We went there twice - after a very good first time, so was the second! A very lively vibe, frequented by young and old, you will be wise to book ahead to avoid disappointment! The steak, the fish plate and pizza and desert we ordered were all very good in quality and most reasonable in price. Wine also not too expensive, staff helpful and professional.

We spent a week in Hibberdene and decided to look for a place with nice food. TripAdvisor showed Jaxx as the #1 option in Port Shepstone so off we went.

Firstly the service is fantastic. Very quick with the drinks and to clear the plates. But without being in your face about it.

We had 2 starters on the specials menu. Brie wrapped in bacon with a fig preserve as well as fried haloumi served with a chutney. Both were fantastic.

Mains the sole was not available but we replaced it with kingklip. It is served with prawns/mussels on top as well as vegetables and mash. Portion size meant we didn't eat the veg and starch. The other dish was saltimboca. It is tagliatelle pasta with mushroom and cream, layer of bacon on top and then fillet medallions on top again, rounded of with the creamy sauce. Very very good indeed.

As the first 2 courses were so good, we couldn't leave without trying the dessert. But it really is a place where you should have only 2 courses!

The tiramisu cake was heavenly and moist. The white and dark chocolate mousse was served with cream in a cup to resemble a cappuccino. Very rich and a nice touch.

Will I be back? Yes, tomorrow before the holiday is over. There are pizza there with our names on them!!

Passing through, while staying at the Spot backpackers, JAXX was the best choice for dinner and breakfast ! Friendly staff and good food. Nice veranda and a bit of a view.
