Having travelled extensively around the world, it’s hard to find a Restaurant with a perfect mix of Great Food, Great Location, Great Winelist, Great Service ad a Great Price. The De Viswijf manage to do all of that and much more!

We went back again, and again! Three times in one week and no disappointments. Fred’s knowledge of the wines, Nadine’s yummy dishes, their hospitality. I have never tasted such fresh and tender hake.

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

Description
We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is double story with the restaurant being on the first story. It has three parts to the restaurant. The fine dining inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dining, 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.
