Bright and airy, although we arrived for lunch during the last half-hour of loadshedding and the restaurant was hot. Luckily when the fans kicked in, it cooled the place down quite quickly. For starters we ordered Halloumi cheese and a Mussel pot and both were delicious. The Halloumi could have been fried a bit longer for more crisp, but was still good and mussels had a generous helping of creamy sauce. For mains, our hosts ordered Kingklip Thermidor and a variety of sushi offerings, which were delicious and fresh (we sampled some). Hubby ordered grilled Kingklip and I ordered 6 Queen prawns with chips. The Kingklip was ordered with rice and there was a generous helping of creamed spinach as well. Sadly the prawns were disappointing and small, almost no difference to the JD prawns. But the chips were steakhouse cuts and were fresh, crispy and well cooked. Perhaps it is safer to order 10 or 12 JD prawns for a more satisfying experience, or a combo meal. Maybe next time. Unfortunately I am always too late when remembering to take photos🤦‍♀️, but will endeavour in future

Went for dinner tonight 27th December with my daughters as a family. My main arrived first 25 minutes later my 1st daughters arrived, and my other daughter who order sushi order was not even processed. Our waiter never communicated, never cleaned glasses or dishes. Waiter never asked if we want more drinks. 1 hour 30 minutes still no sushi for my daughter. Manager and waiter had awful attitudes. Food received mediocre and SERVICES awful. Don't bother you will be sorely disappointed!!!

I visited here while on holiday recently on the recommendation of family. I was very hesitant as John Dory does not have the best reputation here in Cape Town but I couldn't believe how different they were. The restaurant was very clean and modern inside with a superb view of the beach. I ordered the calamari which was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The service was also really excellent!
