Had a great meal again the calamari and prawns are a winner but the rib eye is equally as good so always torn between the two The winner is the craft beer from feather stone and is always a great addition to any meal

Great location just outside of Kenton on Sea on the Grahamstown Road. Great views of the Kariega River, sheltered from the wind. The food is of a high quality at a fair price. Be sure to book.

We had the best and freshest calamari that I've tasted in a long while. Our meal was delicious and I loved sitting under the thatch looking over the Sibuya Game Farm and the Kariega River. Prices were excellent and good value for money.

The "Lemon-Eater" is still at Stanley's. He has been joined by his daughter Sadie who has been known to climb the lemon tree in search of fresh lemons for bar customers!
