This casual restaurant not only offers a fabulous view over the bay but also delicious fresh food. Grilled fish, calamari, steak, spare ribs, they have it all. And not to mention a very extensive choice of South African wines. We had a wonderful evening here.

Thank you Tracey and staff for spoiling us with an awesome lunch. Your wine list is magnificent and enjoyed our glass with the awesome view of Herold's bay. The new menu looks great and the service good. This will always be my most favorite place.
