We came from Boulders Bay (the penguins place) and had a nice diner here. We decided to go for antilope goulash. It was tasty, not something extraordinary. Prices were normal, the service really excellent. The staff did a good job. So, in the end, it was an average to good quality restaurant, inside a nice building and an even better... More

It was fun to watch the penguins swimming, but the food, calamari and salmon pasta, was distinctly mediocre.

This place was recommended to us by two different people, but we were not very impressed. Maybe just a not so good experience. Can happen. In fact, our fish on the sea platter was not ok, totally overcooked or whatever. It could not longer be called fish. However, when they saw that it was left and asked about it, somebody... More

Had my birthday dinner there and was quite disappointed. The food was rather average or below that and quite expensive in that. I had a fish platter. I'm very certain that nothing on this plate besides the prawns were prepared by the restaurant but rather bought pre prepared and heated up. If I grabbed an frozen piece of battered hake... More

We ate at Seaforth on our way to visit the Boulders Beach penguins. Food was very good and the place is right on the beach. We sat on the grass after lunch and watched the ocean.

Seaforth beach has penguins and boulders and its free to enter. I preferred this beach to Boulders Beach. The penguins are nesting in the bushes at the back of the beach, great photo opportunities. Lovely restaurant overlooking beach. Free parking

This is one of my favorite places in Simon`s Town to go to for dinner, their prices are not bad for the amount of food you get. Lovely seafood

The food was below average. I had a Seaforth Seafood Platter (kind of a poor man's seafood platter) with some very overcooked hake hidden in a deep fried cocoon, 2 prawns and 3 black mussels, way overpriced for what was on the plate.

A wonderful place , right next to the sea. Staff were very friendly and obliging, and service was very quick. A large varied menu to choose from - the best calamari I have ever had! So tender and fresh - wonderful! Restaurant was full, therefore suggest a good idea to pre-book a table at lunchtime. We arrived at 12.30 and... More

Met some old friends when the restaurant was very quiet in the evening. Right on the beach where penguins frolicked the position was great. My word the food was terrible though. I had the seafood platter which tasted all fried all the same. The portion was far too big and I did not eat the fish because it smelled off.... More
