We spend Friday afternoon at the restaurant and I can inform you that we did not regret it. Friendly and kind waiter, good food and great views. Some took sushi others took fish and chips and we all compliment the kitchen staff.

Unmatched views above the new harbor over Walker Bay towards Danger Point, Mountains and town. Relaxed, friendly and professional service with good food on the menu and well stocked wine cellar.

The fish at this restaurant is pretty good. Lovely setting to enjoy dinner. Decent wine list and good service. Gets quite busy so safest to book.

Lovely food, beautiful views, excellent service and very relaxing. We went for lunch and enjoyed a lovely lunch and even saw whales in the bay albeit a long way out.
