“Sadly disappointing”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We had some breakfast there. Firstly there was at 9am already a bachelors party going on accidently shooting some guests with 'bibiguns' and being quite noisy; secondly the food was cold and the waiter mixed up the orders, and thirdly the menus were totally wasted - please get a new print. It is a nice beach view, but service not so great.

“Fantastic family restaurant”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We stayed nearby in a holiday apartment for a week and after experiencing their breakfast, tried it for lunch. We returned four times over the week and found Mario, Marcell and the team to be both professional and welcoming. I tried the steak, seafood and various other Greek dishes and had no problems at all.

So a big thank you to all at Ocean Sizzler for making it special for us!

“AMAZING food, views and service!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This was our first time at The Ocean Sizzler and WOW, it was amazing. Our waiter was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. We ordered steaks and prawns on the side. The steaks were done to perfection - not to mention the 500g T-Bone steak being on special for only R89! The prawns were so fresh that they just fell out of their shells. I had a choc mint martini which was also very good. I would recommend this restaurant to absolutely everybody! It was a bit of a drive for us but SO worth it.

“It couldn't get worse......”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

It was a beautiful sunny Sunday......the idea of a good lunch by the sea was really exciting....and then disaster struck - it was called the Ocean Sizzler ! To start, the waiter had a really bad attitude....we waited for over an hour for our food....the food was tasteless, over-priced and the restaurant is in a drastic need of repair. The tables are badly chipped, the seats were broken, the floor was dirty and generally the place looked like a dump.

“Table for two....or was it three??”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Ordered the seafood platter for two which was excellent. Very tasty and value for money. The downside - the head waiter was over familiar, pulled up a chair and joined us!!! Have marked this review as average only for the reason about the head waiter and not for the food otherwise it would have been good/excellent.
