This is most definitely a restaurant everyone should visit if they visit the area. From the moment we stepped into this restaurant we felt like royalty. The staff is unbelievably friendly, well trained and professional. This is a culinary experience out of heaven and the food is innovative with interesting options. Everything was beautifully presented. They also offer an excellent wine collection.
The head waiter Henry has been part of the restaurant for 53 years and made us feel so at home. Our waiter Bhekultule was just perfect in every sense and explained everything with so much care and enthusiasm.
The crepe Suzette desert is heavenly and Henry came to our table and explained every step of his Crepé creation. It was a spectacular display and resulted in the best Crepés we ever ate. It was served with honeycomb ice cream and it was equally as delicious.
This was by far the best fine dining we have experienced in our lives. It was classy, tranquil, upmarket and had the perfect ambiance .Bookings are essential.

During our stay at The Oyster Box Hotel (2-6 May) I celebrated my birthday. We made the booking in at the Grill Room in advance via our preference form. We were bestowed with a true five star experience from the moment we arrived at the entrance.

Our waitron, Byron was very friendly and professional and effortlessly took care of us during our dinner. Henry, the Maître ‘d (for 54 years) was a true and gracious gentleman which treated us like royalty and was very helpful with suggestions on the menu.

The menu is extensive and boasts innovative and interesting options. The wine list is extremely impressive and boasts a selection of excellent wines and beverages.

The Hors d’ Oeuvres trolley was served table style from the vintage carousel. Each dish was carefully prepared, well presented and a pure gastronomic delight. My husband had baked Westcoast sole with sundried tomato and feta, duchess potatoes, sauce choron and burnt lime. He declared the dish exquisite. The fillet béarnaise consisted of basil and tomato caprice, simmered peas and turnip, Buerre Noisette and sage jus. It was beautifully presented. The dish was exquisite and the combination of flavours was a match made in heaven. The palate cleanser lollipop was delicious and refreshing.

My husband convinced me the have the Crepé Suzette as desert. Greame came to our table and explained every step of his Crepé creation. It was a spectacular display and resulted in the best Crepés we ever ate. The ice cream and honeycomb it was served with was equally delicious and added crunch to the dessert.

We enjoyed my birthday dinner so much that we booked right there and then for dinner the following evening.

Dinner at the Grill room is not merely a fine dining affair but an exquisite and royal experience.

What a fantastic experience! Having Hendry still carve the Chateaubriand is so special. And Stanley is a real gem - service excellence.
