The best outlook in Ballito but have found the food disappointing! They're always offering extremely complicated specials which are more often than not disappointing. However, their pizza's compare with anywhere in the area so a pizza and a nice bottle of wine overlooking the breakers is sensational. Highly recommended.

Awesome chilled atmosphere with a calming view of the ocean. Great service, the owner makes you feel welcome. The complimentary bread is divine and all the dishes I have tried have been very good.... And i have tried many as we keep on coming back for the great food.

We have frequently enjoyed a great walk along the Ballito boardwalk and have often wondered about this restaurant when passing by, on foot. On our recent trip to Ballito, we stopped off for a drink, on our way back and sat outside on the terrace sipping cocktails which were reasonably priced and very good. We ordered some starter portions of... More

Well situated on the beach with a panoramic view of the sea. Neat and clean and good service.Touch of elegance and comfortable.Tasty food is well worth the price. Had a cajun chicken and prawn dish with rice and vegies in a creamy periperi sauce. fabulous flavour.
