Kitima in Hout Bay is truly an amazing experience. Whether you go there for a quick snack and sit outside or have a meal in the formal restaurant, I can guarantee you will have a great time. The menu is broad and caters for a variety of tastes and the wine collection is one to be proud of.

A very nice venue seating lay out excellent. Staff friendly and even the car guard has a smile on his face. Variety on the cocktails are huge and well explained. Menu nice caters for everyone's needs. If you cannot find something on that menu then there is definitely something wrong with you.

At 220R pp this superb restaurant produces the most amazing array of dishes on their Sunday buffet. The never ending selection of dim sum, sushi, chicken satay, duck spring rolls to name a few of the starters that you help yourself to got everyone off to a good start. The clearing of plates is slick, enabling you to go back... More
