Great vibe, awesome service. My waiter Imraan was particularly helpful and cordial. My orders arrived promptly and in particular detail was paid when I mentioned in passing I would have my milkshake for dessert. The milkshake was prepped and brought to me exactly as my...main was done. Little details make such a big difference. The venue itself is very clean and is well shaded, the glass barriers do a good job of shielding you from the sea breeze. The milkshake selection is world class (literally a world record holder) and the burgers are devine. My burger was cooked beulautifully. I would have preferred a medium-rare patty but failed to communicate that. The well done patty that arrived was still tender and moist. I would say this is a good dining experience if you're looking for an upmarket burger joint experience.More

Judy our server was fantastic, as was the food. It was our honeymoon and Judy brought out a lovely ice cream dessert for us on the house as a surprise.

Really lovely steaks; in the middle of a minor refit but don’t let that stop you; service also excellent. I can recommend the t bone. Only issue is that it is very meat heavy!

There isn't a "dedicated area" as such. However, we've seen lots of families with kids. They are obviously welcome! Hope that helps!
