The title says it all, location location location
Food secondary and it really is, pizza safest bet. Beer is beer so that OK.
Place is grubby, a quick wipe with a damp cloth would work wonders on the condiments.
Staff pleasant enough.
Been going to Guidos for years and it hasn't changed much, on a nice day with a westerly or even better no wind great place to sit and watch the sea / river having a cold beer. Don't go for the food or to sit inside both of which are well below average.

We were driving around Port Alfred and came to the furthest most end of the road, on a very impressive beach. There was Guidos…which is not the name of a place you would expect to find in South Africa.
We walked through the rather dark restaurant, in serious need of a cleaning and upgrade...and ended up on a wonderful deck outside.
We sat outside on a deck overlooking the end of the canal. Lovely setting. The surf was pounding onto a rock wall at the end of the dock.
Service here was ok…although food took a long time to arrive. However the menu did say that if ordering pizza from their wood fired oven…it would take some time.
My husband had calamari…which he very much enjoyed, although the calamari would have benefitted from just one more minute of cooking. It was served with a squash mash, an creamed spinach (kale) mash, and a corn mash…no texture in any of the sides. He said it was like eating baby food. Best part of his meal was the chocolate milkshake…the best he has had in South Africa.
I held out for the delux meat pizza…with chicken, beef, mushrooms and caramelized onions. It was delicious…although my husband had finished his meal by the time mine came…timing people. The pizza was very generous in size and toppings and cheese…Nice thin, not greasy crust. Worth the wait.

Pizzas are thick and cardboard tasting. Tables dirty, staff seem disinterested. While the location is lovely - rather go there for a drink as there are much nicer places to eat in Port Alfred.

Fantastic joint for a fines meeting, although be sure to only request beer and be prepared to have to change types during the proceedings as they generally run out.
The pizza's are fantastic, nothing gourmet, but then again who wants to eat some parma ham, camembert rocket pizza when you are craving some good old greasy cheese laden pizza, fantastic.
As far as pub food goes, Guidos has never failed to deliver in the 10 years that we have been going there.
