We arrived here for our first lunch in South Africa after a long flight from the UK, and what a great place to eat! Lively and busy lunch time, but they managed to find us an outside table for the 4 of us and a baby chair, and soon welcoming first beers were being downed, looking over the fantastic beach... More

What a find. After the manic, mildly unpleasant mega touristy sub standard offerings on Mariners Wharf around the bay we left and found the Dunes. Great staff, lovely location, nice casual but classy ambience, very reasonable prices for both food and wine and the best fish & chips I have ever had in my life.

Busy place with a nice view. Couldn't seat us outside though, although there was space, they could do with some flexibility. Staff was swift, but not all that friendly, seemed a bit stressed out. Nachos were great by the way.

We had lunch at Dunes when we arrived in Hout Bay. It was a bit windy but the view and the burgers more than made up for it. The service was great. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful quick breakfast. Great coffee. The kids were very well entertained by the outdoor playground. Beautiful beach and mountain views.
