Review 

  • ‘I went here with my family and we love the food! My son liked the sizzling seafood and I can totally agree with him. The flavours are exquisite and the view is breathtaking. I recommend coming here before the sun falls since that is when the view is most beautiful. The sun hits the restaurant just right and it feels like we are in another world!’ 
  • I visited with my girlfriend last month and luckily, we came at the right time when there was a band performing live. It made the atmosphere livelier and more romantic in my opinion. I’d like to come back again for sure!’

Review 

  • ‘My family visited this restaurant a few weeks ago and we truly enjoyed the dishes. It is full of flavour and the meat is cooked just right for my taste. The servers also take care of all our needs and our cups are never empty. We stayed for a while because of the view and overall, my experience was nothing short of extraordinary.’
  • ‘The ambience in this restaurant makes me feel giddy. It feels relaxing and romantic at the same time, especially with the sun dipping in the background. It is the highlight of my vacation. I wish I could take the food back to my country. I will certainly miss it!’ 
  • ‘Our first dining experience at Nina’s certainly won’t be our last. Pity we live in PE, so we’ll have to wait for the next visit.

The menu is huge. I ordered a platter special consisting of beef skewers, black mussels, calamari, fried chips and fresh salad. My tastebuds revelled in the varied Med flavours textures. Beef skewers were to die for. At R225 it was an awesome value and could feed 2 small eaters easily. Also ordered a Portuguese chicken salad bowl as an aside, but it was actually a meal on its own. Lovely fresh and grilled veg, babaganoush, avo with rice noodles beautifully presented, great flavours. The grilled Portuguese portion was big and flavourful but overcooked.

We also left with another order of frozen lasagnas, croissants and ciabatta which we enjoyed later.’ 

De Viswijf

About the restaurant

Welcome to De Viswijf! This restaurant is a beautiful and cosy place situated on the left side of Diaz Road cul de sac. It is a two-story building with the first floor acting as a restaurant for the guests, which is further divided into three sections. The first section of the restaurant deals with fine dining for a glamorous dinner. It is the perfect side for late-night dinners and dates. 

The enclosed section outside the restaurant is the semi-fine dining area where you can enjoy a formal meal while also feeling a little more relaxed than fine dining. This area also presents the magnificent view of Jeffreys Bay. The last one would be the semi-covered outside section of the restaurant. This is where you can soak up the authentic ocean breeze while enjoying a meal outside in a relaxed and carefree environment.

Review 

  • ‘The fine dining in this restaurant is superb! All our needs were met and the staff were quick to attend to our requests. I had fun and the atmosphere is intimate making it perfect for the date night that I had with my husband. We ordered the steak and loved every bite of it. I’m looking forward to trying out more dishes from this restaurant’
  • ‘I was out and about by the bay when I discovered this place. It was quaint and the atmosphere seemed nice. I obviously wasn’t dressed for the fine dining area but the outside wasn’t bad either. I felt relaxed and peaceful the whole time. There is something about the food, service and atmosphere of this restaurant that relaxes me and makes me feel like I’m right where I want to be. The prices of the dishes are also reasonable considering how high-quality and delicious they are.’
  • ‘I feel proud of myself for finding this restaurant. It feels like a comfortable place for me and my family since we all love the dishes and the atmosphere here.’

Review

  • ‘I used to come to this restaurant with my family as a kid. I remembered loving the chips and the bacon along with playing with my brothers by the farm. It brings back so many memories. I came back a few days ago and while the place changed a little, it still felt like the comfort place I knew it was in my childhood.’
  • ‘As always, the service impressed me. The food is fresh and delicious. Every bite makes me swoon with flavour. It is also a plus that my son is not complaining while waiting for the food since he can play around on the farm.’
