Take 2: We visited this restaurant when we were on holiday in Ballito. We love the restaurant in Brooklyn Pretoria and when we learned that there was another in Ballito we had to pay it a visit. This is probably one of the BEST restaurants...More

This restaurant has closed and has been replaced by a pub called Upperdeck. They dont have a large selection on their menu (in fact quite limited). The food is average, music on friday nights is good.

We loved this place!!! What a GREAT view of the I-Ocean. Rustic but FULL of FLAVOR!! Their fish was fresh and the Ribs were just down right mouth watering. Kicked back with a few beers and it was a HIT for me.

We had the Crawdaddy's seafood platter, 1/2 dozen oysters and the creme caramel for dessert and we enjoyed it a lot. Very good quality food, served in a casual and comfortable ambiance. Waiters were very friendly and food was served fast. Definitely repeatable!

Good well priced meals, fantastic seafood, good service and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. If you can't find fresh fish for home, Crawdaddy's is a very tasty and fresh substitute.
