Nice food, great staff and good choice on menu. chairs a bit uncomfortable and cheap. Have been to others in this chain of restuarant and this one could definitely be more comfortable.

The seafood here is certainly fresher than at any other ocean basket. Very friendly, intelligent waiters. Lovely view of the harbour, the sea and the mountain.

A few vegetarian options from the side menu options put together for a great meal with a view despite the rain. Well worth the trip from Sea Point to enjoy this end of False Bay.
