After walking around the Tuzi Gazi Waterfront we chose Porky's, as it appeared to be the nicest restaurant about. It was pretty full but we were seated immediately at a nice table. The waiter was very attentive. We ordered appetizers, main dishes and a bottle of wine. The appetizers of snails in garlic butter and fried mushrooms were good, but... More

Good on Porkies, it always delivers. Six of us had a meal and we all praised the chef for the great meals. The waiter was very attentive and did her best to meet our demanding expectations. I recommend porkies.

Have just eaten dinner as a party of four. Three of us ordered prawn cocktail. Prawns were hard, small, chewy and over cooked & doused in cocktail sauce. Husband ordered prawns wrapped in bacon crumbed and deep fried and he thought they were good. We all ordered the main course of crayfish was R140 which was the size of a... More

Came in off season and one of only places open. Must have been a bad night, but food was not good, service very slow. Staff was very accommodating to our complaints and we thought they tried hard to fix situation. Just not what we expected. Lots of people seemed to be enjoying themselves, so don't want to be too critical.

The food here is very good. However, make sure you have plenty of time because the service is very slow. Have a nice castle beer and a 500grs steak. Perfect.

Staff very helpful and although the restaurant was full they managed to find a table for three. We all chose the specials, the fish dishes were quite expensive and my guest felt that parts of his main course were to tough. His wife was happy with her choice as was I with mine. The fact that this eatery is ALWAYS... More

The food was excellent and the service was fast and friendly. It is situated right on the waterfront and the yachts gently bobbing around with the night lights reflecting off of the water is very pretty
