Dixie's has always been a favourite restaurant of mine on our annual visit to ZA. It's always been good but is now back to being very good now that Malinda has returned. This restaurant is not the Ritz and doesn't pretend to be. It is a very comfortable place with good food and relaxed atmosphere. We did have reason to bring something we didn't like to Malindas' attention and it was sorted out immediately, professionaly and without fuss. Well done, we look forward to seeing you next November.

Being local residents of Simon’s Town, we are now once a week trying to discover the best breakfast available in the district. So far, Dixies has settled to the bottom. Yes it’s in a good location overlooking False Bay but it isn’t that hard to make a breakfast better than I could (or so I thought).

I ordered the Large Breakfast “2 Eggs, bacon, tomato, sausage, toast & preserves, orange juice and coffee.” Eggs were sunny side up, at least one of them was. And no tomato despite indicated as part of the meal… and presentation was poor. Not good, pricey and very disappointing. And there are far better breakfast options in the district

We had mixed feelings about the food, Sirlon was over cooked and tough, Fillets were great and correct. Starters and deserts were great.
Service has a lots of room for improvement, waited 1 hour for mains.

Very popular on a Saturday night but were shown to a table straight away. Good menu with lots of choice and efficient service.

A great place for lunch or dinner, or to spend time with friends. Dixies is consistent in delivering good food at a reasonable price, but not for the fine diner! Order anything on the menu and enjoy the beautiful views. An honest offering backed by an experienced group of waiters. The restaurant is old school and desperate for an interior revamp, but we hope they keep it just the way it is!
