Table of 7 celebrating a birthday. Starters, main and dessert... Each course came out in drips and drabs. First person served had finished by the time last person was served. Slow to clear empty plates. Food was cold and obviously sitting in the service area...More

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.

Hi Sophia Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The biggest complaint that comes from any business is the failure to communicate with the client. We did have a few hick-ups post mad rush but have identified the areas that you highlighted...More

Oh dear!.We had booked for Supper and after ordering drinks on the Terrace we selected from the same Menu from a year ago. 2 starters of welsh rarebit turned out to be a runny greasy mushroom sauce on soft bread with grated cheddar on top....More

Our family breakfast on 01 January 2018 was rather disappointing. Slow and inadequate service. We arrived to an outside table that hadn't been cleared. When we eventually received a menu, it took quite some time for a waitron to take our order. Our food arrived...More

We are regular visitors to Thorfynns, but tonight was very poor. We booked in advance, but there was no sign of the booking, we waited half an hour for drinks, we couldn't get the wine or the beer we wanted as although they were listed...More

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.

This place is great if you want to escape the buzz of Cape Town and feel a bit more nature. The place reminds me of South Coast restaurants with its lush vegetation and view lurking between the greens. Food was average but prices are so...More

Thank you for this review and pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, the Noordhoek beach walk is truly amazing!!

Reviewed 3 April 2017

This restaurant cannot handle as many patrons as its full capacity will allow. If they are full, your service will be bad, and your food will be bad. We had a booking of 40, which they gladly took, and then got defensive when we complained...More
