The food need to be balanced and toned down so that you can taste the various elements of the dish. Food was over powering and salty in general. Said that, if they give a little attention to detail and balance the flavour profile, the restaurant...has really potential.More

I recently visited your restaurant with 5 family members, “all foodies” and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The service was fantastic - friendly, knowledgeable and all round fantastic. The drinks were thoroughly enjoyable with all 3 ladies saying their cocktail was the best drink...they’ve ever had - one with Japanese Gin. Then the food...goodness me! Every dish was so tasty and packed with flavour. Portion sizes were generous and great value. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and are so thankful that a friend of ours posted an image of their visit to your restaurant so that we were able to discover the absolute treat that it is! Cant wait to returnMore

My first trip to CT since before lockdown...and my first visit to Hout Bay in years. BUT - this is simply a great venue. Waiters organised and attentive without being invasive. Food simply wonderful! Would certainly recommend to anyone.

I was blown away by the authenticity of the pacific rim experience at Cheyne's. Hubby and I were transported in ambiance and flavour back to South East Asia. The food was delicious, fresh and the nuances in flavour sublime. I want to commend both the...bartender and Chris our waiter on making our dining experience memorable for all the right reasons :) I was particularly impressed with the extensive vegetarian menu and stand out dishes were definitely the Deep Fried Milk and the Aubergine option. Hubby equally impressed with the Prawn "risotto" and lamb "dumplings" Go hungry if the Yum Cha experience is what you're after, I had to takeaway my dessert. Look forward to the next visit!More

Check it out, you will be surprised, Los Angeles in Hout bay, fresh and clean. This a pricy place for locals, but it is worth it on the $ & £. I suggest trying lots of starters ( as this is how I eat as...a chef)More

What a pleasure to be back eating from this delicious tapas style menu! it allows us to enjoy a variety of dishes (four in our case) all of which were taste sensations. We took 3 Capetonians who had never dined there before, and they were...blown away! Wish we were in Cape Town more often but we were so pleased to show off Hout Bay and its culinary excellence. Tuna tacos not on the list of dishes below but don’t miss it!!More

Really great food served in a fine array of small courses. Beautifully prepared,,presented and with excellent tastes and variety. Service extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. Great value for money. If placed in Surrey would blow every restaurant competitor out of the water! Just so different...in tastes and appearance and quality.More

Decent food let down by unbelievably slack service. Waited 20 mins for a waiter after being seated who never arrived. Ended up going to bar to get our own drinks. Waiter still never arrived so again went to bar to order food, but told couldn’t....Waited. Asked again at bar and after yet another wait, an illusive waiter arrived in the form of a clueless teenager. The evening went on like this and as we were there so long we were asked to move table as the next guests needed it. From the new table we could see why there was no service to our table. A nice little huddle of teenage staff (one in baseball cap) were all busy on their phones in a staff area. Even in full view of them, we couldn’t get their attention and the bill (overpriced in my opinion) took an absolute age to arrive and then again to pay. Thankfully we were in good company to find this so bad it was amusing...but we won’t be going back.More

5 star Aisan food, excellent service and vibe. This Hout Bay Gem should definitely be on the list of places to go for anyone visiting Cape Town. Bookings are essential. The new outdoor bar - Hiya - offers delicious cocktails and a tranquil setting.
