None of the overpriced pretentious nonsense of some of the 'high class' establishments. 4 people enjoyed soup, pasta, steak and pizza and an ok glass of white ( far more drinkable than the box wine offered in Burgandy!) Brilliant attentive customer service from Melanie with the addition of some fabulous stories. Loved it, thanks.

We decided to take a picturesque drive to the annual Whale festival. We had family from Gauteng and were meeting others from their long drive from Secunda. Seeing the whales was amazing and though it was extremely windy, the resturants near the square were packed and people were queuing to get food. We decided to take a walk through the... More

We love Italian restaurants and this one in particular The pizza was thin and crispy. My husband enjoyed his cannelloni while our friend finished their linefish. The service was excellent and friendly. Overall we had a great experience and the prices were moderate as well. We recommend this lovely Italian restaurant.

Had two different pizzas and the pasta pesto. One pizza was very good, the other OK, but the pasta was a disappointment.

To start with: the Rossi's bread is wonderful! Really enough for a main! Hake al forno...to die for. We have had so many hake dishes the last 6 months, but this was the best! Thanks Rossi's

Rossis provided us with a great relaxed dinner place. Situated away from the bustle of the main roads and beachfront it was very pleasant to sit back and relax. Lots of parking alongside the restaurant too. Service provided was professional and advise given regarding portion sizes was greatly appreciated. Food was served very quickly and was tasty and hot. Definitely... More

The place at night is very scary with lack of proper street lights and didnt feel safe to visit. Overall from the food perspective, simple disappointed. the staff however,... More

We had an excellent supper at Rossi's. The service was friendly and good. The atmosphere makes you feel at home. We were having a late supper and finished around 10 - a large family of 10 came in and instead of saying the usual line of the kitchen is closes, the maitre'd said welcome, with a friendly smile and accommodated...
