The restaurant itself is fair inside the staff are friendly, there didn't seem to be any management supervision available at the time we were there, the food was good but I ordered a bar one milkshake and while I was drinking it there was a strange taste and at the bottom of the glass which I thought was chocolate turned out to be peanuts and I am allergic, we asked the waitron and she was adamant that it was a barone , she went to the kitchen and brought back the wrapper and we showed her the peanuts written on the wrapper and they never warned that it had peanuts in. we asked for the management but no one came and we got no apology, this spoilt the rest of our day.
we were very disappointed as we wanted to relax and have a enjoyable lunch time. I couldn't eat the rest of my food as my mouth was swollen. The staff were not at all concerned about the situation. they will probably do it again. please be aware.

After a Sunday morning run or walk the Mega Cappuccino is great. Their omelettes are also great. Very filling

We're in Port Alfred for three months and have eaten here at least every other day. Gill and Brett run a welcoming and efficient crew and we are always pleased by the quality of the food. Chef Joao recently created a terrific shrimp dish - his mother's recipe, I believe - and we hope to see it as a menu staple.
Unreserved thumbs up - we give the Penny Farthing a score of 100.
