We have been to The Lin ks many many times over the years (we come to Port Alfred from the USA about once a years to visit family) and are never disappointed. The manager/owner Carla and wait staff are always ready to greet us with a smile. The food is always superb and the menu quite extensive. Upstairs at the... More

A unique set up with lovely people to serve you. Really good customer care. Good food. Good view of Port Alfred if you choose to lunch from upstairs. A must restaurant to visit and enjoy some of the South African dishes.

Food was good and prices fairly. I ordered the fish and chips. This seems to be a popular place. It was busy but not crazy. Our server was attentive.

Absolutely excellent ! Thank heavens we thought to make a booking! Not a very large restaurant so would recommend making a reservation. Service was exemplary, "stellar service", food was even more outstanding - every mouthful was a great experience. Asked waitron what his rating would be of the one steak dish - forget its name, but was done in a... More

After reading through TA reviews of Port Alfred we decided to try Links since it was very close to our B&B. We are glad we did! We were received very warmly and seated outside on the deck upstairs. The whole venue was worth sitting in to be honest. While not a outstanding view it still has a very good view... More

Food excellent but smoking should be prohibited inside. Great view, very friendly service. Strange that there were ashtrays inside that encouraged people to smoke which we hated. Never less we had a great afternoon.

Had the privilege of visiting this Gem while spending the weekend in Port Alfred. Service fantastic, the vibe is relaxed and the food superb. We had the Babotie spring roll's (Yum) and the French Filet.

I have been here twice the food is very average. The ambiance is ok could do with better cleaning for my standard. And both times it was difficult to spot a waiter when we needed one.

Pleasant surprise to find so many nooks and crannies to eat, means whatever type of night youre looking for they can accommodate, friends and family, romance etc. Was a bit disappointed in the food. Sold out on a few items and what was left available didn't suit so part of my disappointment could have been that. However I didn't expect... More
