Second experience , but first time writing review about it. The first time (last year) the service was very poor and no calamari tubes. Second time (2018)-- We arrived at about 4:20pm and only one other couple sitting inside. We had to ask to be seated outside. We then got menus and ordered a bottle of wine. While waiting for wine we checked through the menu and I asked the waitress about the basket and platter options. She then said unfortunately they don't have calamari and she brought me a hand written piece of paper to show what is in the platters (shocking - doesn't even know the menu). With no calamari available I had to check menu again for alternatives. While doing this I heard a lady inside telling the waitress the kitchen is now closed. Nobody mentioning anything to us! I then waited 5 minutes and called the waitress. I asked her if I heard correctly " is the kitchen closed"? Which she replied yes the lady inside told her just now. I then asked her does she not think it will be appropriate to tell your customers do you still want to order because kitchen is closing. She just said "ek weet nie". This after we discussed the food options with her and she could clearly see we were going to order food. Taphuis not seeing me again- sorry

Went in for a sundowner and a meal. Very attentive waiter, took drinks order and drinks arrived quickly. We were the only table in the place. At 7 pm placed our order, waited, watched a lovely sunset over the harbour. Had another round of drinks. Remember we were basically the only people in the place on a quiet Monday, week after New year. After 8pm, that is over an hour later, we left the place, hungry and needing something to eat.food still not arrived. A basic order of fish and schnitzel..... really over an hour to catch the fish and still cook it. Don't go. These places must realise that service and business go together. They must suffer till they realise that the customer is number one priority.
GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. FELT sorry for the waiter, owner and kitchen staff to blame.

Menu boring, service zero. Unlike the pictures. There is NO crab or Crayfish on menu. Not very happy.
