Nice location with a view out over the sea. Good cocktail list and very reasonably priced food. Blah blah blah.

The year is 2018 A.D.. All of Victoria Road, Camps Bay is occupied by nondescript restaurants. All? Well, not entirely. One indomitable eatery is holding out. The legion of humdrum restaurants, soulless in vibe and staff, cater mostly to tourists who visit but once. You...More

We really enjoyed our meal, wanted a lighter dinner, opted for The parmigiana aubergine and spicy chicken salad- both turned out to be delicious. Attentive service, watched the sun go down through the big windows, tasty wine, couldn’t ask for more!

Loved the location, loved the service & loved the food. Sunset from the deck was beautiful. And half-price happy hour cocktails wasn’t bad either!
