What an absolutely wonderful evening spent here tonight. Thank you Fred & Challyn for the spectacular evening. My first time there but definitely not the last. Great value for money and awesome specials! The food was divine and the deserts to die for!

De Viswijf is located in a quiet corner in Jeffreys Bay which is unfortunately a bit industrial. The restaurant is charming with lots of wood and personal touches. A decent view of the bay from the deck which can be quite windy. Our waiter was...More

Beautiful venue with great views over the bay, especially watching the surfers catching the break. It’s a litte pretentious compared to some of the other places in j-bay, but the food was tasty, service good.

Pleasant atmosphere, good service and great food. The menu allows many personal options, and I could make up my own combination of different seafood, starch and vegetables.

Description
We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is triple story with the restaurant being on the 2nd story. It has 3 parts to the restaurant. The very fine dinning inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dinning, where you have a front and centre view of Jeffreys Bays breath taking ocean. Lastly we have the semi-undercover outside section. Where you can get that authentic ocean breeze air and soak up the sun or feel like you under the star while seeing the moon reflect over the water of the wild ocean.
