Well located : Walking distance from Radisson Blu and Sun Broadwalk Hotels, near the Ocean. A well maintained park in front of the restaurant. Well decorated , pleasant atmosphere and not too big, hence not crowded. Meals are delicious, and served well by professional waiters.

This restaurant has truly stood the test of time. The wife and I ate here 10 years ago and a few things remained the same. Excellent staff, superb food quality and exquisite wine list. This is the recipe for endurance in the competitive restaurant bussiness. I sampled some of my wife's calamari starter - heavenly tender! My escargot entree was... More

We arrived half an hour prior to our booking, but we were showed immediately to our table. A choice of complimentary drinks were offered I had a dry white wine & my wife had a sweet white wine. The menu was extensive & very reasonably priced by U.K. Standards. My wife had a beef tagliatelle & I had a BIG... More

A restaurant I've eaten at for 40 years whenever I'm in port Elizabeth. Even though the restaurant is quite old fashioned, the food is always of a high standard and the service good

I dont know where other people have been snacking, as they have given it OK marks. The day that we went there, the staff were reluctant to serve us, the table needed cleaning and we had to wait ages after we had asked for our bill, before one of the staff brought it over to us. We never had a... More
