Well situated on the beach with a panoramic view of the sea. Neat and clean and good service.Touch of elegance and comfortable.Tasty food is well worth the price. Had a cajun chicken and prawn dish with rice and vegies in a creamy periperi sauce. fabulous flavour.

Kind hosts, good service, nice food and great view. Our seafood platter was the moet expensive we've paid since in SA but the kind service and holiday vibes made up for that.

Thanks for the write up. Our Mediterranean Platter has the best seafood I can buy , Thats why it may be a bit more than you usually pay. Quality over quantity is the way I like to run my restaurant. thanks Trevor. More

On holiday in Zimbali. Decided to try a seafood restaurant with a sea view. This place was well located. Easy to find. We ordered a seafood platter to share. Food was good. Loved staring at the sea, whilst enjoying a great meal.
