Service was great, food was delicious and it didn't cost an arm and a leg! The phyllo camembert starter is delicious. The Poseidons rump was cooked to perfection, soft and very tasty. Their vanilla ice-cream is also absolutely delicious!

Lovely setting, wide choice on menu and attentive staff. Made to feel very welcome without being informal. Food was very good, recommend Camembert in filo pastry and as main course Ostrich steaks😋😋😋. This should be on your agenda if you stay here in Umhlanga rocks.

A lovely big restaurant with excellent service. The food was not extraordinary but it was an enjoyable evening. The menu has a great variety of vegetarian options and for that reason especially we will go back.
