Great for sundowners

The food is rather good but the service is slow. Pizza is a good choice especially for those wanting a quick snack and a drink. This is the sister restaurant of the much bigger Grand and Beach situated just past the Granger Bay Hotel.

This place is fantastic. It's literally on the beach, and has a very modern feel to it. The food's great, and service and drinks also good. Nice area to eat in, and lovely surroundings

Located on its own private beach, overlooking Table Bay, this is a great place to go hang out and have some fun. Good for intimate dinners and large groups, the staff will look after your needs, maybe even anticipate them before you realise what you want!

This was a surprise! We stopped in for sundowners only but our waitron, Dean, so friendly without ever being pushy, convinced us to stay for a meal. Wow! Seafood is the obvious speciality but the fillet was exceptional too… and I consider myself a steak connoisseur. Together with the excellent wine, the view, the blanket when it got cool, impeccable... More

What a lovely venue with a view to die for right on the beach. Live music on a Sunday was great. We were treated to free cocktails and shared the afternoon with wonderful people. A friend suggested the seafood curry, I am not a seafood fan really, but he was very insistent. I am glad i listened it was AMAZING!... More

A great venue to take a break and enjoy the cool breeze off the Atlantic, the menu ranges from pizza's to more expensive seafood dishes, a wide range of drinks on offer but mostly the fact that you get to sit at a table with your feet in the sand looking out at the ocean is what makes this place...

This is one of those dining experiences you won't forget and will tell your friends. Situated away on its own this restaurant is in a large tin shed but the entrance hints at what is to come upon venturing inside - chandeliers, long ornate bar, unique lightening and festive atmosphere. The food is top quality from steaks to seafood and... More

We visited the Grand Cafe & Beach Restaurant for the first time and what a venue. SituTed right on the sea at Granger Bay, the entire venue has sea sand as the outside floor cover. Lots of umbrellas and tables under cover. The meter long pizzas were amazing, the beers cold and the service friendly and good. A stunning afternoon... More
