Delicious food, friendly service and the best seafood in the West Coast. Not your average prawns - a decent queensize prawn with lots of flavour. Cosy atmosphere with a fireplace.

The food at De Palm is always well prepared and served with a smile. Thankfully for me they understand about Gluten and MSG allergies and it is one place I can safely order a meal and eat without a worry and that is very rare...for me. Thank you to the attentive and friendly staff, manager and owners. You rock.More

We visited De Palm for our 21st wedding anniversary. The staff made our evening very special. Food is wonderful and fresh and the people made us feel like family. A must visit when you are in St Helena Bay.

We chanced upon this warm, welcoming restaurant purely by accident while looking for accommodation as we were passing thru the area. The management & staff were unbelievable helpful. Due to it being a weekend during the 'flower' season, we were unable to find any accommodation...nearby for the 5 of us, and upon enquiring at the restaurant whether they might know of any available accommodation, Joan started calling around to multiple establishments on our behalf. This, even though we had not even ordered anything to consume at the restaurant since we had just had dinner a bit earlier. We were completely blown away by Joan & her team's amazing hospitality & helpfulness. They went out of their way to assist us in finding accommodation, using their phones without us even asking them to. We eventually ordered some coffee while waiting. And we were not disappointed - the coffee we as excellent as the service! What an awesome, genuinely friendly & helpful bunch of people. Thanks Joan & team, you guys are a valuable asset to St. Helena Bay!More

Arrived without reservation but no problem, Promptly seated and given menu with a lot of variety all at reasonable cost. Chose sirloin steak which was great-cooked medium to well with mushroom sauce. Followed by malva pudding with custard and ice cream. All of this for...just 400 rand for 2 persons.Service was very good and restaurant clean and very respectful. Worth a visit.More
