Nice place, excellent food

Maybe Boulders Beach is the best restaurant in Simon's Town. Friendly waiters and very nice dishes. Especially fish!

Pleasant setting but the food is rather average and I expected better quality given the price. I think the food in general is over priced. Beautiful sea view but the food really could be better.

It is one of the restaurants that relies on tourists and therefore has a "one off" clientele. The setting is great, just above the famous Boulders Beach, but the lodge needs sprucing up, especially the garden, weeds grow out of the paving and the meals are nothing to rave about.

We simply loved the food and ended up eating 4 dinners in row at this restaurant. Everything we ate was deliciously made. Our favourites - calamari strips and sea food pasta. And the desserts - simply divine! Don't miss eating here.

We stop at the lodge for dinner and had a fabulous night. Menu was great with something for everyone in the family. Highly recommend the seafood curry. Service was friendly. We will be back!

First stop for breakfast before heading down to Boulders Beach for day. Friendly staff. Peaceful, scenic setting. Just had scrambled eggs, toast and tea.

This restaurant has lovely views but the quality of the food is poor. My meal of fish & chips was boring and bland ,the piece of fish was small and not fresh so very disappointing -we will not be back !!

It was nothing wrong really, staff was nice, food was ok, penguins passing by outside on the parking. But there were no fireworks, just plain average. Very good location though, and I must stress, it was nothing wrong at all. It just didn't have that little extra (except the view).

We were guests at the lodge and were relieved to know we didn't have go elsewhere for dinner. We chose a table on the veranda with a nice view of the ocean. I ordered the seafood platter and and my daughter had seafood curry. Both had combinations of fresh local squid, fish & crab, along with shrimp the owner imports... More
