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

While the food was great, we really loved the service. The server was fantastic and made us feel right at home. We had the gnocchi and bacon/avo burger, finished off with the fudge creme brulee. The sea view was also incredible - really a special...evening!More

We celebrated my dad's 80th birthday party there. I organised with Scoobee beforehand to be allowed to decorate the table we booked. There was no "uhms" and "ahs", it was immediately "no problem!" A week later, the night of the party, when I arrived with...the decorations Scoobee wasn't working, but the staff members on duty immediately knew. Later when we arrived with my parents Webster excitedly took us to our table, he was also our waiter for the evening. Webster's service, friendliness, enthusiasm, knowledge of the menu and wine menu was unbeatable. The food was absolutely amazing! And when we thought things could possibly not get any better, Webster and his colleagues sang "Happy Birthday" to my dad and presented him with a beautiful desert with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate. The manageress who heard us speaking Afrikaans congratulated my dad in her broken Afrikaans - How special! These are the most beautiful group of people! 5 stars all round!More

Good service but little ambience unfortunately. Pretty standard fare and menu. Waitron was very friendly and helpful.

We had supper here on 28 December 2020. The view from the window-side tables out towards the harbour is excellent, especially in the early evening as the sun sets. The wine selection is not huge but there is sufficient choice of great local wines. The...bottled craft beer selection is limited and no on-tap/draught beers are offered. The menu has a wide variety of options, especially seafood. The mussels and calamari were superb. Several red- and white-meat options are also available. Service from the wait staff is also great and always with a smile. This is not a cheap restaurant but I was not hesitant to pay for the excellent supper we had. I will certainly return here again.More

Usual high standard at Saveur. Breakfast special was very good. No cutting back here, full breakfast with free cuppachino. Beautiful morning views over Simon's Town. Highly Recommended.
