*GUIDE DOG AND SERVICE DOG FRIENDLY * The service is great, spot on and the breakfast for a group of 10 was prepared in record time. The food is fresh and tastefull and the view is a bonus. Worth the visit Very impressed by how...they handled my daughter's service dog. Recognized her guide dog SA identification immediately and welcomed us in. All of the staff was trained and knew how to handle the situation - wish more restaurants would follow their example.More

The BEST wimpy in the south coast! CLEAN, friendly staff. The food was awesome and very quick. No waiting in lines to.get in and have a bite, it is also a big spacious wimpy and not cramped.

The fruit cocktail was not up to standard. When we complained we got this response from the manager. He is not saying we are wrong but in his opinion there is nothing wrong with it. REALLY, INSTEAD OF APOLOGIZING HE IS SAYING WE HA VE...NO OPINION. People are going to start voting with their feet.More

David and Benita, owners of Wimpy, gave us personal attention as they did to all their customers. They ensured staff provided excellent, friendly service. I was encouraged by their personal attention rather than relying on their superb managers.

Wimpy is always my family go to place to have breakfast. It just gives me a warm homely feeling when I enter. Their food is great and their lunch menu is also great. Can't beat the prices.

The food is pretty average, nothing to write home about. I think I may have enjoyed breakfast better at Spur

If you are looking for a basic but good meal, visit the Wimpy in Margate, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. Breakfasts are really good and lunch too. Do try the trusted Wimpy milkshake. Staff are friendly and all tables inside have a sea view. There are...amole tables outside and you won't get a Wimpy closer to the beach than this one.More

It had been may years since we visited this branch and went along one Friday at lunchtime to have one of their many choices of breakfast on offer. Always up to the usual standard, except you have to state if you want your bacon well...cooked / crispy, otherwise it comes rather like its been boiled rather than fried.More

Their service was good and the food was very tasteful. Although there was load shedding there service was still good. The only problem was that the aircon does not work from the generator. So it was very hot especially in the middle of the place....It was school holidays so the place was packed. If you like to sit outside it is worth while to wait for a seating outside as you can see and hear the sea. The Wimpy is located just behind the main swimming area in the sea. The afternoon that we went for a sweat treat was also a nice experience. The place was busy but we did not have to wait for seating.More
