We were staying nearby and were recommended to try this restaurant. The décor is beach hut style with a sand floor which was really good fun. The food was excellent with fresh seafood a speciality. We had calamari which was excellent. The service was friendly and the meals were cooked to order. We had a really nice time and would... More

Something to talk about is Tapas at the beach area at Marina Martinique in J Bay..This quaint building with its floor of sea sand is unique and quite an experience... The food is excellent and their speciality is SEAFOOD... and do the pile it on... Really good food and man sized helpings...An experience not to forget

we have been here on many occasions but the place has sadly deteriorated.... from the food to the staff... seems like a very cold atmosphere from how it used to be. Suggested we go there with friends visiting and it was such an embarrassment... the food has lost its flavour and the staff (most of them) have lost their sense... More

Yes, it was a busy time of day and month but the service (or lack thereof) was shocking. We had a couple of different waiters each struggeling to deal with the tables. Was not a great experience.

The venue for the restaurant is extremely unique as the floor inside is sand. It is only a matter of 50 metres from the beach and is situated next to a fairly large sand dune. The decor is different with numerous flags of the world adorning the ceiling and some walls. The dining tables and benches are wooden but are... More

The food was terrible I had grilled calamari. It tasted as though it had been stewed for hours and came in a brown sort of braising sauce. The Sangria we ordered was likewise awful - it tasted like watered down cheap red wine. We booked, our table was not ready and we were forced to stand awkwardly in a busy... More

The restaurant has a very unique feel . Its based 100m from the beach and have put sea sand all over the floor. Service is quite slow but the food is amazing . Overall a great experience . Will be back soon.

Very nice vibe, food only available from 17:30 though. But open from 11:30 for drinks. Staff very friendly and make you feel welcome. Fair pricing and beach vibe with beach sand in the restaurant.

This location clearly has an attraction, however the service and quality of food was extremely dissapointing. There are notices to let you know that food takes a hour + and that it will be worth your while, this however is far from reality. The food was dissapointing. Ordered food never arrived even asking for it on two occasions. Extra items... More
