A unique experience and seafood that tastes amazing. We selected lobster, langoustines, kingclip, butter fish and salmon. All cooked to perfection with delicious rice, greens and potato wedges. Staff are brilliant and the atmosphere is great. Definitely recommend.

Excellent food for seafood lovers, only seafood. No menu. You choose your dish, they grill it and you get it. Very fresh seafood. The place is very nice, the service was very good.

We went for lunch after a nice walk on the beach. The kids had amazing Sushi while the parents selected from the fresh fish counter. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about fish. All in all an amazing experience.

I don't think so. It's a dine-in restaurant. I didn't see many delivery services in ZA, except for Debonairs Pizza.
