My wife and I dined here and both had grilled Hake with Calamari and it was very tasty. The restaurant is unpretentious and seemed very popular with the locals (always a good sign). Good friendly service throughout.

Great food and a relaxed atmosphere, which is exactly what I want when I'm by the sea. So nice to have a different menu depending on the fisherman's catch. Umhlanga is becoming very franchised and this little gem is local food at it's best.

After reading the reviews I thought we had hit the fish jackpot. We sat outside - huge mistake traffic horrid and noisy. We had to go inside to ask for a menu. A horrible short man threw one at us with a very rude demeanour....More

Introduced to this restaurant by some locals for its excellent seafood. The fish and chips was only the best we have had for a long time. Friendly and quick service. We surely recommend this place and look forward to come back soon.
