Please note the The Crayfish Inn @ La Montagne is temporarily closed for renovation. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Enclosed high up in the tower of La Montagne in Ballito, The Crayfish Inn is a charming old-world restaurant, which continues the fine tradition of its namesake in Ramsgate on the South Coast.

Here, an intimate fine dining experience is on offer with candlelit wooden tables surrounded by nautical décor and plate glass windows overlooking the resort. Patrons can look forward to a fishy feast consisting of the finest freshest ingredients that the ocean has to offer.


For starters, the creamy Mussel Pot is heavenly, and the Crayfish Thermidor smothered in a delectable sauce oozes flavour and delicate textures. The prawns come highly recommended and they don’t disappoint, dripping with butter, goodness and superb flavour.

A wide range of fish dishes and salads, which are all tasty in their own right, can also be enjoyed. The Crayfish Inn is open for dinner seven days a week.


When planning an event of any kind, you need look no further than La Montagne with its great facilities and venues to ensure that your function is a resounding success. The dedicated F&B team will consult with you beforehand to ensure that your needs are met, and will be on hand on the big day to make sure that everything goes as planned.




Driving on the N2, take the Ballito Drive off-ramp towards Ballito. At Simbithi Drive, turn left and then immediately right into Leonora Drive. Continue with Leonora until you reach the t-junction with Dolphin Crescent where you will turn right. At the end of Dolphin Crescent, turn right into Compensation Beach Road and the destination will be on the left.
