We had dinner down at the harbour in Port Elizabeth. The restaurant does not look like much but the food and especially the fish dishes are lovely and well priced.

The surrounding areas was average but the food made up for it. I ordered a mussels starter and fillet steak with calamari. Mussells were delicious and fresh but the biggest well done was that the steak was perfectly cooked at the right Temperature.

Apart from its great location this restaurant has slow service and not impressive food. It needs a total revamp....it has lots of potential. I am certain that it has seen better days. Very disappointed.

Been here twice now, great view & location. Service slow, food quality poor. What a pity because it has so much potential to be a fantastic fresh seafood restaurant.

This is a really great place to visit if you would like to have some fish. Make a reservation because this place is always busy. There is a great relaxed atmosphere here with great views of the harbor.
