After a late meeting it was nice to find a venue with friendly service. We enjoyed the evening sea air on the stoep and cuisine was quite nice.

After reviewing reviews for this restaurant, we decided to give it a try!

We had the seafood platter, and it did not fail. Really good value for money and excellent meal. The kids had burgers which did not fail to impress them!

This is the best restuarant in Margate - amazing steak and seafood...we went back 3 times it was so good. Friendly service and a fab balcony to watch the world go by. Unfortunately the balcony is also the smoking section but if you get a table at the far end you can escape the smoke and enjoy the view/breeze. Recommend... More
