“Decent place in a great location”
Reviewed 17 April 2017

Had a late breakfast here on the Easter weekend - they serve breakfast (a good selection) until 11.30 am.
Four of us enjoyed a full breakfast, omelettes and eggs Benedict. With flat whites and capuccino. Cost = R400 (including 10% tip).
Service articulate and friendly. They asked what toast we wanted but then failed to actually deliver it. They did offer to bring it after we mentioned it at payment stage, but we felt it was too late at the end of the meal.
Enjoyed the location with views over the yacht harbour, but did not enjoy the tourist with his cell phone on speaker phone such that the entire restaurant could hear his conversation. The restaurant staff could've done something about this.
In spite of these small gripes we would come back again and would recommend.

“Amazing food and service, pity manager criticized staff in front of guests”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 via mobile

Found this restaurant earlier today and was delighted with the friendly, chirpy staff and amazing food! We were lucky to secure an outside table with a fabulous view which made our meal a pleasure. Unfortunately a manager or owner decided to verbally reprimand his staff in earshot and full view of the restaurant guests.... unfortunate reflection on him more than anyone else...best done in private in future. Fabulous waiting staff and food, couldn't fault them!

“The place to get burgers in Simon's Town!”
Reviewed 13 April 2017

If you are very hungry and you love burgers, and you don't mind paying R90+ for a burger plus great-tasting chips in a tin can then head on over to Saveur. Pair this with a local craft beer as you look out over the harbor - it will be extra memorable.

“An informal little gem ”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 via mobile

Today we were driving to Cape Point; en route we stopped in Simons Town for lunch. We sat overlooking the water tucked away from the wind. The staff are all remarkably friendly and efficient. The tuna from the specials board was a picture and well cooked. The platter of olives, hummus and artichokes was also wonderful. Worth stopping off for!
