We have stayed at Boulders' Beach Lodge before about 5 years ago and remembered it as charming with the lovely beach and penguins very close......so close they are free to roam the lodge grounds. We also remembered it as needing a little renovation. We had no hesitation in staying there again however as it had been welcoming and comfortable with... More

There were a few thing that bothered me on my visit for lunch on 19/09/2014. Firstly, there was obviously no management judging by the music obviously selected by the wait staff. Also there was no management that came to greet us. Secondly, there were a few things that we asked for that were out of stock, including orange juice, one... More

Would not make a special trip but if you are in the area (i.e going to see the Penguins), it is a very nice relaxed place to have a meal. Had a late lunch. Mussells a little over-cooked but still tasty. Pasta and prawns v good. Seafood Thai dish v. good. All food was very well presented and good value... More

Excellent food, service and variety. Not expensive and huge portions. Enjoy the views as well. You will find some local sellers there as well and sometimes a group of singers.

The restaurant is nicely situated for a visit to the lower viewing sites for penguins – which are also less busy. Staff were friendly and helpful, including sorting out a good table with a view, and rolling down blinds to ward off the breeze. We went for the simpler fare, burgers, fish and chips – which arrived promptly and were... More

After spending the morning at Cape Point, Boulders Lodge in Simon's Town was the perfect place to stay over. We spent the afternoon exploring the quaint, seaside village before retiring to the lodge for some relaxation to the sound of the waves. We enjoyed an amazing 3-course dinner at the lodge and our room was comfortable. The next morning we... More

I had lunch in this restaurant as part of my cape peninsula tour and it was worth the visit. Food was nice, not very big portions, but good quality, service was fast, nice and friendly. The best part is really the view, beach front, great place to sit, enjoy a good wine and relax.

We are big fans of this restaurant, but the standards have definitely slipped over the last year. The staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere, but the food needs some work and the service needs a lot ! They were definitely understaffed on the last two occasions we have visited, so we will leave it off our list... More
