We had the most amazing and tasty oysters for starters followed by a delicious seafood curry complete with rice, sambals and poppadums and a perfectly cooked sole. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and super-efficient and handled the service for several tables with ease. The decor...More

Absolutely delighted to find this little gem in Umhlanga. Food was excellent. Service was fantastic and the portions were generous and not overpriced. Loved the quaint setting. Try the platters...you will not regret it.
