This review is about a lunch in the Seafood Restaurant and not about staying at the hotel and using its principal restaurant.
The lunch can be selected from a table d'hote menu and costs R195 for two courses and R240 for three courses. A la carte is available at a price!
There were four of us and two enjoyed the meal and two did not. The two who did not selected a starter (reasonable) and a main course (rich fish and chips) which was considered to be an absolute rip-off. For the two who did enjoy their food had the seafood linguine as the main course.
The wine list is comprehensive as one would expect for such an establishment but it comes at a heavy price.
Overall, very expensive, not memorable in a good way and never again.
