Simon's Bar is beautifully designed with vintage motorboat engines decorating the walls and in the centre is a wood-fire pizza oven that produces the best artisan pizzas in the Garden Route. Signature pizzas like our Buffalo mozzarella, marinated cherry tomato & spring onion or our famous Cuban styled Pulled Pork, baby onions, red peppers & rocket are as unique as the space itself. Most of our ingredients are home grown otherwise locally sourced. The Bar stocks beautiful Cape wines and our barman makes a mean cocktail to enjoy feet up, watching the sun set over the Bitou River. Simon's Bar Trading Hours: December to January Tuesday to Sunday: 12:00 - 23:00 February to November Dinner: Tuesday to Saturday 18.00 - 21:00 Sunday Lunch: 12.00 - 15.00
