We booked a table and were the only people on the list, yet when we arrived the restaurant was really busy, predominantly with either local South Africans or those that were on holiday for the Heriage Weekend.

The restaurant doesn't have a licence, so make sure you take your own wine. There is no corkage charge and they also provide ice buckets! The menu was great, a combination of predominantly shellfish starters followed by shellfish platters or grilled local fish with chips and salad. What a fantastic combination. My only criticism was that as it got dark it was difficult to see what you were eating!

This is an amazing restaurant and I wish it was round the corner from me, as I'd be there every week!

Very quaint, casual and fun. We were two couples, and we loved the feeling of having a 'picnic on the beach' with the sand, outdoor benches and fires going to keep you warm. Don't let the atmosphere fool you though - the meals are 5 star chef quality! We all tried the seafood bisque which was the best tasting broth loaded with chunks of fish and large prawns served in tin mugs with fresh bread. The main courses were all outstanding as well.

They are not licensed so BYOB. Should you like to have a bottle of wine or beers with your meal, they encourage you to bring your own and they'll gladly open it for you and provide glasses.

We very highly recommend the Freshline Fisheries experience. It could not have been a more perfect evening!

Thank Gisele C

We both had the seafood / fish platter (one breaded & one grilled) and were very impressed. We took our wine and were provided with ice, cooler and glasses even though we were not charged corkage which is a nice touch.

Fish is their speciality and they know how to do it properly. Great atmosphere and service. Ask for the daily speciality. They also do wonderful takeaways.

You would never know how amazing the food is at this secret place tucked in between the boat yard and old railroad tracks. We would never have tried it except for a recommendation and we were so glad we did! The fish dishes were amazing, great staff, very attentive and everything...from the tea to the meal was spot on. You can even buy and bring in your own alcohol so we went and grabbed a bottle of wine-so nice vs. paying more than double for a bottle. LOVE this place and will be taking our friends back with us next time!
