“If you're staying in Jeffrey's Bay, this beach front restaurant is definitely a must! It is by far my favourite restaurant in town! Enjoy the uninterrupted beach views, while you relax with a glass of wine. They have an outdoor patio area for perfect sunny J'Bay days and also ample space inside for our more windy days. Be sure to make a booking beforehand, as this is a quite popular spot to be! Marius and his team is great with customers and the food is scrumptious!!!”
