The new Hartenbos location is beautiful, open, airy and right on the ocean! The service was very friendly and professional. We had prawn tails, hake, calamari and chips. Everything was well prepared, crispy and light! We will certainly be returning regularly! They have really upped their game! Well done!

We had lunch at their new spot in Hartenbos. The restaurant was packed and there was a long queue outside of people waiting. (We thankfully missed the queue by minutes and got the last available table inside.) Our waiter was extremely efficient and really looked after us! My wife wanted sushi, we were advised that this would cause us a... More

The service is efficient and friendly. When one dines out alone, that helps! No companion to complain to. I had a sushi platter. The California rolls were a little dry, but definitely the BEST salmon roses I've had in a long time. My waitress Michelle (I think), had the biggest smile and she certainty knows her stuff.

Then you are served 2 of these, maybe to make up for the very small portions. Very small prawns and very chewy calamari!! The food does not correspond with the photo's on the menu. What happened to... More
