Restaurants Jeffreys Bay

There really is plenty of choice of good and decent restaurants in Jeffreys Bay. Although the cottage The Gem has a full kitchen, you can go basically every day food and enjoy the variety of different restaurants and deals. It certainly will not be bored. In our experience, the service is friendly everywhere. Children also tend to be much more welcome than in comparison to restaurants, for example, in Germany. Often there Kiddies Corner or you just do not bother, when children run around. This is then ‘relaxed Africa’ and not ‘stressed out’ Europe.

In fact all the restaurants you can pay by credit card. Please always remember to tip for the service with. This is also on the bill always indicative. The operation is thus obtained, from the tip, their pay. Maybe the waitresses are therefore always so friendly :-).

  3 Fat Fish
Very pleasantly furnished fresh. Really delicious food. Pizza (very good), fish (great) and meat (delicious). Leave room for dessert – yummy too! For appetizer like a cocktail – does not cost much. Wines compared to other restaurants chosen rather more expensive but good.

nina’s real food

From the outside is, a bit unimpressive, nina’s restaurant embedded in the row of shops around Spar. It’s a full day restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Well worth a visit anyway. Inside, a pleasant market hall atmosphere with high ceilings and a central bar counter. The food variety is of South African curry, about Italian Pizza and Pasta, meat and fish to Thai curry. Very tasty and solid food.

Since then we have children, we judge Spur as a perfect place to eat. Why? The grilled burgers taste really nice and – most important – the children are being looked after by a nanny in an extra room where they can play swings, climbing or Playstation. Perfect. We walk together to the restaurant, choose, what each of us wants to eat, drink and just afterwards the children are gone to play. Than we adults can choose for ourselves undisturbed and order and entertaine us. If the food is ready, the children will range up and it is eaten together. Then again to play and rest for us. 🙂 (Spur-special: Kids eat for free on Wednesdays – Condition: Per 1 full paid adult meal = 1 child’s meal for free!)
You can of course also go withot any children to Spur. Food is perfectly fine.

Which is a separate area with secure parking. You get in the driveway at the gate a free parking ticket, which is the driving away to give back. This parking ticket is best “to worst” bear, as a car only comes out when the driver can show a parking ticket.
There are several restaurants on the premises on which an artificial lake. A Greek, Japanese, Chinese, Steakhouse, Italian, fast food, etc.. There are also a cinema, a casino and several shops on the premises. The shops here are open until 22.00 clock.

By the way: In South Africa it is also not allowed to smoke in the restaurant. If you still not want to forgo the usual enjoyment, we recommend electric cigarette smoker from smart. Take a look at the website:
