We had an alfresco lunch here, with some good Cape Tonian friends. And old restaurant with amazing history, old historic Photos on the walls, almost like a mini museum. We sat outside, in the sun, along with some seagulls, and enjoyed a great lunchtime meal, served by very sweet staff. If in the area worth a visit.

Enjoyed a great breakfast with a stunning view over the sea. The breakfast menu is extensive but yet not over the top. Good sizeable portions as well.

This well-known restaurant is in a beautiful old Cape Dutch style house overlooking the ocean and offers a great location for sundowners followed by a no-frills dinner. They don't take bookings for the outside seating overlooking the ocean, but you can book for dinner inside. The menu was simple and offered some firm South African favourites like "Souskluitjies" for dessert, although I must be honest that I've had better at home. They messed up our booking a bit and wanted to move us to a different table after we sat down and settled in, so we refused. Service was satisfactory otherwise.

Old traditional Afrikaans building right on the coast at Bloubergstrand. Good food - especially the seafood. Atmospheric place to eat.
