We stumbled across this restaurant and what a gem. Chanel was a lovely host, chef, waitress and overwhelmed us with her hospitality (even though she needed to keep fires burning). This restaurant radiates personality and her pizza is a made from scratch; wood-fired art. We...will always pop in when in Struisbaai. As with all things made with fresh ingredients, it is worth the wait. If in a hurry, this is not the place you. BUT, good things are worth waiting for... Thank you for a wonderful evening 😊💕More

Nicely set up inside and out. Have enjoyed our visits here. They have specials at very good value from Mondays to Thursdays.

Service was friendly but slow, even though restaurant had only one other table, with customers. Food was very good in both quantity and quality. Pricing very reasonable. Need to improve kitchen ventilation, as smell of frying food was very noticeable, in the restaurant area.

Thanks Peter and Reggie! While the power was out in Cape Agulhas - the only place with gas keen to help us out with a needed cup of coffee and breakfast. ^^> Great conversation and recommendations about the area and local stories.

We stopped in for a quick lunch , not the prettiest surroundings by any means but we warmly welcomed by the staff. After a fair wait we were pleasantly surprised by the food - very tasty battered chicken strips ,tangy sauce,coleslaw and chips. Very big...portion for a “bar snack” and very reasonable . Hats off to the new waiter and cook and I hope we have time to try some main dishes before we leave.More

I am vegetarian and they were happy to accommodate me with mushrooms instead of bacon. Homemade delicious bread- good breakfast - served baked beans which I enjoy. Coffee fantastic. Service- very friendly waitress- there is a pub in restaurant with tvs for sport. Overall a...pleasant establishment.More

Service was slow and tedious. Only realised when food was set down why we waited so long. The chicken was a touch cremated mess and the pizza was minuscule and flavourless. When the chef is off duty give this a miss.
