We can highly recommend The Girl‘s to go out for a good dinner.
The restaurant itself is not that big so that a reservation definitely makes sense. The food is delicious and nicely presented (look at pictures). The service is very polite and super friendly.

We had the steak and the mango seafood. It was good but not something to get too excited about. The service was excellent!

Dear Issebelvisser

Please allow me to respond to your review!!

Our hummus is made fresh every day using .....chickpeas. Must admit we`ve never had it confused with curry before.

Pestos tend to be oily.

Brie would smell like ammonia if it was off and you wouldn`t put it anywhere near your mouth!! But should you have not been put off by the smell and in fact eaten it, you would have got a type of food poisoning called listeria. The time between consumption, ie eating the food, and the appearance of the first symptoms usually takes between 4- 8 weeks after the event?!!......Oops.

Still trying to work out what "thomboli" is, so can`t comment on what your symptoms would have been. Perhaps that had something to do with the matter when you refer to our our waiters not knowing what "they "were talking about. I don`t blame them!

Fascinates me as to why you would have, in your repertoire of reviews, decided to review Saldanha Bay Municipality.

Yours Roxanne
