We visited Gianni's beach front restorante while on vacation in Ballito. It was a positive experience. I recommend the venue if you like a good view of the sea, seafood, and sangria.
Positive
1. We were 4 adults in the group. One ordered kingklip and it was divine. The sole was very good and a big portion. The person that ordered the calamari was very impressed. The seafood pasta was also a winner.
2. The Sangria is very good.
3. Our waiter was friendly. We loved him. The restaurante was not very busy and he gave us almost all his attention. When we wanted something, he responded promptly.
4. Our food was beautifully plated and hot on arrival.
5. The owner/ manager visited our table twice to inquire if we were happy.
6. We booked a table and received the table with the best view of the sea. It was a pleasure for the eye.
7. We loved the ambiance in the restaurant.

Negative
1. The price of the seafood platter was very high, and with another seafood restaurant (with a special on their seafood platter) below them, we did not try it.

The view is lovely and the service is friendly. There is nothing sensational on the menu, but the choice is adequate for those wanting a variety of seafood and popular dishes. We enjoyed our meal and the daily specials offer good value.

A group of 4, we called on this restaurant to have dinner. A good selection of pizzas and pastas to be had. We ordered 2 different pizzas to share amongst us and were not disappointed. Base is brilliant, thin and the toppings were generous and extremely tasty. Can definitely recommend these to anyone.

Position of restaurant is also great as it overlooks the beach.

We had a lovely lunch here with friends.
Service was fantastic
View of course is amazing
Food was great.
Prices still higher than competitors but their specials are more in line with the market.,

My husbands sole was 6/10 sadly.

I had langostines - they were fabulous . Friend had prawns they were good. Chips were fantastic.

Calamari was ok. Nothing special

We had don Pedro’s which were fabulous.

It was a great place to catch up with friends and have a good meal

Will return.
