We enjoyed fries and a margarita pizza with an absolutely gorgeous view. The pizza was yummy and a good size for two to share- 4 slices each.

The surfshack is approximately 9 kms/5 miles from the centre of Cape Town in Camps Bay. We went to the restaurant last weekend whilst SA was in Level 3 lockdown and they were very good at ensuring safety, with hand sanitiser and 2m distancing. The...service was good and the waiters friendly. We ordered an avo and rocket pizza which was good but we had to pay extra for the fresh rocket, which was wrong and a salad which was good. Although the food is good, it is expensive.More

Surf shack offers the classic beach view restaurant feeling. You could easily think you are in Miami Beach or somewhere in California. Nice buzz and professional service, although as a family you notice that you are not placed front row even if they were free......sad but I guess that is to expect Pizzas were really good and so was the burger. Although my daughter tells me that the "sexy sauce" was too spicy in her taste, so maybe a watch out for that if you have a sensitive tongue. Otherwise, a safe bet for a lunch on the beach.More

We came here twice during our 5 days in CT. Great food, great service and great location to,watch the sunset. The oysters with lemon grass were amazing, so was the cured salmon appetizer. Everything we had here was great and very reasonably Riced.

Nice venue overlooking the beach (that is if you can get a table). Not all menu choices available on night but still good food at a reasonable price. Friendly staff.
