“Good food, value for money and freak location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

Went there twice during our two-week stay in JBay. Had a variety of dishes which were all good. Greek salad, mussels and calamari starters were all good. The main courses included peri peri prawns, calamari and fish combos, paella and Thai food curry. All well worth trying. The wine list is extensive with choice for all. Tried the desserts on one occasion and these were all good. If weather is good then sit outside.

“THE place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

I've tried most of the restaurants through the Tripadvisor list including kitchen windows (disappointed after having eaten in De Viswijf and setting the benchmark) and Infood and Lovefood etc.

1. Fantastic and accomodating staff
2. Beautiful and romantic setting
3. Amazing steak, amazing oysters, amazing fish

Been to this place 3 times in a row! Just can't get enough.

Staff were very kind, owners were extremely personal. I asked for a cab to take me home, instead they went out of their way to drive me home!

If I'm back in Jbay, will def be my regular haunt, and will def go back just for memory's sake.

I won't forget this place in Jbay!

Thank you!

Great venue with great staff running the place. The food was the highlight though. Had the seafood paella and the Thai seafood curry. Portions were great, taste was devine and the whole night was memorable. A definite must if in Jbay.
