We went an eightieth birthday party that was catered for in this restaurant. The food was great - the soup - oh the soup - to die for! The pudding was pure death! (Now sitting on my hips :) )

We visit this Restaurant frequently and never had a bad experience. Fred &Nadine are hands on all the time. Their food is excellent and well priced. The view is spectacular. My favourite dishes are: Oxtail, Thai Green Curry Fish on the bone and Tribe. Wow!!...More

We went back again, and again! Three times in one week and no disappointments. Fred’s knowledge of the wines, Nadine’s yummy dishes, their hospitality. I have never tasted such fresh and tender hake.

Description
We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is double story with the restaurant being on the first story. It has three parts to the restaurant. The fine dining inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dining, where you have a front and centre view of Jeffreys Bays breath taking ocean. Lastly we have the semi-undercover outside section. Where you can get that authentic ocean breeze air and soak up the sun or feel like you under the star while seeing the moon reflect over the water of the wild ocean.
