Popped in here for a quick drink whilst visiting Simons Town. Nice views over the harbour. I had a couple of bottles of blond bombshell which were very nice. Received good service during our brief visit.

After a troubling visit to Joburg, I was enlightened by the presence of chef Patrick and his team. They concocted savory dishes meddling cuisines of perfection. I'm a real foodie and travel the world looking for originality. Today I found it at Saveur! I highly recommend this restaurant and its staff to comfort your palette with its traditional and exotic...

We were passing through Simonstown today and had lunch in this very nice restaurant. There is very little remarkable about the premises, but the welcome and quality of the food is remarkable. We had the large prawns and a glass of wine each. Everything was perfect. Pia the young South African who looked after us was excellent. Thoroughly recommended for... More

It's the first time in a while that I have seen the front of house staff working together as a team. Not once did I hear the words 'let me call your waiter' - when we asked for something, it was sorted by the person we asked. And promptly with a smile. A real treat. The restaurant decor is not...

We had an evening meal on Saturday. We'd booked a very nice table overlooking the harbour. That was pleasant but the meal was not. The specials board had fresh caught fish of the day, dorado, with a medley of veg. When it arrived the fish was overcooked and dry and the medley consisted of various colours of heritage carrots which... More

I'm not sure whether Webster is high on life and/or his job. I don't remember the last time I met a friendlier waiter more determined to ensure that EVERYTHING was to or liking. As to the food, can't fault it in anyway.some of us had the special seafood platter on offer, which included probably the tenderest calamari I've ever eaten.... More

Four friends ate here after a long day at the Cape. We were warmly welcomed and the service remained efficient and pleasant throughout the evening - thanks Ruby! Between us we enjoyed the seafood paella, sirloin steaks and a rack of ribs. The onion rings were particularly wonderful as was the recommended rose wine. Only one of our party could... More

Front of house team couldn't have been more welcoming, we were served a drink and given a seat at the bar to wait for the next available table. The restaurant was crazy busy at the end of a long day.
