came here whilst staying in camps bay as it was recommended by fellow hotel guests and we were pleased we visited.
we had the foccacia followed by surf and turf and the quality of the food was excellent as was the service.
great portion sizes too. washed down with kahlua and ice cream cocktails- highly recommended.

Stopped for a glass of wine and sampled some of the best grilled calamari we have tasted in SA.
Great people watching and an all around fun place to stop.

This was a lovely restaurant, open fronted and slightly elevated, with views over the bay. We had fish both times, and our meals were excellent and good value. Service was really good. My wife had a small sheet of cellophane in her starter (the type that separates layers of smoked salmon, so an easy thing to overlook). We were not unduly worried, but did mention it, whereupon the waiter practically prostrated himself, refusing to let us pay for it and giving us a lovely complimentary dessert type drink at the end - no idea what it was, but delicious!

We would recommend this restaurant.

The food wasn’t fantastic the swordfish was dried out and not very tasty with no sauce. The seafood platter for one looked good.

It is very seldom that I will leave a restaurant without a tip, but in this case it was not difficult to make an exception. I failed to find a single redeeming feature when we visited and have no idea how this restaurant ranks as highly as it does. I opted for the lamb shank - the lamb was reasonably cooked, but was in an overpowering pepper sauce, the creamed spinach tasted burnt and the mash was worse than that prepared in boarding houses (inedible). My wife had the silver fish and calamari combo and left most of it on her plate. She did try to find out what exactly silver fish was before ordering and was simply told that it was very good - not in reality I am afraid.
The waiters had NO idea how to serve, placing breadbaskets from the wrong side, never attempting to fill glasses, in your face but without knowledge of their products - an absolute joke in my opinion and I own international restaurants so do have a sense of what is acceptable.
Based on our main course experience we didn't risk any attempt at desert and got out of there as quickly as possible never to return.
A sublime setting is not enough on a competitive waterfront.
