Great place to enjoy the sunset with a tremendous view on camps bay beach. And if the waves are good you can even observe some surfers.

We ordered spare ribs for 2 and grilled calamari for 1. Lunches are a treat at this spot - fantastic ribs, succulent with a tangy marinade. Entire meal a real pleasure. Beach views unbeatable!
