Location is great (right on the beach etc.), but we found the Stoep to be over-rated. Food was good (no complaints at all and we had a good meal) but there is a fair amount of hype around the restaurant being brilliant, which is probably OTT and our expectations didn't match what we had heard. To be clear, we had... More

I agree with other reviewers. The potential for this place is very high. Unfortunately they never, ever have enough staff. We asked for our drinks at least five times before they came. The food was average and we had to ask for knives and forks and for our table to be cleared. The location is perfect, the restaurant could be... More

This is our second visit to the Stoep. Our family who live in Hong Kong love it because it is right on the beach and the children love that. The food is OK, nothing startling or special and reasonably priced. If you want to sit comfortably, eat and have access to the beach, this is perfect. Saying that, others there... More

I've noted a lot of people complain about various things here, but a restaurant on the beach anywhere has got to have some good points. On the day we were there (our second visit) we had a relaxed and enjoyable day and were very well treated by the staff. They looked after us and our two duaghters with a smile... More

We had been wanting to try this restaurant for years and were so disappointed with the food. We got bread and dips and burgers for the kids. The burgers were ok but nothing special or great, especially considering they were adult meals and not kids. The bread was stale and warmed in a microwave. We asked for the bread to... More

We had a great afternoon on the stoep! The service was good and the food outstanding. The braaivleis (bbq meat) was very traditional South African. Try the mixed plate with boerewors, lamb and steak with scalloped potatoes! The bobotie and yellow rice was perfection. Highly recommended. The malva desert was the best I had outside of SA and tipsy tart... More

Consistent with other reviews I have read, this restaurant doesn't operate so well when they are busy. We have been before during the day but this time we went on a Saturday night, around 6pm. They were readying themselves for a function (meaning a buffet for a number of people), and the person in charge was shouting at her staff,... More

Nestling right on the beach this one was worth finding. The menu may not be the most exciting, but the quality is good. Our group of five were satisfied with our order. I personally had the steak with was excellent, very tasty. However it came with scalloped potatoes and a salad that looked like it had been prepared much earlier.... More

Excellent local and South African menu. Good beach location, fine wine list, easy access by taxi and ferry from Hong Kong. Lifeguard and full facilities on beach. Feral cattle and water buffalo add to the scene!
