Reviewing restaurants in Santa Lucia gets really redundant because they are almost all pubs. The Santa Lucia Ski Boat Club is average by international standards but actually above-average for Santa Lucia, thanks mostly to the atmosphere (it's near the water in a peaceful part of town rather than on the main road where the only view is of cars and...

We enjoyed it so much we went back. Lovely relaxing location to dine. The view of the estuary is very nice and when the work is finished will be perfect. All the staff are friendly and efficient. We enjoyed all our meals cooked to perfection. This is somewhere I would definitely recommend.

We were introduced to the St Lucia Ski boat club by Jon Burke and had some drinks with him and Kieries - lovely evening, with hippos in attendance as well.

Good food. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly waiters. Lots of activity across the Estuary as work continues to remove sand between the Umfolozi River and the Estuary so that more water can enter the Estuary.

Got my best steak ever here - and at a very reasonable price too. The restaurant was full of overweight fishers, but still a nice place ;-)

We had a very entertaining waiter who explained everything well. Even so, the size of the meat course was an enormous surprise - it was enormous! However, we had an excellent bottle of wine and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves sitting outside looking at the view and the interesting work removing a peninsula across the estuary!

The name says it is a club but the restaurant /pub is open to the public. It has a fantastic view from the outside tables where you can watch hippos, corcs and more. I would like to write a review for this, I also have photos.
