“Good Food and Ambience”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

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 full means that the Owner must be doing something right. Service rated as good. As usual bar prices pretty steep.

“Porky' grub is great.”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

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

“Good food let down by poor service on this occassion”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

We ate here on the recommendation of a local taxi-driver during a stay at Imvubu Lodge. The restaurant is on the waterfront with an open deck. It was very busy on the evening we dined there. The place had a great atmosphere and we had a good table at its heart.
The food we had was great; tasty, piping hot and plenty of it - good pub grub.
However the service was a bit of disaster. We were at any one time being served by at least four people, including what appeared to be the owner. This resulted in our order getting confused and us eating separately some 30 minutes apart. There was no offer to re-cook both meals so that we could eat together and the ‘compensation’ for the error was a single drink; a bottle of ‘Castle’ for my wife. The disparate service also meant that we endured ‘is everything okay’ questioning from our four servers during the course of the meal; we counted over a dozen times, which made the wait for the second meal feel much longer.
I’m sure we were unlucky and that a subsequent visit would have gone swimmingly and that the food would have been as good.

I had the ribs the night I was there - quite good. The menu has a wide variety of items. Others had a pizza and enjoyed it also.
