My son was badly injured in this restaurant when a glass jar of chilli disintegrated in his hand as he put the lid on. Severed his major tendon in his right hand and scalped his index finger. 2 operations and now disfigured for life. The...restaurant offered a first aid kit and to call an ambulance. Since the incident they have not been interested in correspondence. What was meant to be a fun Father’s Day celebration ended in a very costly and stressful 8 month ordeal.More

Our morning at Deep South Eatery truly lifted our spirits. The tasty breakfast and Jabu's warm and welcoming presence made us feel like we had made the perfect choice for enjoying a wonderful morning by the ocean. Perfect day out and even better after a...swim at Glencairnin the tidal pool.More

Good location near the shoreline. Good service from our waitress, Vuvu, who was very helpful and efficient. We all had fish and chips and all enjoyed our meal. Highly recommended.

Best to stay away. We did not get to experience their food. After an hour's wait, still no food at sight, so we gave up. First some chaos about the orders. Our friend was told to eat in the other restaurant after having ordered one...of the specials. Then they agreed that he could eat with us but still no food. A bottle of still water actually contained sparkling water, so not sure who falls them how and where.More

Terrible food and terrible service. We went to celebrate my Moms 85th birthday. Waited hours for our food. Food bland with no care taken on presentation. Bad service from waitress. Such a disappointment

Was recommended by a local and was very happy. The enclosed porch allowed us to enjoy the ocean views while being sheltered from the strong winds that were a constant. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious including a great sushi selection....The decor is very classic and the views make it a great spot to linger. We had such a nice dinner that we returned for lunch the next day.More

We were trying to find a well-known pub on the approach to Simonstown when a south-easter got the better of us. We bailed out and decided to take a chance when we saw a large eatery on a side road to our right. The first...challenge we had was the price of what we would consider standard pub food. The size of the portions may have had something to contribute, but as light evening eaters, we found our choice quite constrained. Not even a "ladies' steak" on offer. We opted for pizzas with a view to taking home a "doggie bag." Both were soggy in the middle and completely tasteless. My artichokes were undercooked and like rocks. We sent back our substantial leftovers. To be fair, it is clearly popular among the locals -- for us, once bitten twice shy. There are alternatives.More

Nothing that we ordered on the menu was available. The food that did arrive was meagre. They did not charge us for drinks but so sad. Such a lovely setting.

Went here for half price sushi on Thursday and got made to pay the full amount. I waited 1.5 hours to get 6 pieces of sushi and I got told that I paid the right amount and I didn’t get my money back.

Had the pleasure of dining there last nite. The beautiful setting of this establishment overseeing the ocean. Beautiful venue and warm welcome from staff. The food from starters to main course and dessert was so incredibly delicious. The presentation of each serving or dish so...professionally done, you feel like royalty. Perfect spot for family and couples wishing to dine out. Recommend Wednesdays nite for the 4 course meal special for 2. Definitely going back.More

We had a large table for a birthday lunch. We were told on a weekend that there was no chicken burger, no pulled pork and no salmon for sushi. Great start. That is quite a large section of the menu. Being gluten free I ordered...the prawn fashion sandwiches. When they arrived they were the size of Legos, I'm not sure why restaurants do this? A half portion cut in half when it clearly wasn't a starter. The gluten free pizzas arrived with mingy toppings and on those awful mass produced glucagon bases. They were awful. Not sure why the standard was so low, I won't be going back there.More
