Nicely located with a swimming pool, however the quality of the food is medium and the service is poor. After all, this is a restaurant.

Relaxed, holiday atmosphere. Our food didn't take long at all but people who had visited a couple of days prior to us said the service was slow. The platters are good value and the calamari absolutely delicious!

Nice and relaxed spot for families - food really good. Service a little slow and if corrected would make Joefish a must. Pool for kids as well.

We had a yummy meal at a decent price next to the pool. Great for families with kids. Real holiday vibe.

Worst service in SA. We had family staying in this resort, they waited over 2 hours for dinner service. We joined them for breakfast on 2 occasions and service is the worst I've ever experienced. Waiters / waitresses don't give a dam, managers are worse. Absolutely pathetic, food is average at best and certainly not worth the wait.

Terrible, the reservation we made at when arriving at the place was not effected. After a table was arranged we sat for 20 minutes in the empty restaurant (7. 00 PM) without being presented with a menu. When we finally could order we had to stop the waitress or else we wouldn't have got anything to drink. The food tasted... More

Limited menu, difficulty in contacting chef to ask which dishes have msg (most do) I think the waitress forgot our order. Husband's fish was good, my calamari was delicious, appetizer of mussels delicious but very small, wine list expensive

Ordered 2 toasted cheese for my kids, on plain white bread. When the order came the cheese was processed cheese and the bill was R60!!! When asking the waitress how is it possible for kids toasties to be this expensive she was half irritated and said she'll bring some chips. She bought one small hand full of chips for them... More
