Our group of five adults met here for lunch. One drives or walks up the rather steep driveway and finds a lovely view of the beach which one enjoys while dining. The service was flawless and friendly, our meals were superb (prawn curry for me) and the wine list completely adequate. While the view is priceless, the cost of the... More

Arrived early to enjoy the early evening. Accompanied by our 4 year old - they served her quickly and she loved her grilled fish and chips.

If you get Slee to look after your table I will put money on you enjoying the outing! The menu and wine list is full of interesting option - feels like off the beaten track but it us easily reachable from Umhlanga and Ballito...but away from the crowds! Recommended!

Food is always excellent but can be rather rich. Avo and grilled calamari starter a winner. Prawn curry good but with only 6 queen prawns expensive at R146. Fishermans bake tasty but too much cream in the sauce.

This restaurant never fails to impress. We had another great meal with exceptionally creative dishes. The service was friendly and attentive, even a new trainee waiter was incredibly helpful and charming. The hosts Linda and Russel are very hands on and show a huge amount of passion for their business and making all of their customers happy.

Was there on Women's Day 9/8/2016 - the service was horrific. They were under staffed and no manager on site. Worst experience ever. They did not even apologize and we were not the only table that was unhappy. every one just about had enough that day.
