Typical example of owner no longer interested in their business. Chips were greasy, fish undercooked ... and pricey. Only people in the restaurant during high-season - says it all right!?! Used to be our best place for seared tuna & stir fried Asian vegetables ... now not even good enough for just "plain ol' Fish &a Chips".

Looked forward to eat at this restaurant but was we were hugely disappointed. The mussel dish was bland without any taste and the cheese platter for two was very small,suitable for one person only and hugely overpriced.

I ordered a sushi take away at the restaurant but I was extremely disappointed in the preparation, taste of the food and the price as well.

Such a stunning place. A perfect setting. Welcoming hosts. The next time I am in South Africa, we will be returning for a longer stay - highly recommend this Lodge.

On arrival, the employees were chilling outside the store and only came inside after we had waited a while. Unprofessional Service We order hake and chips, R60, definitely not worth it for the portion size. Worst of all the chips had an odour resembling that of petrol or diesel and were hard as hell. We went back to return the... More

For starters we ordered the crab samoosas. We read a very good review about them but was a bit dissapointed. Dry and nothing to rave about. For mains we ordered two fish, calamari and chip combo's. The mains were delicious and the services was fast. The portions were big and value for money. It was a hot day and our... More

All we wanted was fish and chips to eat on the beach. Service was unfriendly kitchen had flies sitting on open batter containers. Should have left but stupidly ordered. Worst fish ever, part was raw, the rest "pap" and floury. Chips chewy and tasteless. Total waste of money will never recommend.
