We arrived at the restaurant just as a storm was starting. Unfortunately we were the only ones in there. Food was good, but the service from the waitress Lynn was great. She made our night....still talking about it now!

This is a good restaurant serving good food but the girl who served us was pushy and not very friendly. Her customer service skills need updating !

We had a very bad experience across the road and decided we will try Ghillies. What a pleasant and spectacular surprise! Wow the service was excellent, the food was excellent and the over all feel was good. We walked away so satisfied. Thank you so much for a great experience at your restaurant. We will return again!

Stopped in for lunch with my family. Front of house was welcoming and we got a seat quickly.

Stopped here after hiking Robberg Bay. Sat outside and had great seafood. Try the seafood basket with different fried seafood items, including Kingclip. Excellent with or without a few beers. Be sure to sit on the terrace and enjoy the view.

Don't order the fish or calamari, the one was like rubber and the other like mash. Ribeye was OK and the pasta palatable. Will recommend it for drinks.

The place looks good, but the food was just average. They do not sell cocktails after 6PM which was very shocking. they also did not have hot chocolate.
