Sadly, the owner has left management to staff who show little interest in supplying quality & service. Under the previous family management this restaurant was really good supplying food & service of affordable quality. Our large R90.00 pizza had little topping & very tough pizza base.

A total waste of time and money. They were out of stock on all cocktails, water and most AFB's. Mince Pizza was disgusting, grey mince with no sauce. Onions and green peppers were still raw. We will never return!

This unassuming eaterie opposite Scottburgh railway station has been in existence for many years. It's proprietor is an Italian legend and at 80 years old, spritely and warm in his welcome!! It's very hard to choose from the menu as along with traditional Italian dishes cooked to perfection, the steaks and spare ribs are unmissable!!

Absolutely crap, I asked for a castle draught and the only they've got is castle light or Windhoek draught. I asked them for a curry which is on the menu and the tell me there is no curry. Will never go back again.

Visited three times during our stay at Scottburgh caravan park. Greatest pizza. Good atmosphere. Owners always there for a chat.

The South Coast of South Africa sees thousands of visitors on a regular basis, All looking to relax and get away from the big city.. Funny though the majority of these visitors end up sitting in a mall, at some franchise chain restaurant eating slap dash dishes they eat every week that bore you to tears.... I guess it's a...

Stopped over on Friday for a drink - did not eat anything although I am reliably told by a regular that they serve a pretty mean pizza - pub was very quiet - service was prompt - typical seaside ambiance - laid back with the cheaper variety of drinks on offer. Did appreciate the snacks that was offered.Will probably go... More
