    we had an excellent dinner. Two of our party had the Curry Buffet and were VERY impressed! We ordered from the menu and the Cape Salmon and Kingclip Mornay were perfect. Our server, Michael, provided superb service, and we wouls ask for him again.

    Arrived at the oyster box with high expectations, only to be let down bitterly. Upon arrival, I was told my booking for the terrace was now inside (not what I originally booked for). Then was told the only table available outside was right in the corner by the waiter station and bar. The whole dinner with my wife I was interrupted by the constant banging of the waiter door, waiters clearing there throat and nose and talking right next to us and non-stop up and down right in front and behind our table. Not the most romantic of evenings. This coupled with the fact that I had to ask my waiter for a menu three times, serviettes (twice) and something to drink (twice) throughout the night made the whole experience really disappointing. Food was good besides the excessive amount of bones in my fish portion of the fish espetada. Wont be returning.

    the food was average, ive had better for half the price, speaking of price, why is everything so expensive? almost a 200% mark up on goods.... crazy, the waitress, Penelope was very chilled and rather clumsy, also had the cheek to ask for cash as a tip instead of adding it onto the bill, assuming because she doesn't want to share her tips. the view waa great but certainly not worth the R4k spent. Unfortunately i wont be back and i wont recommend it to others.

    Lovely afternoon.

    One word to describe the experience: Amazing!
    I was treated like a true VIP. From the red carpet, to the polite staff, who welcome you like they have been waiting for you all day... the food was great, but the highlight for me was the venue and the service by the restaurant staff...
    A huge thank you to the staff, they clearly leave no blurred lines when it comes to the difference between dining and eating. Next time I'm in Umhlanga I will definitely dine there again.
    Thank you

    We went to Ocean Terrace for their famous curry buffet, which was excellent! Such a great variety of curries, too many to be able to try them all.. It was fantastic as always. Thanks for the balloon for Bruce's birthday, the cake with "happy birthday" and thank you to Billet who made it extra special as always

    I was not impressed with just an Indian buffet, I suggest a buffet that will be friendly to people who are not so familiar with those dishes but who would still like the variety that a buffet offers.

    Service very good
