Restaurant Reviews:

Ooh their sushi was amazing! We also had their breakfast specials which was really good too.

The centre that the restaurant is in is in a dreadfull state. The restaurants windows look as if they had never been washed (Typical Gautenger opinion) and this put us off John Dory. Today for some unknown reason we decided to try the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The interior is well designed and extremely clean. The staff were friendly and helpfull. The menue was extensive and reasonably priced. I ordered oysters but unfortunately they were out of stock I then settled for a sushi poke bowl. What an amazing dish. My wife had a John Dory platter for one which turned out to be excellent. Her only complaint was that there was too much food All in all and excellent lunch in a great restaurant

Food was excellent. My husband had prawns and mussel pot with chips. I had peri peri chicken breast with veggies Service was excellent. We were welcomed by the manageress Nokwanda, with warmth and courtesy, waited on by waitron Bongiwe who explained about the dishes and was prompt in her service. And our plates were timeously cleared away by Mxo one of the runners who is in training. Really pleasant, courteous young man.Thank you for an unforgettable experience at your restaurant. Will certainly recommend it and will definitely visit again when we are in Scottsburgh

Thank you for an awesome meal and amazing service! When we left it was pouring with rain - not only did the manager give us two umbrellas to use for our elderly parents to get to the car; but she also came out in the rain to take them back so one of us did not need to get wet returning them! THANK YOU

Had lunch at John Dory's in Scottburgh today and was pleasantly surprised with excellent service and quality food. Descent portions, nice and hot and quick service. Will definitely be back for more . Fritz & Linda Weilbach

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!
