The staff was super kind and efficient, just a pity they did not had oysters that day.
But the food was very good, well cooked and with a nice presentation.
The views are absolutely stunning, specially at sunset.
The price was quite reasonable.

The food is really good - maybe not quite good enough to be 5* but very good. Lovely tuna, good fish and chips, beefburgers etc. Superb view at low level over Lookout Beach, which differs depending on the tides but can be shallow lagoons or expanse of sandy beach. I particularly enjoy LookOut Deck for lunch but also good in the evening.

We spent the morning on the nearby Lookout beach which was fabulous. The restaurant overllos the beach and the sweeping panorama of the Keurbooms river delat all the way to Keurboomstrand with the mountains as a backdrop.

You can't book here and, I can imagine, in high season you would struggle to get a table so popular is this restaurant.

We ordered klinklip fish and I had a blue cheese salad which was wonderfully fresh and there was a lot of it. The food was excellent and great value though the staff weren't as friendly as elsewhere and the food took a long time to arrive. I have to see that this seems to be the case throughout South Africa but I would prefer it to fast food any day of the week.

So - great food, wonderful location and views, good prices but no so friendly staff. Having said that it was very busy so it isn't always easy to be outgoing under stress.

You will love this place - note parking nearby is a bit limited
