Average food and service located beside the boardwalk and good parking. Good value for money, you have good view of the ocean from the balcony.

“Not to be Missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Good thing I did not check this restaurant out on Tripadvisor before going there recently for Sunday lunch. Had I done so would not have gone there and would have missed out on a fabulous meal, wonderful view of the beach and sea from our window side table and excellent attention from the owner and staff alike! Perhaps recent reviews gave management a wake up call? My wife had the special prawns of the day with chips and veg, I had one of my all time favorite meals the fish stew. Both excellent and certainly not overpriced. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Giannis and would go back there if ever we get to visit Ballito again.
