Their manager Noleen Jacobson is the rudest lady I have meet in a restaurant! I ordered a grilled yellow tail. They served me the nastiest piece of the fish. When I made a nice comment about it to the manager she screamed at me that this was how yellow tail was (I have yellow tail where I live I told... More

We were on a tour stopped for lunch. The food was simply delicious. The service was super fast (too fast) all courses were on the table within couple of minutes! The fried calamari was delicious. The ostrich was good, first time to try, good taste however not different than beef or veal. The desert was amazing. Forgot its name :)... More

No problem with quite adequate food, service etc....BUT....we were charged a total of 900 rand for three meals and a side order of calamari. Two of us had Kingklip for a charge of..... 500 rand! The rest of the bill was made up of our guide's meal, the calamari side order, two small glasses of wine, water and a coke.... More

It being 1 Januari, we had limited choice of restaurants open and free tables, so we ended at harbor view. A sticky table, dirty glasses, but hey, let's not be difficult. The dim sums were mushy and contained anything but what was on the menu. Up to the main dish. What could go wrong with some grilled fish, we thought.... More

Really disappointed...better think twice going there. The portions are ridiculously small for what they charge. I ordered a Calamari and Prawn combo for R185 and only got 3 prawns?? On the menu they charge R110 for basic "fish and chips" and for take away it is only R55. Am I the only one thinking this is bizarre??!! R26 for an... More

You need to book to get a table with a good view as this is part of the atmosphere! The sea food was good and tasty and the service of the staff excellent. Had a lovely time there!

Chic, friendly and excellent sea food and fish. The staff are super knowledgeable and will give you good advise and take you though the menu and the catch of the day. The restaurant is right on the oceans edge with table looking directly onto the rocks and the sea. If you are lucky you will see a seal or two... More

Cheese platter is huge! enough for two people. Very amenable when one of our party only wanted a side salad and chips. Despite being busy service was friendly and reasonably quick. Wine and food price reasonable. Clean toilets. Outside veranda or indoors.

Good food for sure. Had the coffee shake or something along those lines and was amazing. The hake and prawn combo was equally tasty. Overall nice place with good affordable food.
