We stayed in Cape St Francis over December 2013. Booked a whole day at the restaurant for 8 people on 31/12/13 for my husbands 56th birthday. We ordered eisbein and was informed an hour later that it was not available. We then ordered the seafood platter - waited an hour after we had enquired where the food was and it was cold once it arrived. The restaurant was not busy at all. The waitron was extremely slow and not trained at all. The manager was not available - she had gone home for the afternoon. The wine only arrived after we had eaten. Was very dissapointed and it spoiled my husband's birthday as well. Expensive for what you get. Will never set foot there again.

Starter of Mussels were from frozen and chewy, garlic sauce was nice. Main course again from frozen but just about acceptable. Bill scrutinised and found to have another large glass of different wine on the tab. Only small tip given. Maybe better with a coach load coming in, but watch your bill! Expensive for what you get.

The food was ok. The waitron was extremely friendly but the food took very very long (although the restaurant wasn't busy at all). We were a table of 5 and only two of us were drinking wine. By the time we had finished our wine the food had not yet come. We ordered the special of the day which was pork chops -m we were told that the reason why the food took so long was because they had to defrost the chops. (Strange when it is the "special of the day" you should have these ready to fry). When it came to paying the bill there was also a problem after 30mins of unsuccessfully trying to put our charge onto the card they finally agreed that we could charge it to our room bill.

There was live music at the bar which was very nice.

We had the Duck special on a Friday for the first time and really enjoyed it. The duck is served with pancakes (and or mashed potato) and plum sauce. A portion is half a duck, slow roasted. Extra sauce is there for the asking . The service was very good including replacing an opened bottle of wine that had been mistakenly delivered.

Joe Fish in Cape St Francis never fails to disappoint. They have some of the best calamari on the east coast of South Africa. This is where to eat when in Cape St Francis!
