If you are in the George/Wilderness/Mosselbay area, this restaurant is totally worth the trip! Excellent food and service, and the best view in the Garden Route. Come just before sunset for the best experience nature has to offer. Stick around for the atmosphere and great food.

I wouldn't want to give this place a rating but am forced to give 1 star which is totally overrated. Fish was SOGGY and RAW! The batter was equivalent to that which one gets at a corner cafe - and not the beer battle which they advertise falsely on the menu which should be crisp. Calamari so chewy i couldn't... More

Feedback from our customers is always welcomed and any experience shared is valuable in assessing and growing our business to ensure customer satisfaction. However on this occasion I would like to point out the following factors which I feel led to this most damaging and unwarranted review- On your arrival you were informed that we unfortunately do not allow dogs...

We came for a late lunch to enjoy the view and have a light meal. The golfers platter for two would actually feed three to four. The salads were extra large. Food was good and service was helpful and friendly.

Stunning view, amazing food and the best service from Gillian. The ribs were some of the best I've ever had and the deep fried feta starter is definitely a must.

Whilst the views are indeed spectacular, they do not compensate for very average food and service. Steak was served without any vegetables or garnish and was comparatively expensive. Waiting staff had to be asked to take our order them prompted to ask how the steak should be cooked. Disappointing.

Spectacular views and consistently good food makes this lunch or dinner spot high up on the cliffs of Herolds Bay, a winner. Staff very pleasant and service good. The ribs and chips were so good I went back the next day for a repeat meal. Fried calamari and caprese salad also excellent.
