A bunch of friends having a get together, looking for a good dining experience. Glad we made a booking as this place was packed.Good menu but pricey.But definitely worth it if you take into consideration the whole evening: good food, great friendly service, awesome views...great experience and fun night out . Definitely will not regret dining here.

Bookings essential so do not be disappointed if you just want to pop in. I have been here several times and I love the food, the quality is 5 star, the price is a bit steep but the ambience and service is great.
I would not suggest booking for a special occasion like Valentines Day as the price will be double, rather go on any other evening, the restaurant is in Ushaka and it makes for a lovely romantic outing.

Great quality food even though it is a bit pricy, ambience and service does make up for that. It is a bit of a bother that you have to make a reservation and cannot go and eat there if you decide on the spur of the moment to go to Ushaka Marine World, I do think that if they are not busy they should allow walk-ins.

A well situated restaurant at Ushaka Marine World. Booking is essential for lunch and dinner but it is well worth it. The food is delicious and the price extremely competitive. What a better way to enjoy your dinner in the hold of an old ship with Sharks and fish swimming right next to you. A great spot for everyone.

Just by looking at the menu, I knew right there and then that this was going to be a great evening. From oysters to mussels to calamari my mouth began to water because I knew I deserved this after my long tiring day at Ushaka Marine World. The lighting in the restuarant is brilliant and the surroundings of the restuarant fits beautifully. From where we where sitting we could see all the sea creatures swimming and was a truly wonderful experience. The waiter was so kind and we even took selfies with him with the fish swimming in the background. Food was a bit on the pricy side but didnt mind as I made up my mind that I wanted to experience this place no matter the cost.

Seriously a must visit, how awesome, fine dining at its best, the Ambience simply can’t be beaten…. I booked a table closest to the shark tank so it was awesome such a romantic setting….. The service was absolutely 100%, the food was 100%, the staff attitude and friendliness 100%......Yes they are even wheelchair friendly and showed my disabled boy so much love and attention he loved every minute the whole experience was perfect…. My one and only criticism is it was quite expensive but in their defence I feel it was worth every cent

What an awesome place to go to with an awesome view while you are eating. It is truly spectacular and somewhere to go with your partner for a romantic evening or even to take guests too for a good conversation. The food is great and the service is excellent.

Really a wonderful experience to share with that special one. We had a birthday lunch here and it was really cool to eat with sharks swimming pass you. The food is verry fancy, we had seafood and it was delicious and prepared just perfectly. They are verry pricey so to celebrate an occasion its just perfect.

Nothing beats dining with the ambience of live sharks and in a actual ship and their food is just as good too :D

Always a favourite when visiting DBN. The quality is excellent (esp the venison and desserts) and the ambience cannot be beaten. An old ship converted into a restaurant, complete with cigar bar and Raggie viewing. PS remember to book early and ensure you get a table close to the sharks.
