Sometimes you do not get the choice to go back to a place, and so it was with On the Rocks where someone else booked. You know you are in trouble when you are on you second glass and there is still no food. Not...like they noticed. We did eventually get a desultory apology. Food, well you can eat it but this is the sort of place that sells you a risotto with peas and mussels with your fish and you can count the peas on the fingers of your hands and the mussels ... well there were two. But every one of them sure is premium.More

We enjoyed a very pleasant early lunch on the deck of this restaurant situated right on the beach overlooking Table Mountain. Good menu and wine list, friendly and quick service. Food was beautifully prepared and tasted even better than it looked. Highly recommendedMore

A long-standing favourite for both dinner and breakfast. Reception was courteous and COVID compliant. The interior is modern and uncluttered. This time we came for breakfast and were lucky to get the last table on the terrace. Service and food were good and well presented...and we have never been disappointed. The coffee was hot and had a great flavour. The only negative is that on a lovely morning it is difficult to get a table on the terrace as no reservations are taken there. You virtually sit on the rocks.More
