The menu has a variety of dishes. I have had vegetarian (spinach and feta spud), seafood (pemba hake) and steak (mushroom and feta) and all were really good. Every time I have been here the restaurant has been busy however we never had to wait long for service. Prices are a bit high, but portions are generous. A great pub... More

Service is good. Meals are very good. Well presented and good value for money. Will definitely recommend to others and will definitely eat there again. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed. Extra care is taken to keep things cool with mist blowers. Décor is interesting.

First night in SA and recommended by guest house and close by. Food pretty good and good value compared to home (UK). Service a bit hit and miss but all in worth a visit

The concept is good but it would seem that they have lost touch with the customers. Prices are to high and it is not justified with the food. Service and friendliness can improve. If you must go go but there are other places offering better value for money

I took my family for a Sunday lunch at Crawdaddy's. They put us right by the play area, which in this case was great for my little one. The food was excellent and portion size was huge. My only complaint is that the area is not closed off so my kid can easily just run off.

Simply a wonderful eatery to visit if you need a restaurant to suit a variety of pallets. This restaurant has an impressive array of fun and meat or vegetarian, Thai or African dishes. You'll find something to eat! More suitable for a dining experience than the location, but quite an attractive venue too.

We just loved the setting (we sat inside because the whole outside was reserved). It was superb with the whole ambiance, high quality food and excellent service. WOW!

Provides excellent pub style food and great seafood but can be a touch on the pricy side. Decent service but gets very busy at luchtime so the wait can be a little longer. Definitely more a friends and family feel than romantic dining.

Thanks for taking time to review us .We have always been a value for money destination restaurant , and try our utmost to maintain this , however with the Rand taking a hammering on our imported seafood and produce it has made it very difficult . Regards Crawdaddys More
