We went as a group and had a very nice time. The service was very friendly and the food, great. After a few bottles of wine we went outdoors to drum on bongos around the bonfire. Delightful!

Enjoyed excellent vegetarian Shwarma with good friends around the fire. Can't be beat. The funky vibe is good fun and the host and hostess were brilliant.

Laid back. Cold beer and good food. Visited a couple of times during our stay in Port st Johns and every time something new to explore in the menu. This is unpretentious good food. Service is laid back like the town, but more than sufficient. We had a good couple of meals ! Thanks guys.

Leave all your prejudices at home and go. The best setting for an eatery anywhere. Awesome value. We had a wonderful crayfish and mussel casserole for R120-00! If you don't want box wine, take your own.

Good view of the ocean from the small deck . Starters and main course we're good.Be prepared to wait a little for your food as this is a small quint establishment and had only one waiter to assist.

Up the hill and therefore overlooking the area invisible post of the beach. Hippie style decor. Fresh food, nothing extraordinary but very decent. Friendly and relaxed service.
