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.

Good Food, Great prices. Was presented in a very nice way. Beer and wine is available. A short walk to see the JackAss Penquings.

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

We stayed here for one night so that we could spend time with the penguins. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and we had the bonus of our own 'personal' penguin who was sitting on two eggs just by our room door! The staff were friendly and helpfull and the restaurant met all our expectations. From the lodge it... More

New Years Day and off to Boulders with a group of friends for breakfast. The location is nothing to write home about, with no view of the beach and once you have seen one car park you have seen them all. The place was not that busy but the food took an eternity to arrive. The food was not too... More

I can't attest to the quality of the seafood because I ordered the vegetarian open-faced sandwich. Service was fast and friendly and the food was really good! I wasn't expecting much from the place because it has a coveted location and good get away with less, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Went there twice. The first time was in January 2012 when we had a great time and we really loved the food (so much that we advised others to visit). So we decided to go for a second time in January 2014. This time the food was terrible. We all had seafood. One of us had the "fish of the... More

We went there based on recommendation of tripadvisor, and it was a real disappointment. We ordered the seafood platter. Except the oysters, it was terrible : fish and prawns were not only overcooked but flavorless and calamari were of no interest... If you are looking for restaurant in Simon's Town, just go to the center on the main road (Lighthouse... More
