We got a nice table on the terrace with a gorgeous view over the bay. The seafood platter with lobster was the best we every have enjoyed. The Price was quite reasonable. The staff was friendly and attentive. We will return!

It is always a safe bet when in Hout Bay, convenient and safe parking, a cheerful welcome and attentive, but not too attentive staff with an unchanging menu of excellent food

We had a fish supper one evening, the service and food were OK and the restaurant is in a good location over the sea.

The oysters were fresh and the lobster abundant. It was a simple basic meal that met the mark at a reasonable price.
