Voorstrandt was highly recommended to us and wow it was a sensational experience. We had called ahead to book a table and luckily we did, we were seated on the edge of the veranda with the most incredible view of the beach and ocean. The...lady who served us was fantastic and super fast and attentive, she was very friendly and welcoming. We started with a selection of 4 fresh bread rolls and Snoek Samoosa's that were delicious. Our mains we chose included Panton Prawns, a Hake and Calamari Combo and 8 Queen Prawns. The Panton Prawns were light and fluffy, the hake was perfectly cooked, still moist and flakey and the calamari so tender it must rank as some of the best we have ever had. The prawns were large and done in a lemon, garlic butter sauce and were divine! The only failing being the Peri-Peri sauce which was rather mild. Although we were already full, the temptation of granadilla cheesecake was too much, so we each had a good sized helping and it was simply amazing, as my mom said, if there had not been other people there we would have licked the plate. Highly recommend Voorstrandt for a brilliant experience!!More

Went here for dinner, took a friend along and was hoping the meals would deliver but sadly it disappointed. On arrival to the more rustic pub grub decor, I wanted to leave but decided against judging the food on the decor, but gut instinct always...right. The friend ordered surf & turf, the surf was superb, he even commented that the calamari was soft, succulent and crumbed to perfection, the prawns were huge. Sadly it was both our steaks that were stringy and I am not sure of the sauce as we were not offered a choice, was monkeygland, dismal & disappointing. The fresh chips were scrumptious though.More

6 months ago I had a rather disappointing experience at Voorstrandt restaurant. So it took some persuasion by the family to convince me to go back. Very glad I did! This time the service was friendly and efficient and the calamari and fish were fresh...and prepared perfectly. And of course the setting right on the beach is still second to none. I will return!More

We arrived at the restaurant during these crazy Covid times and the gentleman at the reception made us feel welcome the moment we arrived. We have two boston terriers and the rules for dogs were on display at reception and you could sense there was...a real interest in the business with hands-on management. Food was good, service good and we had a wonderful time.More

When they are in stock, and it is Crayfish season, you have to go down to Voorstrandt Restaurant. The Crayfish is cooked perfectly and you are forgiven for setting aside the utensils and eating the crayfish pieces with your hands!

Went to the restaurant last night. We were looking forward to it as its situated virtually on the beach and we were impressed by the reviews we'd read. After placing our order, we noticed a cat roaming around in restaurant. We called the waitress and...told her that we re not happy with a cat in restaurant. It was clear that they were not gonna put their cat out. WE then cancelled our order and left. I think its inconsiderate to have pets on premises where people are having a meal.More

As we were staying nearby within walking distance we went along one evening for dinner at 6pm and had a great table overlooking the beach 🏖 Staff were attentive with smiles and COVID guidelines were in place but sadly the food we had was average...in taste , presentation and was disappointing We ordered two Starter platters for our party of four and it seemed really greasy in texture being the Calamari, Mussels, Rissole and the oyster didn’t seem too fresh either and to follow I ordered the Seafood Curry big mistake The Curry was 159 Rand and again contained the same Calamari, Mussels, One Prawn 🍤 and some cubes of fish 🐠 not actually sure what it was but overall the dish was disappointing and my partners dish of Hake & Calamari was over cooked and slightly dark at first I thought it was Cajun Style but alas it was not good 😌 Desserts were declined as we were not enthralled with the food and didn’t want to make a fuss as friends were treating us to dinner 🍽 and honestly the meal was not up to standard for us on this visitMore

Yes, for children under 10 years. Remember to ask your waiter for the menu should you not receive one
