Located at a lighthouse at the wave’s edge, The Lighthouse is one of the most spectacularly situated restaurants along the Garden Route. A delectable selection of South African favourites awaits you on the menu, sprinkled with perfectly prepared seafood and succulent steaks from the grill.
The chilli prawn and sesame noodle salad catches our eye on the starter menu, as well as the lamb’s liver pan-fried with balsamic onions and served with garlic mash, and the flash fried calamari. For mains, the fresh cob, seared and oven baked and served with a lemon cream sauce sounds out of this world. We’re happy to find good ol’ beer battered fish and chips on the menu, with mussels in a spicy tomato and coriander. Rump, T-bone and fillet steak are all locally sourced and well matured before portioning. The Point takes pride in serving the best South African dishes, with their own flair.
Harissa Chicken is spiced Moroccan style chicken, slowly braised in harissa paste; Slow Braised Lamb Knuckle is braised in white wine, with tomatoes and rosemary, served with garlic mash and seasonal vegetables.
