We made a reservation. We were seated inside. Waiter arrived and we asked if we could sit outside. It was very busy but she made a plan for us to sit outside we were seated at a lounging spot which was lovely outside until a table became available. The food was really good. We had fish cakes R80 and squid R70 for starters. Main course we had linefish of the day which was cardinal fish and it was amazing R145 reasonably priced . Dessert was creme brulè. The dessert was served beautifully but the sugar did not crack but tasty non the less and served with a sugar weave type basket on the top.
We had drinks, my husband drink which was a a double ciroc gin with ginger ale was R118 which is very expensive for gin, I had a strawberry daiquiri R70. The staff were great always checking up but not like in your face. We will definitely go back.

Lovely setting. Cardinal fish dish was of high rank.Service by Josie was a delight.Chicken dish needs a lot of work,was more cordon bland and far below cordon bleu standard just chicken with bacon stuffed in.Perhaps leave out chicken dishes from menu if not confidant.

We've had one brilliant meal, one OK meal, and some nice sundown drinks here. For the price I would expect more consistently good food. Also, sometimes the staff don't seem to be too clear on what the details of the food they are serving is. I was told my prawns came in a white sauce, but it came in a sort of reduction. It was nice, but not what I thought I had ordered. The waitress was nice, and could have just been an off day. Not too sure we will rush back, but will likely give it another shot at some point, as our first meal there was amazing,

Position is really great and restaurant always busy, however the food is pretty average and service not that great. The last time I was there I ended up at casualties from just four mussels I ate fromm friends plate, but must admit she did not get sick only me. Frist time I got sick eating mussels. Cannot say for sure it is the restaurants fault.
