Great evening with the missus, food was very good for the price. We had tried a few places down this end of cape town but this place was the best, staff were very attentive and manager was very nice. Keep up the good work.

Busy with locals which is always a good sign. Food very good. Service was fast and efficient. Wide choice on menu - fish and steak seem to be most popular. Reasonably priced.

A lovely family evening enhanced by attentive service and delicious meals - well prepared and presented fish dishes and the curry was amazing!

The grilled butterflied prawns were delicious and the service very friendly. The reason I'm giving only 4 stars is because the toilets are in a state that doesn't match the overall tenure of the restaurant.

Returned to our local restaurant one more time but what a disappointment! Refused to serve tap water supposedly because of the water shortage - even although a liquor licence makes this a requirement. Then the owner refused us admission wit our own water in bottles....More
