You may not get white linen table cloths and sparkling silver at Driftwoods, but you'll definitely get the warmest welcome, exquisite views of the Langebaan lagoon and fantastic service from well-trained and friendly waiters. Topping it off is great food. We enjoyed the generous portion of tasty mussels so much on our first visit there, we came back the next... More

Lovely view of the windsurfers on the beach, but apart from our very sweet waiter that was probably the best thing about the restaurant. I had an ok chicken salad but the rest of the party had food that really wasn't appetising. Our waiter was lovely and friendly and helpful and had a great smile. The poor food wasn't his... More

Typical oily cafe food at Restaurant prices. No craft beer on offer. With just a little more effort this place could be great. Great view. Great location. By the food is a real let down. Would skip next time around.

This restaurant is now no more! Don't waste your time. Walk straight past this place towards Pearly's. The service may be acceptable to the average European Tourist, but definitely NOT, up to the South African Hospitality Standards! The staff are arrogant and the Management equally useless! Not worth spending your money here!

We went to Driftwoods for lunch and dinner and weren't disappointed. Driftwood's has friendly service, good food and a nice & relaxed atmosphere. Just the thing you are looking for when on holiday.

They must have had a real bad day in the kitchen; the ribs, burger and hake/calamari were awful. Good vibe though and a reasonable service.

It was a Tuesday night, Sushi Special night, Restaurant wasn't even half full. Still our people of 5 had to wait a hour and a half to receive our orders. Afterwards we asked the Manager on duty why is it taking so long? Her reply: "We work on a first in first out bases" , that was her answer after... More
