    Food is excellent. However the little things like having the tables cleaned and high chairs with straps that work and enough cutlery should not be happening. View is obviously great but the service and energy of staff was underwhelming. Pls fix these little things

    Nice location but the food was a bit disappointing - generally things were over-sauced and this detracted from the otherwise potentially delicious food hiding underneath

    We booked a table and when we arrived we were told to 'just sit anywhere' the staff got our order wrong twice and were disinterested in serving us. The food was great as always, but the service was really disappointing and rude in my opinion. I have been to Daniel Sans 3 times and this was the worst service by far.

    Love the atmosphere there and the food was delicious! Particularly the KFC and the Large Sashimi. I also love the cocktails there. Bar service was easy and the cocktails didn’t take too long.

    Food was fantastic! Good atmosphere. Just hate sitting on tall bar stools with no back support. More tables and chairs for the oldies!

    I waited an hour to get my food. Then I got the wrong one. Then they had to cook the fish and had to wait another 15monutes. My husband ordered a meal and got the wrong one also as they didn’t have any left. I probably wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. However they did compensate us with free drinks and only paying for one meal.

    Apart from the poor waitress spilling our drinks all over us... the food was delicious ??

    Daniel San

    Sadly the lunch menu was very limited, and there was no indication anywhere on the website that this would be the case - the team was excited for the food options, but nothing we'd planned on choosing was available for lunch. We were also the only table in there for lunch on a Friday, so the atmosphere was abysmal...

    A great place to bring a group. People were allowed to pay for their own bills, the service was great and the food came quickly. Staff was super helpful and friendly, and was not hesitant in adding tables for us when we realized we might have more people than expected. Good atmosphere and interesting fusion food.

About the restaurant

Mr San will see you now...

Combine a Japanese gaming arcade, a hard core rock and roll bar and a beachside bungalow and that’s an indication of the craziness that is Daniel San. This restaurant is a bit of an all rounder which can transform and reinvent itself depending on what is required. Daniels San’s Japanese street food is fresh, unique, fun – and above all, totally delicious. And better still, everything’s served with a spectacular beachside view. Whether you're popping in for a snack or lingering from day to night you can gaze while you graze.

Best dish: sushi boat.
