We treated ourselves to a lunch at Cafe Gannet. It has beautiful views of the ocean and if you're staying at the Protea Hotel, you can dip into the pool and have access to the restaurant. Staff were great - food was AMAZING. I had the steak and some really excellent wine!

The lobby with the large fire place is very nice to first have a nice glass of wine. We had to eat inside because it was too cold too eat outside on the beautiful terrace. The food was nice and the sushi is definitely worth trying.

We always like their Sunday lunch set menu. You wait maybe a little, but it's a 3 course menu, served with taste and style.

Relax in this fab restaurant, inside ,outside or at the bar overlooking the ocean. Stunning food and views. If in a group, do not book a large table if it is an Ala Carte Menu, rather be seated at several tables. This will allow you to be served faster. But the food is well waiting fot

Classy vibes, a good spot to unwind after visiting the fascinating museum complex and post tree next door. We ordered some pretty standard food and we got some pretty standard meals, nothing super special but certainly passable. Would recommend you try some of their speciality dishes. Some of the specials of the day suggested they are making an effort to... More

Excellent welcome, always important, and that is exactly what we received. The waiter was professional and has excellent skills. I am very passionate about customer service, and I was impressed with the delivery.

On holiday from Scotland and found this excellent restaurant that offered a wide variety of seafood and other South African dishes. The staff, ambience and service all contributed to a very enjoyable dining experience. Easy and free parking.

Had Sunday lunch there. The food was great as well as the service (Kurt), although he disappeared for a while and we sat with plates in front of us for about 20 minutes. They did give us a free dessert for the wait though. Puddings could be more imaginative.
