Went to this place after visiting the Penguins at boulders beach. Loved the seafood, wine suggestions and the view. Our waitress Ruby was excellent!

The service was outstanding, with that touch of humour that is the difference between good and outstanding service. Our food was excellent, the portion sizes large enough that we didn't need to bother with lunch. If that isn't enough, the view is amazing

Had a lovely paella on Thursday fish night (more like a risotto in texture than Spanish paella) but wonderful flavour. Service was good and the location perfect for a sundowner or two.

We visited this restaurant on a Tuesday night as they have Special Steak night on a Tuesday. It was early evening and still light outside (C.T. summer) so we decided to sit out on the deck and enjoy the view of the harbour. I had the best steak I have had for a very long time, perfectly cooked and tender.... More

We walked past and Pilot the business development manager booked us in for '2 for the price of 1' burger night. The service was excellent, everyone seemed energised and enthusiastic - so different from many other places in Cape Town. The food was excellent. The view over Simon's Town Harbour is stunning.

Very well received on old years eve. Great effort made to welcome patrons and to enhance the feeling of the festive season. However, the lamb loin chops came from Australia and the lamb walked all the way. Tough as old Goodyear tyres.

The seafood was delicious! Had seafood salad and husband had dorado and we will return for steak night. Our favorite spot in Simons Town. Pilot took care of us with smiles - the wait staff Kim took time to teach us some Xhosa phrases. Jason got us lined up with Uber app and Pía was all service. Two great experiences... More

We went here for dinner. The calamari starter was lightly breaded and nicely cooked; served with a nice chili sauce. We each had a steak for our mains. They were tender and properly cooked. Service was very friendly. Next time I go back I'll order calamari as my main.

This group is well renowned for their good food and service. The Moroccan Lamb Kebabs on Couscous and seasonal vegetables was very good if overpriced but the special meat platter of ribs, steak and lamb chops whilst well prepared was at nearly R300 was ridiculously over priced for the size of the meat portions and served with a very ordinary...

After 4 nights in Simon's Town, we tried the Saveur Restaurant at the Boardwalk Center. Talk about saving the best for last. This was an excellent meal for everyone in our group. Personally, I had the Gnocchi Carbonara (which was one of the daily specials) and it was very flavorful. My wife had the Gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce which was... More
