Pleasant atmosphere, good service and great food. The menu allows many personal options, and I could make up my own combination of different seafood, starch and vegetables.

Description
We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is triple story with the restaurant being on the 2nd story. It has 3 parts to the restaurant. The very fine dinning inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dinning, where you have a front and centre view of Jeffreys Bays breath taking ocean. Lastly we have the semi-undercover outside section. Where you can get that authentic ocean breeze air and soak up the sun or feel like you under the star while seeing the moon reflect over the water of the wild ocean.
