    The service at the restaurant was good. The setting is excellent. Breakfast was fantastic however I do believe that your a la carte menu does not provide sufficient variety and value for money.

    The restaurant is a definite combination of elegance in service and at the same time warm hospitality, allowing for diverse functions family and business meals. Our favourite dishes: beef, lamb curry and fish and chips.

    An overall 20 out of 10!!!!!

    Booking experience- convenient online booking, perfect confirmation call, short and sweet!

    Arrival- what a BEAUTIFUL space!!!!! I'm obsessed woth the tiles and colour combinations!

    Detail- thank you for the fine touches of making my wife's birthday special!!

    Food - OMG what a brilliant selection of curries, out of this world! The lamb curry was the winner :)

    Bar- beautiful bar, great drinks and excellent barmen & entertainer!!!

    Service - what's the highest score one can give?? Excellent!!!!!!!! Friendly, quick, witty, helpful, our waiter knew the wine list (extra points!!!) and just overall makes u feel at home and not too "stiff and formal"

    We'll be BACK!!!

    much appreciation from Cape Town (foodie capital of SA? ;) )

    Terrace has an excellent location. Table staff solicitous and pleasant. Craft beer was excellent. Food, served at the buffet, very disappointing. Expected a lot better at the price point. Staff behind the server, disinterested and singularly unhelpful. Condiments were good, particularly the Kumquat.

    Beautiful views, wonderful ambience. Oysters, salmon, variety of cheeses, scones, waffles, crumpets, cappuccinos, hot breakfast, ALL DELICIOUS! Complimentary slice of cake and birthday balloons! We cannot wait to go again.

    Our meals were great and the service was world class. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the entire experience was one to remember!

    Firstly we not keen on complaining...since we being asked we thought it best to give our feedback.
    Honestly, were our expectations too high...? Well for an establishment of the calibre of Oyster Box, we don't think so.
    For years we've wanted to dine at the Ocean Terrace- one year the curry evening was booked out, another year for whatever reason we
    only visited the Lighthouse Bar.This visit, it was a must do....but sadly we thought the standard of the food very poor.
    We do enjoy Indian cuisine and have a local Indian restaurant with no atmosphere where we've had superb butter chicken , lamb curries and naan bread consistently.
    Since Friday evening was our last dinner out before heading home as we've enjoyed a weeks dinners out, I must unfortunately say
    our Ocean Terrace experience is at the bottom of our list.
    We are fairly comparing the Indian food we were served with other restaurants we've frequented.
    I shall add though... the service from entering the hotel, the drinks at the Lighthouse bar with Clive's watchful eye over the patrons, the atmosphere, the setting is tops.
    Regrettably the food does not match up .
    Overall experience for food -1 star
