We visited the SB following a recommendation from my husbands family who often go for the breakfast special. At R25 for a decent quality, good sized breakfast and coffee (which is replenished free upon request), you cannot fault the place as this represents exceptional value which, in my opinion, cannot be beaten anywhere else. Staff helpful and friendly, particularly Kirsty.... More

Prices were good but that's just about all. The waitress was clueless and my wife's order was clarified three times. The food was below average, my wife's meal was cold and visually and actually unappealing.

took my parents and niece and had a nice reasonably priced breakfast. The fresh chips were awesome. Nice setting, with sea views

My wife and I both had the lamb bunny chow and they were the best we have had for a very long time. The service was good and friendly, prices very reasonable and the setting is great looking out to sea.

If you're in the area and only going to eat out once, make sure that this is where you come. The restaurant boasts a large menu that is fairly priced and will cater to all tastes. There's a swimming pool, trampoline and games area that all the kids loved.

Went to the Sugar Baron for lunch. The order was taken and after half an hour i was told that the curry that i had ordered had run out and they would have more in the next half an hour if i wanted to wait. I had cold Jalepeno poppers and shared a cold Camembert fried cheese. Other tables were... More

This informal restaurant offers great food at even better prices. The drinks are cold and the view of the ocean in the distance - calming. The food menu is extensive enough to cater for most tastes and we have tried a lot of it. From snacks to burgers to bunny chows and T-Bone steaks, all was good. Can be recommended... More

Sugar Baron has a wonderful location - but like many other coastal restaurants, just doesn't have the correct energy and commitment to be amazing; which it really could be. Every dish on the menu should be great, but sadly not the case. Will try again another time - hoping to see improvement.

Used to be our favorite.....slow service and wrong orders brought to our table! Disheartening to see a table of 10 pax just walk out because of slow service from the wait staff!!!

We visited here while staying in the lodge during our holiday with the kids. The place was busy and almost full but we were welcomed and made comfortable right away. The menu has a bit of everything and we chose the Calamari and Hake respectively. Our kids food came when we were half way into our first drinks, our meals... More
