The location of this restaurant is okay and that’s where it stops. The service is dreadful, the food only just eatable and to top it off there are no lights in the toilets, a dangerous experience. Don’t go to this place.

A fabulous vista, great staff and incredible food and amazing prices. This restaurant is definitely on my return to list. Sitting on the edge of the harbour it is lovely to sit outside and admire the view while sipping delicious drinks and eating amazing food....We all opted for the seafood platter and we were not disappointed.More

Went for lunch. Had early dinner. Inky got the food about 30 minutes before this post. The waiter was hopeless. Took forever. Forgot the order. Reminded him and he forgot again. It was hot as hell inside. No music playing. The manager came and apologized...for the poor service and it continued anyway. Food - it was good. Just took very long. We couldn't wait to get done and leave. I don't think I'll return.More

The location is amazing, with great views across the bay. The menu is varied and the food was fine but as a lady alone I really felt ignored! I would not return

Went to this restaurant with the kids hoping for an easy afternoon lunch and recieved the worst service. No one bothered to take our order after 30 minutes of being ushered in and seated, and yet the waitresses were taking orders all around us. Even...after raising the issue, a waitress showed up at our table to argue with us that the table we were sitting at wasn't hers so we should just chill and wait. after 35mins and with now understably hungry kids someone took our drinks order. those drinks never arrived and eventually after 45 mins we decided to leave as clearly no one was interested in giving us service. On my way out i asked for the manager and shared our dissatisfaction at the poor service. She didn't even know who was supposed to service our table. So in a nutshell, it was a terrible afternoon in Simonstown.More

Waited 15 minutes to order a glass of wine, ordered my food at the same time. 20 minutes later my wine and food arrived at the same time, dismal, wanted to enjoy my wine before eating. It was loadshedding so was told that all fish...would be grilled, no problem, seafood platter arrived, prawns were dry and overcooked and the rest was swimming in oil/butter. Couldn't get the attention of a waiter, went inside to pay and left very disappointed.More

Service was quite good. I liked the way the waitrons had neat uniforms looked professional. Some items on the menu were not available due to loadshedding. Mains were tasty. None of us were impressed with the desserts, that can definitely be improved on. Lovely setting...and beautiful view.More

We opted to have Belgium waffles instead for lunch - and we found these to be great. There's one or two speciality ice-cream venues nearby, and their waffles off the dessert menu options were great.

We ordered Fish and Calamari Combo and Baby Calamari with garlic. The food was tasteless. The garlic butter was nothing more than a blob of melted butter. The chips tasted like it was made the day before. There we beggars roaming the pathway between outside...tables and harbor which was annoying notably one person who tried to sing with her primary school child playing drums. Not even South African style music. Sounded more like wailing of somebody missing a loved one in Nigeria. The mother did not look like a South African.More

Didn’t tell us they had sold out of chips until after we ordered drinks and starters. Fish wasn’t great and steak was completely overcooked. Management attitude unapologetic. Taking advantage of one off tourists so reputation does t matter. Won’t be going back ever

Well sited the restaurant is on the sea front at the centre of town with tables on two different levels with the option of inside dining or outside. Like so many places in the town the seating leaves much to be desired when considering comfort,...bench seating outside and upright chairs inside there is nowhere to sit comfortably, watch the world go by and maybe order even more drinks. Instead the seating encourages people to leave at the first opportunity. The staff are cheerful, helpful and willing with nothing too much trouble. The food choices are limited but well prepared and rival most other outlets. Regretfully the large open rooms encourage children to race about without a thought for quiet dining and the play area exacerbates that issue. I dined there a number of times content with food quality and service but very disappointed with the comfort level and layout. A discreet adult dining area with comfortable seating could do very well, there is certainly sufficient space.More

Gorgeous view. Perfect breakfast (and I can be very picky...) my husband had the full house omelette (understatement) and I had the salmon benedict. Amazing coffee and attentive service from Buli. 10/10

Lovely seafood restaurant on the harbour front. Excellent value seafood. We loved the prawns and calamari. We ate breakfast lunch and dinner here over several days. Probably best during the day when you get to sit right by the water and enjoy the views. Staff...were lovely especially Princess who we had as our server a few times. Casual place for dinner.More
