We had almost all our lunch meals at Casbah - under the tree shadow, between dives in the warm Indic Ocean... Just like Paradise!

Great food and ambiance, but they have dogs that continuously bug you when you are eating and they want to be fed. Setting was great. Its a hidden gem...but it was worth it.

Definitely worth stopping here for a drink, as it really is the only spot right on the beach - and the decor and ambience can't be beat! We had dinner though, and I wasn't that impressed with our meal (prawns) and found it pretty overpriced for what you get. The rissois was pretty sad as a starter as well, which... More

A charming beachside restaurant - delicious seafood, sweet service and lovely views. I walked over to the place with a a few girlfriends, and after the amazing meal, the staff very kindly negotiated fares and booked a tuk-tuk ride back to our hotel. If you're South African, they accept Rands, which came in handy....

One of our group never got her food and then the staff rushed it with the result that her ribs were awful. In genereal no one in our group was very happy with their food ranging from seafood platters, chicken, fish and ribs. Also the drinks are very expensive in comparison to other places. However the location is quite nice.

With all due respect. The ribs are never awful which leads me to doubt the integrity of your other comments. More
