Back on holiday and wanted to come here. It is not as good as I remembered. Prawns seemed smaller and were overlooked. Sauces were still good but won't go back again

This small restaurant is tucked away in the Elridge Shopping centre in Ridge Road Boksburg. The service was good although the waitress seemed a little new. Food was a little slow in coming but quality was excellent. The manager was on hand to ensure all went well. Waiters need to learn that when you order wine with your meal, you... More

Delicious and tasty. Nice menu and good compliment of wine to complete a great meal. No other restaurant has been up to scratch to their fish. Well done and congrats

Since they have been at Elridge Corner the quality of their food has better. They use to be good when still at Key Largo but at one stage they went through a dip where the food was not as great as it should be. I cant recall any bad experiences just a dip in quality, but this is back to... More

We really enjoy Jimmy's fish dishes. Very tasty and reasonable. The prawn specials are also not to be missed. Friendly and efficient staff. We have been back and experienced the same standard of service. Noise levels in the parking area close by can be disturbing, if you are sitting outside.

The food was typical chain food and nothing special at all. Service was friendly but not as fast as it might have been. Prices were ok. Would not go again.
