Great little restaurant, best view and prettiest bay in SA. The food isn’t like many city restaurants but compared to other places on the coast it’s pretty good. Friendly service and very fast. The kids can play in the beach while you eat!

We were very fortunate - not booked - and were given a lovely table for two with views across Horseshoe Bay and the surfing lessons. Salt and pepper squid for one and herb-crumbed King George Whiting for me. Both served with fresh interesting salads and...More

What a spectacular outlook from this intimate restaurant. Literally right on the beach! It was as stunning as any of the beach-side locations we have visited in Italy. We enjoyed a delicious dinner for two, with well priced food and wine, and friendly, helpful staff....More
