Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was delicious, with Jayrene serving us with her lovely smile. The whole experience was fantastic. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside but trust me, its a restaurant you'll want to go to.

The food was awesome and our Waiter, Prince , was very pleasant with a great smile. Brink your own alcohol because they are not licensed.

We shared some braaied dorado and gurnard and a mussel pot between two people. The fish was fantastic and perfectly cooked. The mussel pot was incredible, we ended up scraping the last bits of sauce from the pot with spoons. Our waiter Zandile was very...kind and gave us amazing recommendations.More

Fish was very nice, well cooked and tasted good. Service was friendly but very slow considering we were only the second people in there. Not sure it lived up to its status for us based on other Tripadvisor reviews sadly.

We spent a lovely evening with the whole family and enjoyed every second of this culinary experience! The food is extraordinary and served by super attentive and nice waitresses and waiters. Jayrene took very good care of us - thank you so much! Come and...enjoy an authentic dinner in the pure surroundings of a fish factory at the lagoon.More
