The bar is well stocked and staff are helpful, welcoming and friendly. A good relaxed atmosphere. The food is good and generously served; I enjoyed the seafood offers! Opening times are suitable and practical for all staying families/visitors including local patrons. It is a friendly managed bar and Resturant with places for children to play, within a secure gated resort.

Nicely located with a swimming pool, however the quality of the food is medium and the service is poor. After all, this is a restaurant.

Relaxed, holiday atmosphere. Our food didn't take long at all but people who had visited a couple of days prior to us said the service was slow. The platters are good value and the calamari absolutely delicious!

Nice and relaxed spot for families - food really good. Service a little slow and if corrected would make Joefish a must. Pool for kids as well.

Worst service in SA. We had family staying in this resort, they waited over 2 hours for dinner service. We joined them for breakfast on 2 occasions and service is the worst I've ever experienced. Waiters / waitresses don't give a dam, managers are worse. Absolutely pathetic, food is average at best and certainly not worth the wait.
