You will find Millers Thumb close to Kloofstreat. They are offering excellent fresh fish. They have a always changing menue and the waiter are a great help while deciding on your meal.

Stumbled across this place after a fellow holiday maker recommended it. I had the jambalaya and hubby kingclip both meals Michelin star standard. The owner is an industry professional . Such a charming hostess and lovely staff. Highly recommend but you need to book

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
