We ate dinner here one evening. I had the biggest burger I've ever had, and it was fabulous. We all had different meals, and they were all great. The malva pudding was a highlight - so good. This is a nice, casual restaurant with lots...More

Even though the place was packed, we got seated immediately. Our waiter Steven (7), was so amazing. He was there when needed, but never lingered. He managed a quick conversation. You could see that he is very proud. We had the most delicious creamy snails....More

Visit once a year and always have the 500g queen prawns. Great sauce. Great service. Just never expect fresh prawns, most definitely frozen. Taryn is the most amazing server I've ever come across!

Thank you for taking the time to review The Kingfisher. Our prawns are unfortunately frozen as they are imported from Argentina. We also thank you for the compliment concerning Taryn, we will ensure that she gets the recognition she justly deserves.

We had dinner at Kingfisher and were pleasantly surprised. The service was good and the food was delicious. We revisit when in Mossel Bay.

Great location. Advice given on choice of fish proved excellent. Service was good, efficient and friendly. Extensive menu and would certainly recommend to anyone.

wonderful view, overlooking the bay. Much nicer menu than the restaurants on ground level below. Good oysters, excellent fish - sole, butterfish and kingclip - and friendly service.

The service is good and so is the food, both the fish and the pizzas. The location is excellent with lovely views over the ocean. While we were eating we were watching the seals playing in the waves.

Hi EricaDefin Thanks for your review. However we are sure it was for Delfino's Restaurant, our sister restaurant downstairs. We will make sure the compliment gets passed on. Davek

We were told this was a better restaurant than downstairs. We were most disappointed. Had calamari three ways. The calamari was tough. The chilli one not that great. We regretted our choice. Great view but that is it. We won't be back.

Thank Mespey
KingfisherMosselBay, Manager at Kingfisher Restaurant, responded to this reviewResponded 15 June 2017

Hi Mespey Thank you for your review. We understand your disappointment with your meal as calamari should never be tough, especially from a restaurant specializing in seafood. We will certainly look into the matter. Regards Davek

The Restaurant is upstairs and the view spectacular. The service good and attentive. The food was well prepared and tasteful. The salads were great. Great place for holidaymakers - especially if you do not know the restaurants in Mosselbay.
