We ate here last night with another couple whilst in the area on a golfing trip. Having checked out the various option we decide on curry. It was one of the best curry meals that I have had in a long time. The atmosphere was very casual, which was just what we wanted. All in all an excellent night.

Four of us dined on a Tuesday night, which I found out later is Special Schnitzel night! Two had wood fire pizzas, one an Indian curry and one a steak on the stone! Food was quite good and service fair, but had to ask for a water bottle to share! One item that needs improvement I feel are the chairs!... More

We had a lovely family gathering, and ate both pizza for some, and curry for others. Everyone enjoyed their meal, the atmosphere was lively and fun. Not a relaxing dinner, but a lively vibrant vibe. Well worth a visit if this is your thing.

A very busy cafe for dinner, we are very glad we booked in advance. It was packed on a Saturday night and people were getting turned away. The food was fantastic although it took along time to come out because they were so busy, would definitely visit here again.

Great local venue but every T is crossed and I is dotted! The pizza cooked in the woodfire oven was the best I've personally had in SA. Staff are also friendly and happy to help out with requests too. Suggest booking as it is always busy, but that should give you MORE incentive to go here, give it a try... More

Situated across the road from the beach at Encounter Bay great food particularly the Stone Grill. Pizza Curries etc good memu. The Beach House has a great vibe. Happy Hour at 5pm can be lots of fun.

Another great night and feed. Whether it be for a casual drink, feed or to enjoy some live music (when scheduled), if visiting Encounter Bay, be sure to call in - you won't be disappointed.

Extremely pricey pizza with limited flavour. Family ordered curries which had me with food envy. They raved about it. It cost $130 for 3 smallish pizzazs and 2 curries and 1 drink. Quite expensive for what it was.

We had a weekend getaway and ate here both nights! The atmosphere and food is amazing! At first we thought it was a little crowded but once inside we could see why it was so busy! Best experience.
