Our favourite restaurant of the ones we tried in the Marina area. Nice atmosphere and nice food. Steak was nice but fillet steak in the restaurants we tried in South Africa does not live up to expectations.

Really amazing sushi and great vibe, the waitress was a bit pushy to get our order, within 5min she asked us 3 times to get our order, but in the end good service and fresh sushi.

The restaurant has a nice vibe and is not too pricey. Works out around R150 per person. We had light meals and waited over 40 minutes for the "jan's wings" starter to arrive. The staff is friendly though.

Wow, best seafood I've had in a while. It's a wee bit pricey, but totally worth it. Great service and the manager was really friendly but not too in your face. Lovely views of the lagoon and a great place for sunset cocktails and sushi....More
