Great quality food & service with a fantastic beach and sea view. Arrived at 6:00 pm served meal at 6:30. Wife, myself & friend all had excellent food and service coupled with a beautiful view.

Good selection of food. I liked their version of surf and turf which had calamari instead of shrimp. Apparently calamari is local to their fishing industry.

We have been in South Africa for 10 days and this restaurant gave me a sleezy feel. Prices were ridiculous for South Africa where we never spent over $100 for a family of four (all over 21 and imbibing). Here abalone was R125 or approx $12.50 USD and a small langoustine was R110. What really set the evening in the... More

Your review refers. I take offence to your review and calling my restaurant "sleezy" and a "tourist trap" is uncalled for. I am confused as to why you are unhappy paying more than $100 when you order the most expensive items available. Abelone at R125 is expensive, it is however a market related price. You ordered a langoustine as it... More

My friend and i stopped off at Kitchen Windows for lunch - we both had the chicken livers and shared a foccacia. They were definitely the best chicken livers I've EVER had.

Ate at this place last week with some friends...Service was poor for the price they ask for their food!. And it took ages for the food to arrive...not sure why this is rated no1 in Jeffreys Bay!

This was our second visit and we found it just as enjoyable as the first. The food is well prepared and extremely tasty. They have a small but excellent wine list and the service is professional and relaxed. Jim, our waiter, enhanced our visit and made it very memorable.

One of our first restaurant meals in South Africa and I absolutely loved it! The setting is perfect and the staff were lovely. We even went back another day for lunch just for the view and the delicious calamari! Even saw some whales whilst sitting outside. A must for anyone visiting Jeffrey's Bay.
