We had lunch here after a visit with the penguins at boulder beach. Nice sunny table over looking the harbor. Service was excellent and to be surpassed by the food. We tried the fish special and the friends had a chicken sandwich. Both were super!

Not bad, but not great. Service was pretty underwhelming- having to walk up to waiters numerous times during the meals. Three of us had steak fillets- all found them tough. I had gnossi was under-cooked. Breakfast omelette had way too much cheese on it and...banana smoothie was poor- very icy.More

I ordered the Eggs with smoked Salmon and avocado crush which was first class! Perfectly cooked and so very tasty. Plus the good service and wonderful views. Highly recommend this place! Perfect way to start the day and bicycle to Cape Point afterwards:)

Warmly welcomed by the establishments manageress / host, our table of 16 friends and family was well looked after by our waiter Scooby. Service was equalled by food quality and value. By far out-rates the abusive experience we had at Berthas just minutes before. Like...the saying goes, everything happens for a reason.More

Very poor service. We waited for a good hour and 30 minutes only for the food to come cold. We would notice other tables being served before us even though they’d come after us. We only got The food is blah and dry. Doesn’t even...look visually appealing, if anything I lost appetite when the food did arrive. Eventually. Saveur is not the greatest restaurant you could stop at to quickly eat. It is indeed very disappointing and I would not recommend it to anyone. (Picture below) Waited so long for this!?More

If you are needing a breakfast while in Simons Town, I can recommend this place. Their twist on French Toast using a croissant is delicious and visually appealing. I would 100% take a Sunday drive just for that, any time!

Saveur is the breakfast provider to the Quayside Hotel upstairs. And what a provider! We had different breakfasts every morning and they were all top notch. Great taste and presentation, combined with stunning views across the harbour. And the staff are great fun, especially Mr...Pilot.More

We both had the Tuna and frankly were it not for the baby potatoes (which were not up to scratch) would've given this restaurant 5 stars. The waiter kindly replaced them with chips which were excellent. Great views and fantastic service. Wine is also good...and very affordable. Have been before, and will be back !More

This restaurant is excellent for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Being in kidney failure stage 5, I have a very restricted diet being KD Vegan, NO SALT! I understand it is very difficult to accommodate me and we went to a few restaurants close to our...hotel, but nobody was willing to accommodate me. My husband eats normal. LeAnn looked at the list of foods that I can eat and she and the chef worked our different meals for me for the 2 days we stayed in Simons town. I was completely blown away by their ideas and what they gave me. The food was delicious and the waiter, Ian was excellent. Michelle the other managers also helped me a lot in the morning. Thank you so much - if it was not for you, I had to starve for the 2 days and you made our holiday an enjoyable experience! I can really recommend this restaurant. They really go out of their way to accommodate you. They are fantastic!More
