Sitting on the terrace under the trees with a beautiful view of Long Beach. The food was delicious, service average. I would go back again as the food and view were worth it.

Another good meal at this lovely spot. Stunning location, beautiful deck with incredible view of Noordhoek beach. Lovely, attentive waitress. Order "fish and chips" ... generous portions and tasty. Great jungle gym to keep the kids happy.
