We were there a month ago, but had such a lovely evening. Service amazing, and food was fantastic. I am so not an Oyster lover, but the two I had were devine. Then the Seafood platter was perfect. A lovely evening and would definitely recommend.

We were a party of 10 and unfortunately all the meals were average. Although lots of choices the tastes was average or below. Have eaten here before, and food was great. Hope this was just an off day.

Visited for lunch on Saturday 3 June. Pleasant venue but no atmosphere. Prices reasonable but food very average. Ostrich salad was aweful. Old wilted lettuce and a few slices of cold biltong-like ostrich. Pity because temperature was 33c!!

Beautiful view sitting outside looking at the lagoon, and the calamari I had has made me want to go back ASAP. Every piece was tender, tasty and delicious. Service was friendly the price was spot on. My friend had a yummy veggie dish.

Everything from the food atmosphere and service was impeccable. The Portobello Mushroom starter is divine. Seafood Platter is more than enough for 2 (Serving staff graciously divided our single order onto 2 plates) Our daughter ordered the sirloin steak which was cooked to perfection (she...More
