Fast becoming a popular watering hole for locals, and the food ain’t half bad either!A bunch of friends met here for lunch and they were offering a beer and burger special that was really good value for money. A tasty and hearty burger with chips and there were interesting toppings to choose from.Will definitely be returning for a repeat sometime soon

Fantastic friendly service, veg platter was very good and tasty, rump was supposed to be medium but was a little under done so left a bit that was just not nice, lamb chops were very tasty, had to send back to sear a bit more as under done, would prefer a little more veg with the meal given the price, baklava was amazing... Superb. We enjoyed the meal overall and the staff, maybe just feel like it was just a bit over priced for what we got.

Angelos

Reviewed By zerwickrenatevictor

My husband and I had the pleasure to have lunch at Angelo’s on Tuesday, 9 April 2019 during our holiday in Umhlanga Rocks. We were warmly welcomed and chose a table inside. The restaurant boasts a romantic, inviting and up-market ambiance. It also boasts Italian flair. The lunch menu boasts a variety of dishes which is the same as the dinner menu but smaller portions in some cases and is excellent value for money. We had a bottle of Buitenverwagting Buiten Blanc which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is also worth to mention that the sparkling water they serve (aqua v) is absolutely delicious.We respectively had the cheesy focaccia, beef carpaccio, sweet chilli prawns and Alfredo pasta. All the dishes were prepared using fresh ingredients and tasted delicious. Compliments to the chef!Our waiter was very friendly and unobtrusive. The friendly manager also came to our table to inquire if we were satisfied with our meal and we had a delightful conversation. It was our first meal at Angelo’s in all the years (14) on our annual holiday in Umhlanga Rocks but it will certainly not be our last.

Good atmosphere and great service from waiter (Musa) , the prawn dish prepared at the table by the talented chef was delicious but the steak fillet was dry and warm.(Not sure if this is standard restaurant pricing but a 60R glass of wine seemed pricey when compared to the exact same wine at the supermarket for 65R/bottle)Dear Theog751Thank you kindly for taking the time to complete a trip advisor review regarding your recent visit to our Sugar Club Restaurant.Your feedback is most appreciative and will be pass on to the team.

Little Havana

Upmarket venue for that special dinner, tasteful decor with well trained waitrons. Suggest that reservation is made as I have been there on week nights and always well supported.

Reviewed By cliffordius1

Lovely ambiance, sitting upstairs on the balcony on a balmy spring evening. We had fantastic salads to start, and my wife's main course of seared tuna was delicious. Unfortunately my 400g rump was most disappointing. It was as if it had been cooked on a coldish grill. It was a bit grey and tough, not the seared outside and pink and juicy inside one expects. I ordered a pepper sauce which helped somewhat. This was a pity because overall the evening was great !

The Grill Room

Grill Room at the Oyster Box Hotel.

Reviewed By harters

There’s an old fashioned elegance to the Grill Room – the chandelier, the starched linen, the waiters dressed in their very retro uniforms. Even the menu includes what you wished were more universal timeless classics. One was something definitely out of fashion in the UK – an hors d’oeuvres trolley. We couldn’t recall seeing one in the last 40 years – it was a meal with my father (and he died in 1975). We did remember how good they were. And this was an absolute cracker. There must have been at least 20 different salads, meats and seafood to choose from. Another retro things was the sorbet that arrived next – lychee and pineapple, although both flavours were very muted. We followed that with another classic – chateaubriand – one of the items on the “Gueridon trolley service” section of the menu. It’s an enormous piece of meat, accurately cooked as requested and carved and plated at the table. There’s a bit of showmanship, with brandy being poured over and flamed before carving. And there’s an array of vegetables to go with it – asparagus, courgette, carrot, cauliflower, broccoli and baby sweetcorn. And a very well made potato dauphinoise. And some pan juices to drizzle over and an excellent béarnaise sauce.This had been a lot of food and only one of us felt they had room for dessert. The menu described it as “caramel apple sphere”. This was disappointing, with no real flavour of caramel and precious little of apple. Nor was it a sphere, unless they meant the blob of ice cream. This could have been good if only there had been a good twang from apple and richness from caramel but this just tasted of a generic sweetness. It all made me later wonder if I’d actually been served the dessert I’d ordered.Service was generally good but there was a quibble. The Grill Room is one of the places where, if you order a bottle of water, they don’t leave it on the table. Now, that’s OK if the waiters are “on the ball” and top up your glass regularly. That didn’t happen here and we had to keep asking for the bottle. And the second bottle we ordered, while still eating the main course, didn’t arrive until after we’d finished eating dessert.
