Located right in front of the bay, Burgundy has the perfect combination of awesome view, great service and succulent food. We were concerned it would be a tourist trap, we kept going there again and again (hence the title of this review). Everything is good, from desserts to main courses to wines. An institution where you can spend many hours... More

This is a lovely restaurant to have lunch and watch the whales. You definitely want to sit outside, (although it is cold they give you blankets so you soon warm up) but it is worth it as you see so many whales out in the ocean whilst you are sitting there. The food is also good-the toasted sandwiches were lovely... More

You can not get a better location than the Burgundy. You can sit outside under big trees, sip a cocktail and do some Whale watching at the same time The food is very good. I had the Bobotie springrolls that was crispy and extremely tasty while my husband had the fish cakes that was not ordinary fishcakes- beautiful and delicious... More

nice ambience but we probably chose poorly from the menu and felt very full after the local babotie dish. Service was rather hasty despite not being very busy.

The Bottom Line: Great for groups and for couples. The food is very well seasoned with excellent attention to detail - the bread is a really special treat. You'll want to eat it all.

Visited the restaurant for lunch yesterday and had an amazing time. Service was great and staff very attentive. Management is also very visable on the floor and interacting with guests. Food was delicious and portions are VERY generous! Best muscles I have had in a long time.
