First the positives: Good location, excellent oysters (probably because no chef intervention was required) Negatives: Rack of ribs was dry, overcooked, covered in a barbecue sauce that was dark brown and obviously overcooked. The malva pudding (a chef's recommendation) was dry and heated in the microwave until the edges were rock hard. Conclusion: A forgettable experience not to be repeated.

It will be hard to beat Ons Huisie for the view. It has a fantastic view of the beach. The setting is simple with plenty of outdoor seating. The service tend to be on the slow side. The food is good with a mostly traditional South African food menu. Great spot for breakfast or lunch.

We have been to Ons Huisie several times which should indicate our satisfaction! The pork ribs were really good and quite plentiful even for a voracious appetite. We also like the mixed canapés served in a basket. Really delicious and a treat with a nice complimenting wine. The location is superb right on the coast with fab sunsets.

We came here on advice from friends. Food was sub par, cold and undercooked. Service was slow, but the view is fantastic.

We always read TA before choosing a restaurant. But this time we were in Blouberg and friends said it's a goodish place to grab a quick late lunch. We came away with mixed feelings: Good stuff. Went on weekend and place was busy. Plenty staff and service was spot-on. Menu quite varied and food prices reasonable although beer/drinks are on... More

I live in the area so have visited Ons Huisie on a few occasions. What keeps me returning is not the food, nor the service, but the lovely venue and relaxed atmosphere. It's a great place to take kids. As has been stated in countless reviews, the service leaves a lot to be desired. The food is somewhat bland, but... More

Seems to be popular at lunchtime. Near the sea, but the view is spoilt somewhat by the car park. I had the chicken salad - very reasonable at R50. The service was slow (and our waiter smiley but not quite with it).
