Let me say this up front, the quality and taste of the food, the décor, variety of offerings at the Sunday lunch buffet was all acceptable but not top class as I knew it in the past. What was shocking was the level of service and the approach of the waitrons. Some examples; 1. We were seated at a table... More

My partner and I loved Kipling's. Any night in PE this was the first place we would have diner at. The last visit on New Years eve was quite a disappointment. It remains an above standard restaurant, but is not anymore close to the standard it had 2 years back. Starting with the positive the waitress was attentive, articulate and... More

On the 29th December my family and I visited this restaurant. Eleven of us in total. Family from Australia, Gauteng and Port Elizabeth. The complimentary starter and breads were good. 9 people at the table ordered steaks. It took almost two hours for the meals to arrive. The steaks ranged from extremely overdone rumps, to fillets that couldn't be cut,... More

However as we were heading towards mid afternoon, all the hot food had been prepared an was cooling off in the Ban Marie, shame the braai did not stay lit for the whole lunchtime. I am sue early diners... More

Service is really poor. Not what you would expect from this establishment. Menu is very limited. Breakfast is very good but not dinner.

Great food, great variety, superb sea views and amazingly friendly staff who assisted with even the smallest detail. Cannot comment on price as my meal was sponsored.

We visited at the end of a stay in Port Elizabeth, this was the best meal we had. The ambience is quiet & peaceful with well spaced tables. The courses were excellent with a bouche amuse and a cleansing sorbet. The main course grilled steak was large enough for 3 people but the lovely server was happy to wrap it... More

Two dinner experiences that were excellent on both occasions. The service was first class, attentive and discreet in that they do not hover around the table or wait until you have a mouth full of food to ask "Is everything all right". The rib eye steak that my wife ordered was beautifully cooked but huge. Luckily the restaurant offers a... More

My family and I have frequented this eatery many times. Our favourite dish is the T-bone steak as it is an absolute WINNER. Presented with eloquence in quite a regal atmosphere is is just simply the best. The staff are attentive and very efficient. The customer's well-being and comfort ranks supreme. This place is highly recommended especially for it first... More
