An excellent family owned (although quite large) restaurant which specialises in prawns and seafood. We enjoyed a variety of different size prawns, cooked in several styles. It was all super tasty and the big prawns were amazing. Service attentive (but a little officious) and nice...More

A must when in Umhlanga for the best king prawns. It is one of the older restaurants in Umhlanga but the food is really great. Worth a try.

One of our favourite places to have prawns. We opted for the kilo of queen prawns which we shared and once again they were beautifully cooked. Finished the meal with a Dom Pedro each - great to be back.

Very poor performance by a restaurant that calls itself a seafood restaurant. We were heavily disappointed. Unless you...More
