We had great pizza's here. The service was good and there is a good variety of pizza's - not just the usual selection - on offer. You can also create your own pizza from scratch.

The view is awesome. The restaurant is situated on the west bank of the Kowie River, overlooking the river and East Beach.

What was not so great at the window table was the flies buzzing lazily against the window pane. This is not uncommon, a local told us, and the flies are easy to catch in a napkin. (There are just glass panes, not windows you can open). This unfortunately detracted from the experience.

I reviewed this restaurant in 2014. The service and the food were poor and of a low quality. We are again on holiday in town and I read in the local newspaper that Guido's has new owners and the restaurant has been revamped.

Decided to give it another try. We went at about 16:00 on a Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was quite. No one on the inside and just my family and another table on the outside deck.

The first thing we noticed was how dirty the table was. There were still left over food from the previous patrons. We then decided to move to another table and it was the same.

Waited about five minutes for the waitress. We ordered the drinks and the starters at the same time. It took 21 minutes for the drinks (a bottle of wine, a bottle sparkling water and a milkshake) to arrive.

After 45 minutes I had to go inside and enquire about the starters. The starters eventually arrived after nearly waiting a hour. The starters, prawns, crumbed mushrooms and cheesy garlic snails were OK. There was no or very little garlic in the cheesy garlic source. The owner did offer us a free drink for the delay which we declined.

We decided to leave and requested the bill. There was an error on the bill, we were charged for an item we did not order. We then went for he main course to the Highlander Pub where we had good service and excellent meals.

Guido's is situated in a prime spot in Port Alfred overlooking the river and the river mouth. It is a pity that the previous or current owners do not care about cleanliness or have an understanding of good service! Guido's deserves its 17th place on the TripAdvisor ranking list of restaurants in Port Alfred.

The service is really terrible. Very very very slow. Don't go there is you want to get out again within 2 hours. They know this and warn you on the menu that they are slow.

Fabulous pizzas!!
Delicious Carbonaro pasta.
Friendly manager.
Nice clean bathrooms.
Tables and chairs/booths/benches felt a bit sticky and dirty- perhaps it was the salt air from the sea or just needed a good clean.
Great menu choice. Manager looked after the kids and made sure they were all happy. Great view!! Deck was lovely.

Relaxed vibe, it was pretty quiet when we were here and suffice to say it was nothing spectacular. Drinks weren't served at high speed, although the food was on the table in 15 minutes so that's a big bonus. Surf n turf was average, pizza was awesome.
