Pizza was good. Pea and ham soup delicious and good salads. Good variety of options between meat and vegetarian. This is the spot for... More

A lovely restaurant with bar and a relaxing cool lounge for those warm summer days. Food excellent, atmosphere nice and relaxed and the service is the best by the most friendly staff in Greyton. Only downside...owner can maybe use a bit of discretion when addressing her staff in the presence of customers around. Otherwise a lovely place!

We walked pass the entrance, through the restaurant and then went to sit outside. There was no one to greet or to seat. We waited for about 20 minutes before a waiter attended to us. After that we had to walk in everytime to order. For 90 minutes we did not have one waiter. Tables outside was not even cleared... More

Dear Hippo Traveller thank you very much for your review. I am sorry you did not bring this to Management's attention as we always strive for excellent service. If I have a bad attitude waitress I would like to sort it out as we do not accept that. Do you perhaps know which day and I will check the waiter.... More

We arrived with a fairly big group of hungry travellers and were told that the kitchen was two staff members down so there could be a wait. We went about having a drink then we all ordered our meals at the same time. The staff serving were very helpful and efficient and I would have to say that if they... More

Every year when we come to Greyton we decide to give Searle's "another go" and this time, once again, we were really disappointed. From the off, the door says Open and yet no-one comes to open it when you knock. Are you open or closed? Very confusing. We were then eventually shown a menu by a staff member who clearly... More

Thank you for your review. It seems that every year you make a point of complaining but I fail to understand why any of this was not brought to our attention. Normally if there is a issue we are made aware of it and address it immediately. Our hours are Thursday 17h00 till late, Friday 17h00 till late, Saturday 9am... More
