Been eating there for 8 years, and served the best deep fried fish, calamari and fresh grilled fish in the region.....but since new ownership has taken over, everything has changed. Food greasy and tasteless, there is no management like there used to be on the...More

While the decor and vibe is great the meals are average and I think you can find better in the area. Service was slow (waited about 15 minutes for my beer) and the food as mentioned was average. Will I go back. Don't know????

Great location. Very friendly service. The place is mainly seafood but I was happy to find eisbein on the menu and enjoyed it with some veggies. Parking was a bit of a challenge but overall the food was quite tasty.

Exactly what we needed. Fresh fish grilled to perfection for one of us and a very good rump steak. Quaint inside outside dinning. Great value 500R for two mains, sides and a good bottle of local Rose

The sashimi (salmon and tuna) as well as the oysters were excellent. You should also try the hake and chips! The ambiente is very casual.
