After the new restoration it's a big new and much cleaner place. We waited 45min for 1 breakfast.. I think you might have to look into it. The view is stunning. The noise is unbelievable!!!

This one of the places to visit when in Ballito. Live band availabe, and you actually test your vocals ad well. Sea-facing and they have good service and cocktails. If you want to unwind, that's the way to go

A good place for a cold one and relaxation by the sea. The live music was pretty cool getting most of our requests played. Like a free live jukebox. Thanks for the good time

Restaurant has a fantastic view of the coastline; we saw both dolphins and whales during our visit. The food was reasonable but service wanting. More likely revisit for the view than the food
