Had a couple of excellent meals here on holiday. Line fish cooked in lovely seasoning, nice combos available e.g. Grilled hake and calamari. 2 mains and 2 draft beers around R300. Great value

Years ago, this place had the bar in the middle of the room and it was a well loved little pub with ugly stuffed fishes and fishing photos stuck on the walls. It then underwent a change of management where the place was opened up and the bar moved to the left side, making it a much bigger place. I... More

Nice range of fish and seafood. Simple, but tasty. We had two kinds of fresh fishes. Chef made fillets from them and they were very well prepared. Salad was served with dressing aside (which is not always a case in South Africa). Excellent draught beer! Everything for reasonable prices. Refreshing experience after so many chain and fast food restaurants based... More

It is the only place in 'town' where you can eat fresh fish instead of frozen fish. I really recomment this place. Be aware of the fishy smell and start with a good beer in the pub.

Unfortunately we did not find the service here very friendly. It first looks like a take-away place, where you can see your food being cooked, however in the back there is a restaurant and pub. The fish is very fresh and the prices are also decent. It took 15 minutes to wait for our food and there aren't any chairs... More

We both had catch of the day which was a good size fair decent fillet, I would only recommend this pub if you are use to frequenting pubs as it's certainly not... More

A must for anyone who loves prawns! Absolutely amazing prawns with good vibe and cold beer!! Fish of the day is fresh and the local skipper has many stories!

The food was OK but it was a bit loud and it was apparently allowed to smoke in there. And the waiter forgot some of our order. Nothing for the non-smoker
