The food was good and we got a table, despite not having a reservation. The owner explained that dye to the red tide the locals can no longer catch lobster but we enjoyed the mussels and prawns. Will go again.

What a little gem this is. The staff are all super friendly and go out of their way to make you comfortable. The food was fresh, tasty and ample servings. Also not expensive. On our two occasions the maitre d was such a pleasant, helpful...young lady which made the experience even more memorable. We went twice in our 2 days in Lamberts Bay: that must say something.More

From stepping inside to leaving we had a great time and great food. The staff were attentive and friendly. All the dishes that came past looked amazing. The seafood platter for one can be recommended for a good variety. Well prepared and tasted great. The...prawns were not overcooked as per a previous review.More

Some food was not good standard. Lacking in flavour. Service - Manager didn't acknowledge us once, not good. The waitress gave undecided attention as far as possible and attended to our needs. However when issues arrose with the food the manager sent a message to...the table and didn't come to speak to the table. He did however speak to all other tables present with other patrons, only wonder if it was because of their ethnicity. Nonetheless because of this I will not return and raged this visit a 2 1/2 the food could have been better. Catch of the day was however excellent.More

This was the alternative as the Lamberts Bay Hotel restaurant was not open for lunch or dinner. Our first meal was a "take away" from this restaurant which was pretty good. The restaurant service was good and the staff friendly. Their meals are mainly sea...food, quite good, but like so many restaurants they tend to over cook prawns. Their fish dishes were generally good, but not outstanding. Wine list was adequate with some very good dry white wines.More

I'm not big on fish, but enjoy a bit of calamari and prawns from time to time. Last night I had the Seafood Platter for One and I enjoyed everything on my plate. My husband had their award winning hake, which was huge and very...tasty. We went back for breakfast this morning and once again enjoyed our meals. On both occasions the service was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient.More

A unusual stop to Lamberts Bay on our Namakwaland Tour, resulted in a lunch appointment at Isabellas. The view, the offering, the staff and the hosts were all amazing and did not disappoint. Fresh fish, great chips and a lovely chocolate cake were on the...menu. Thumbs up to the leadership team who’ve issued back packs to their entire team, so Isabella’s is advertised as the team walk home between shifts. Also, top notch seeing the different shifts working at the restaurant and keeping as many local inhabitants employed as possible.More

On a recent trip to Citrusdal, the mercury cranked up to a Dante-esque 44C, and so I suggested to my wife that we couldn't just sit in our air-conditioned hotel room and wait for the hell outide to cool off. Lambert's Bay was the decided...on day trip destination. I made a booking and we fired up the Mini and aircon at full-blast and hit the tarmac. The 114km trip to Lambert's Bay went by pretty quickly through quaint little towns. Upon arrival, the restaurant was heaving and I prayed they'd remembered these two out-of-towners and kept our table. Relief washed over me like an icy bottle of sauvignon blanc when we were led through. It was lovely to see the local Lambert's Bay economy was pumping. We ordered a Greek salad, a bottle of Van Loveren Red and a bottle of Klawer white, two mains - one hake and calamari combo and one kabeljou and calamari combo. The meal was delicious, the fish fresher than big game marlin reeled in by Hemingway; the staff were charming. Special mention goes out to the manager FRANCO who is a proper asset to the operation and a good sport who helped with an ad-lib unscripted fine acting performance for a home video. Five stars on all levels. I'd even do the three hour drive there for lunch from where I stay in Cape Town - becuase it's that good.More
