We went for lunch as it's walkable from Oyster Box Hotel. Service was friendly and both the fish and the steak were excellent and very reasonably priced. Could certainly return again.

I hired the private dining room for a dinner for 15 people. It was exquisite, from start to finish. Good communication, good food, good service. Have also eaten in the main restaurant and it's excellent value for money. Recommend the dining room hire highly if you have a party of 16 or less. Fabulous venue.

Great restaurant, refreshing with crisp white linen, white leather chairs. Excellent menu, superb service. Ordered Rib Eye steaks, the were prepared perfectly - just the right amount of Maldon salt and black pepper.

Our monthly ladies lunch saw us at this venue yesterday. Visited only once before a few years ago but a firm favourite of our hostess. Noticed they do a very reasonable 2 & 3 course lunch for R120 & R140 but when 2 of the ladies saw the Norwegian Salmon on the main menu that decided them. I had the... More

This restaurant has not yet disappointed. From the beautifully served drinks to the delicious cappuccinos, everything was first class. The service was exceptionally friendly and attentive. As a starter we had the delicious and crispy duck spring rolls finished with toasted sesame seeds and light soya dipping sauce. My main course was the chargrilled barracuda with red salsa - of...

We've been to Umhlanga a few times and we were a bit hesitant to climb the stairs thinking it was more a cuban bar than the upmarket eatery we found. The hostess at the top of the stairs basically bowled us over and said they were fully booked my wifes reply was i relly want to eat here. All of... More

Again an amazing meal, as I am sure many others would agree, as the resturant was full. If I really want to try and find a fault , the one waiter had a little tear in his shirt otherwise our meals were perfect, service impecable. No one in our group of 10 had a single complaint or moan about a... More

Back again. The measure of a truly great restaurant experience is consistency- especially over many years. And they are exactly this. Best is, I'm not a big meat eater ! We had a chilli prawn salad that was just sooo delicious. My husband had the rump - which he raved about. I had a seared salmon on basil mash with... More

Upmarket venue for that special dinner, tasteful decor with well trained waitrons. Suggest that reservation is made as I have been there on week nights and always well supported.
