The Crest Restaurant at The Beach Hotel is something out of the ordinary, from the crisp décor, stained glass windows, wooden ceiling beams and skylight feature, to the seafood and carvery buffet prepared from the freshest and choicest ingredients. The breakfast buffet includes a variety of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals and a selection of freshly baked pastries. The Verandah serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from a varied menu in an outdoor setting offering a view of the beach. The Verandah is also well-known for its selection of unusual and classy cocktails – the perfect way to end a busy day. Located adjacent to The Beach Hotel, but part of the hotel group, is the restaurant, Ginger. With spectacular views of Hobie Beach and the magnificent azure Indian Ocean, the menu at Ginger takes fine-dining to a whole new level.
