Chose Sage after reading some reviews. Area is super nice to go with kids but the food is disappointing. Order a prawn and zucchini risotto with a few prawns and zucchini and lots of cream. Cheese used on the risotto and pizza smell and taste old socks. Brie and cranberry samosas were good.

Good food in a lovely garden, perfect for children. Reasonably priced. Too busy in season and the staff do not manage well.

Lovely scenic restaurant, situated outdoors. Big menu, food is divine, and it's nice and relaxing. Will eat their regularly. Little lifestyle shops next door, and lts of space for the kids and while family. Definitely worth checking out!

This place served one of the best meals I've ever had in South Africa. I visited with a group of 12 people and they were all astounded at how tasty their food was. Particularly commented upon was how moist and tender the Chicken was and the creativity of their dishes. I've not had the chance to go back yet, but... More

1 of my favourite place for lunch in this part of the world. There is a very extensive menu and every dish is divine. Reasonably priced with seating both in and out, you simply can't go wrong

Lovely setting under the trees next to the kids play area. My 3 year old did sand art while we waited for our food. I had the Thai chicken stack and my wife had the chicken penne, both delicious. Kids shared a kiddies bolognese . Great venue for when it's too hot for the beach

A great place for families with small children. Great quality food at a reasonable price. Children can be occupied for quite a while on jungle gyms, doing sand art, jumping castles etc. Also a great place for parents to relax knowing that there's a secure and safe environment for children to play. Amazing dessert...just saying.

Thank Govender F
