walk away shaking his head and disppearing into the kitchen. As per normal, one's waiter normally sees you out (if possible) with a smile and a thank you. This gentleman needs some lessons in courtesy.
Other than that, it was a thoroughly pleasant experience.

I drove from PE for a Saturday late lunch with a friend in celebration of my birthday. Raydene served us and made the whole thing an entire experience, we loved everything. This is certainly one of the best restaurants in the area. Thank you for a memorable experience.
