Conveniently situated and great position overlooking lagoon and sea. Uncomplicated menu and food to match, but flavoursome and fair value. Prawn curry extra hot good old Durban style curry worth going back for. Burgers could do with some work, for a place that should do good burgers.

Location is right by the beach, which is great. The waiter was very friendly, quick and helpful.

The food is good, if rather typical cafe style. Nonetheless, it was fresh, tasty and we did not have complaints about it.

I would definitely go back for a lunch.

Made a booking for 7 and allocated table for 6. Not off to a great start. Very rustic atmosphere. The view is good. Very limited menu and went for their signature dish. The worst crayfish and langostines I ever had!! This is a good basis fish and chips venue, wirh ample to drink. Dont expect more.

If anything the view from your table at Riptide is wonderful and very coastal and puts one instantly in a holiday mood. This restaurant is unpretentious and serves great seafood. A great venue for normal happy families looking for good value, a comfortable venue where one does not have to stand on ceremony and can enjoy ice cold drinks and substantial, tasty meals. It has big-screen TV and has a quaintly wooden and coastal feel to it where one can be as quiet or as noisy as one would like. Great place for teens and youngsters with a very practical menu.

Seafood right on the beach - what could go wrong? Our dishes were only average for the price. Lots of other sea food spots to try - maybebjust stick to the drinks at sundown here.
