A lovely pizza menu together with mediterranean style cuisine offered a la carte. Lovely decor. The view of the ocean is spectacular from the balcony. Cocktail bar offers very good cocktails! Expertly done with quality ingredients.

Located next to the Garden Court East London, it was very convenient. It seemed very popular with locals and was very busy on the Friday night. My steak was very good and grilled as per my request

My son took us to eat at Cafe Neo. We were seated in a 'cubicle' which as very comfortable. The food was very tasty and cooked to perfection and would certainly return.

I think this is a spot that heats up later around cocktail hour... but it is also a good option for a grilled meaty lunch. I had a great steak, and my lunch mates enjoyed other samplings from the menu.

Popped in this morning for their buffet breakfast. For R89, which consists of cold meats with cheese, eggs, bacon, pork & beef sausages, fried tomato, mushrooms, baked beans, hash browns & coffee /tea as well, it's a filling, tasty way to start the day - whilst overlooking EL gorgeous beachfront.

Tough to enjoy your food the night before you're going to torture your body but we did. Good light calamari and rice was enjoyed with a light beer. All had good meals. Service was good on an extremely busy night. Steaks were good. Pizza excellent. Always our go to place for ironman dinner

Visited during Ironman weekend and was geared for the influx of visitors to EL. The staff are friendly and the food was great. We visited them twice over the weekend. Great cappuccinos!

Went here for dinner. Service was very slow, although manager did inform us of that as it was a full restaurant. The calamari rings were not fresh, however the milkshake was decent. Rest of our party enjoyed their food.

Thank justingI1664UA
