It just so happened that between the 6 of us we ate all the options on the menu.

We had Sikverfish the lamb duo the prawn curry the rib eye steak and a seafood platter for 2.

We did get a rib eye cooked past medium rare but that was immediately rectified without disrupting our meal and without question.

The lamb duo was to die for HIGHLY RECOMENDED

The Rib eye done to perfection on the 2nd call

The line fish Silver was so tasty

The prawn curry i must caution you .. needs you to know this us a beautiful curry but if youba mild curry person this will be too hot fir you. This was super tasty and did mot leave any ljngering burn it was prrfect.

The Seafood platter had crayfish bsby soke silver fish calamari mussels and more

Our tabled enjoyed our food so much we called for the chef. FELIX came out and we gave him a round of applause.

Well done Felix

Had a meal at the Bistro close to the lagoon. There was CHICKEN CURRY written on the blackboard. What arrived on the table was THAI GREEN CURRY - now that is a totally different dish from what was advertised on the blackboard. And on top it it - it was served with rocket - we had to request fresh coriander as that is what is usually served with Thai Green Curry. Kindly sort out your menu!

Ordered a Ribeye steak medium. Delivered a more than wellll done 1 cm thick steak. Asked the waiter to replace it. The next two were still well done, as judged by 2 waiters themselves, who apologetically replaced the steaks. 4th one was perfect, but still 1 cm thick. Generally speaking the waiters were very friendly and keen to assist. Went to chat to the chef and it appeared that the well known chef was absent or replaced since the last visit. Pricing is too high for this quantity/ quality of food.

You arrived angry and got your kicks by intimidating our staff and spoiling other guests experience. Most people would have woken up to embarrassment the next morning. Not you, you decided to share your behaviour with the rest of the world. Shame

Intention was to have a quick drink and on our way, but sitting on the deck, beautiful view and served by waiter Matthew, excellent service, we stayed for +/- 4 hours. We move indoors later due to the cold wind, was so cozy, friendly and warm inside, we did not want to leave. End up having lunch, menu variety was excellent and the portions was value for money. Thanks again Milkwood for great venue, food and Matthew for best service ever.
