    Food was fantastic - everyone was very happy with their meals. Decor also impressive, the settling is lovely. Service was stilted. I had booked online and mentioned that this was a corporate dinner reservation, and suggested we be seated in the small room on the right do we dont disturb other patrons being a table of 10. When I arrived, we had been seated at the high table by the bar, not suitable - but managed to move our seats to the small room I originally had in mind. I again mentioned to the gent that helped move the tables around that this was a corporate dinner - i.e. the company is paying, so scope to upsell on the bill! Our server ended up being a lady - name might have started with an E? She served us but just barely, walked by many times avoiding eye contact, so was difficult to get her attention. The restaurant was almost empty mind you. Expensive wine was ordered, brought to the table warm. An ice bucket was requested, it arrived half full. The owner of our company was out of his seat a few times searching for more ice and jugs of water to try fill to cool the (red) wine down. We waited ages to order mains, a gent told us the specials of which one was a soft shell crab that 1 guest was interested in. By the time the order was taken the guest ended up ordering the baby bunny chow - so a missed opportunity for an upsell. Food was fantastic as I said, everyone happily tucked in. We were further ignored for a while and by the time we managed to catch the servers attention for coffee and dessert just after 9pm, the kitchen was apparently closed. 8 of the guests were keen for dessert, so another missed sale there. Even if we had been offered a limited 1 item (ice cream in a bowl? slice of cake?) we could have ordered. Disappointing - we were treating our guests and didnt even know that 9pm was too late for dessert, this could have been communicated earlier in the evening ("get your orders in"). The server didnt seem to be interested in going the extra mile, I would have suggested Irish Coffees or even a round of Amarula on ice etc as a nightcap but the vibe was more "kitchen is closed, please go home"....

    We ordered starters and it took a very long time to come. Food tasted very average. Calamari tasted incredibly fish-like.

    Absolutely a different beautiful vibe. The new ownership is incredible and they visible with positive mindset. I wish them every success. They made a difference to this magnificent restaurant. Well done. Will highly recommend Sunsets and Mermaids.

    Pros: Attractive waiters Decent music Nice ambiance Con's: Waiters take long to serve. Not all foods are available from the menu. People get too drunk & are not controlled. Reservations are not always kept for the times made. Kitchen closes early. No parking reserved for the venue.
