Guests are spoilt for choice in the long list of dishes to choose from, including good vegetarian options.
The gratineed prawns is a good starter option. De-shelled prawns served in a garlic cream sauce and baked with mozzarella cheese are full of flavour and come with bread to dunk into the creamy sauce. For those not too keen on fish or meat, the stuffed mushroom is a perfect start. The grilled brown mushroom filled with creamed spinach and feta then oven-baked with mozzarella cheese is delicious.

For mains, if you’re not selecting from the sushi and shellfish spread (which includes a wide variety of prawns – including the yummy coconut bay prawns coated in a coconut crust – and is accompanied by a Pina Colada dipping sauce) then the meat selection is good to choose from as well. The steaks are Chalmar beef, matured for a minimum of 28 days and for an extra preference can be lathered in a pepper crust and flambéed in brandy, creating an exciting theatrical vibe. It comes with a side serving of giant sweet onion rings in a lightly crisp batter and a choice of veggies, chips, baked potato and or salad.

The lamb chops diablo, flame-grilled to your liking, is juicy and flavourful with a trio of mustard crust. The spice route on the menu includes a lovely seafood curry selection.

The dessert offering is limited, featuring quirkily named desserts such as The Ice-breaker (vanilla ice-cream ready to melt beneath a layer of homemade hot chocolate sauce). For the chocolate lovers, the Hawaiian mudslide is the perfect ending to a generous meal.

Similar to the wide variety of dishes to choose from, the bar menu does not disappoint. The wine list is more on the affordable selection. The menu includes spirits, aperitifs, coffees and special drinks such as gourmet milkshakes. Cocktails include some classic and signature ones.

Speedy, fun, and friendly waitrons.

The views of the sea are great. The restaurant is busy and a local favourite. It’s buzzing and can be a bit noisy at times.

The portion sizes are hefty – it’s best to go when very hungry.

  • What a weird experience....probably have driven passed this little gem hundreds of times. Looking for a place to have a light lunch, my wife suggested we stop here. I am fussy at a restaurant. Because I like my meat & seafood done exactly to my taste (and having been disappointed way too many times) I rather have something "safe" for the first time at a restaurant I've never been to before. I was impressed with the range of burgers seeing that it is more in the "gourmet" burger category. I settled on a Big Blue burger..... What a DELIGHT!!!! Taste & presentation was top notch!!!! Coupled with a bright, sunny, wind still Cape Town summers day, the experience was more than pleasant. Catch 22 will see us soon again and this time we will sample some of their other delights.
