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.

What a great consistent restaurant. Good ambience and view and around the table everyone enjoyed the calamari and the tempura prawns starters. For mains prawn curry highly recommended and the duck sensational. Other dishes wafting past looked great.

This is a gem on the north coast. Top class place. Lovely venue overlooking the sea. Great ambiance and attentive waitress service. Nice variety on the menu. The food did take a while to come but all our meals were well presented and tasty.Will return.

Everything about "Spice" is pure Magic - with the backdrop of the ocean! We were welcomed with complimentary focaccia and spinach soup - a shere delight! Needless to mention the outstanding and friendly service. We appreciated the interaction with the chef and owner which adds value to the total client experience. Our selection of the pasta dish - spicy chicken... More

Truly enjoyed this restaurant. The food was phenomenal! We split the prawn stuffed shrimp and the lamb curry. Both were excellent choices. Our reservation was late so it was dark when we arrived, but they have a lovely patio right on the beach. Definitely recommend if you're ever in the area.
