Had a pleasant meal here. Would recommend to visit. Just make sure it's not too busy though as getting served took a while.

The staff of this cozy restaurant makes you feel welcome and at home as you enter. Lovely menu with interesting flavour combinations. Fresh melt-in-your mouth fish! Start with the calamari - so soft (like butter!) and tasty!!! I had the kingklip with malay sauce -...More

One of the best meals we had in South Africa! Simple, fresh fish just grilled with salt and lemon. The best fish soup I’ve ever had. Definitely worth a visit!

When staying 6 days in CPT we went there twice and enjoyed and loved the fish. Jane provided is with explanations as we Europeans were quite ignorant regarding local fish. Her recommendations were spot on. Certainly a place to come back

Exceptional food and wine and a very good price. Was recommended to us by friends and it did not disappoint. Only ate there one in order to experience other eateries, and to be honest I wish I had gone back there multiple times.

We loved this place so much we went back twice. The food was exceptional, particularly the fish and the owner is a wonderful host. She even re-opened the kitchen for us on our first late lunch visit. It’s a real neighbourhood gem.

Enjoyed our dinner at this casual seafood local restaurant. Great food and good portions but a little pricier than expected. Service was very good and menu was varied. Daily specials also available.

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
