The staff are incredible attentive and helpful. Food is delicious with a broad wine selection. The lounge area has a beautiful fire place adding to the... More

This must be one of the most stunning and beautiful locations . From the minute the private mini bus picks you up at the entrance to the front door everything is stunning and professional . Unfortunately 8 of us had a very bad experience with our meal. The set menu which was very over priced was pretentious and quite frankly... More

Location: At the edge of Hout Bay below Chapmans Peak Drive, this is a stunning location for a restaurant. Try and get a booking about sunset. Food: The menu is carefully thought out and well executed. Menu is based on multiple courses with two choices for each course. Service: This is a very small resort with a few table restaurant...

This place is truly one of the gems of Cape Town! The view is breathtaking, the amenities are top class, the staff are fantastic and the good is to die for.
