We visited this place on the off chance and they managed to fit us in so i would recommend booking in advance as they appear to be always busy. The food choices were varied and tasty and the portions large. The staff were friendly and attentive and it was well priced.

We ordered the sun-dried tomato & olive focaccia and the calamari starters. The focaccia was good, with a nice thin and crispy base. The calamari was unfortunately rubbery. We added lemon juice, but that didn't help much, so we sent it back. The calamari returned, still rubbery and tasting like lemon juice. It was the same food, just heated some... More

We arrived early evening without a booking. The restaurant was just expecting a large party to arrive, but made a plan for the four of us. Given the preparation for the large party,we had a very pleasant meal, which was cooked properly and well presented. Only issue was no additional bread rolls, but hey it's only a small thing. The...

It started when we ordered the prawn and chicken curry - the waiter gladly took the order and off he went...then, the food arrived, chicken curry with some of the tiniest frozen shrimp imaginable - we complained that there were no "prawns" - the waiter then remembered that they had not actually had any prawns for two weeks, hence the...

After all of us were seated the eaiter took the orders for one of the two tables and processed those. Only much later he came to our table to take... More

While staying in Port Alfred our host, at Dune House, recommended the Links for good food. Well...we were pleasantly surprised. We sat outside on the deck while downing a few cold ones and then moved inside to enjoy our food. The fare was really good, the service was wonderful and the cost was so reasonable. We were truly well looked... More

This was my second visit and the food was very good and I would recommend they as a good place to eat. My only negative is that I like my meat dishes cooked to my liking and this doesn't here. They will ask how you would like your meat done but I doubt this get conveyed to the cook as... More
