Ruby was stellar on service! Food was good and nicely presented. Had a tasty vanilla milk shake too. Rustico Plank was nice assortment and had flavorful sauces. Lamb skewers were seared and vegetables served on couscous were very good.

We were last in Simon's Town in 2004 and struggled to find somewhere to eat. This time, we were lucky enough to find Saveur. We had a table outside overlooking the harbour. Our waiter was great, good fun and very helpful. Lunch was excellent, just right - very tasty and well presented and the drinks were good too. A super... More

We had a lovely lunch here yesterday, sitting overlooking the harbour. Our waitress was Ruby, a real Gem! She looked after us so well. I had line caught yellow fin. It was served with a variety of vegetables. The creme brulee was perfect. We eat far too much!

I called into Saveur on the recommendation of a local shopkeeper in Simons Town, as I only wanted a light breakfast.... however ended up choosing the French toast tower with bacon, syrup and nuts. I enjoyed every morsel. The french toast was so light and delicious. Wish I had more time to explore the lunch and evening menu if breakfast... More

Just returned from holiday and had a number of meals in Saveur and can say every meal we had was delicious with excellent service. The fish and steaks are especially good but then everything we tried on the menu was well cooked and delicious. If you are in Simon's Town this is a restaurant not to be missed. Can't wait... More

We really enjoyed the vibe here. The owner welcomed us personally by name (loved that he immediately saw that we'd checked in there on Facebook and took the time to introduce himself - hilarious!). Our waitress was great as were the other servers who all pitched in to make our lunch a memorable one. The fish cakes were brill, and... More

Saveur really does have some of the best food in Simon's Town, no doubt about that. And excellent and varied menu, and various themed "special" evenings - steak night, burger night... I dined several times and was always impressed by the food. And the value for money; not at all expensive for the standard of the food. Having said that... More
