We are a group of 8 family members. The establishment looks out over Table Bay. Menu is predominantly seafood. It has a good selection. Our starters included oysters, calamari etc. Main courses included babotie, chicken strips, mezze platter, meraai se chicken pie etc. The food...is of a good quality, tasty and value for money. I found the dessert menu rather limited. Overall a great evening.More

We've been coming here for years for coffee and breakfasts. Its a stunning location on the beach. Just today we had a table and ordered breakfast. Place was packed. We waited 1hour 15 minutes for our food. It arrived cold and really unappetizing. The manager...was great and apologized. Not good enough guys. Get your act together. You can't just depend on the location. The food must be good and service reliable.More

This place gave almost all 9 of us food poisoning. The food actually smelled rotten. The manager came out to apologize said she smelled the food herself and it was bad. Eat with caution! Food poisoning can happen, but it doesn’t have to. Someone needs...to make sure they are using basic food safety standards. And the food itself was just ok.More

Ok this experience was really bad. The waiters were nice, but that’s all we can say that is positive. Mixed group of experienced travelers from the USA and Afrikaaner friends. The food that was edible was a mixed bag. None of it was up to...any sort of international standard. A couple of the meals were awful and one was clearly spoiled. The friend who received it was pregnant. After she said it was not good two of us smelled it and almost gagged. She wound up going to the restroom and throwing what she had eaten up. It was really unfortunate. They comped deserts and coffees, but even the malva pudding was bad - several days old and very dry. The location and setting are great but I only rated it two stars because the waiters were nice and very apologetic. The place should probably be shut down.More

The place is overrated Slow service, the food was not equal to the hype you hear about it. Roosterkoek and the location was the best part of my visit

Lovely, smokey flavour to a traditional favourite. We appreciated the friendly host/our server- I think his name is Du Toit? Thank you for your attentiveness!

Brilliant location and venue. Good menu. Good food. Parking always a challenge. Extremely busy depending on time of visit. One of Cape Towns must visit locations.

Having stayed in Bloubergstrand more than 20 years ago and having enjoyed some wonderful meals at Ons Huisie we popped back for some nostalgia. We had read that the restaurant wasn’t as good as it was back then so we just popped in for drinks....We ordered a couple of milkshakes and enjoyed these whilst sat in the sunshine. Our drinks were fine and service was good. However, the restaurant has, in my opinion, become more of a cafe than the quality dining it previously provided - sadly I don’t we will be back on our next visit to Cape Town.More

Ok thr cold and windy is the only thing they cannot control. For the rest neither potjie had thr promised prawns, the bobotie was dry and horrible, and the chips were disgusting. I still feel sick from it. As we walked to the car we...had to walk past the kitchen which had that acrid smell of old reused oil. Who knows when last it was changed. To think in its former glory this was an award winning restaurant.More

So many people suggested we go to Onse huisie for a meal, it was unarguably the worst meal we have had in a very long time. The meal took forever to arrive and when it did eventually arrive my meal was served with vegetables instead...of chips. They we were waiting on the chips we were told. I gave up eating my calamari, once again we had to ask for our chips which when they eventually arrived were revolting, old and smothered in oil. I think the plates of food that went out while we were waiting for our chips must have had the freshly made chips on them. Definitely won’t go back. The kind of meal that sticks in your memory for all th wrong reasonsMore
