Stopped by for a late lunch and got a parking space and the best table. Enormous portions, wanted to eat lightly! No gourmet restaurant, mostly fried foods / sarnies / salads and that sort of thing. Very pleasant and great service from Jaqueline.

Five star meal and position. Got to be the best restaurant in Plettenberg Bay. Rib and calamari combo is the perfect meal while my wife said the prawn curry was the best she has ever had. We will be back.

Great place for sundowners and very pleased they had blankets as it was quite chilly! Not fancy and food very average, but does the trick!

Amazing views and fab food - whats not to like! Make sure you don't turn up too hungry as there can be quite a queue - which speaks for itself!

A local hangout back in the day is still a favourite. Delicious food with calamari always cooked to perfection. Beautiful sundowner spot to end a day off.

We really enjoyed our night here. The food was really nice. Very big portions. The drinks were good and the service was very efficient, friendly and good. It's a great spot for sunset and evening dining.

We had such a nice meal here. The restaurant was packed at 6pm! It was full of locals and holiday makers. My husband's Tuna steak was delicious. I had the lamb cutlets. They were so tasty and tender. The menu was varied. Good service and good food.....I can highly recommend this place!

We had lunch here and decide to go back in the evening for dinner. They don't take bookings but said to get there early to see the sun go down and to get a good table. We were lucky enough to get the last table outside overlooking the beach. The atmosphere is great with the sound of the waves crashing... More
