There is something to be said for all the cars the line the street outside this historic homestead in Hout Bay - they must know something! We met up with family out from Australia last weekend and arrived at Kitima at 18h55 in time for our 19h00 reservation (for 7 of us). We received a very warm welcome from the... More

Have wanted to try this highly recommended Sunday Buffet for some time and made a reservation 3 weeks in advance. A few days prior I called to change the number of people and was told my booking had been cancelled. No-one knew why. Anyway ti was sorted out and we went on Sunday and were not disappointed. A marvellous selection... More

The food and the set up is awesome specially for a brunch during the weekend. So for quality of food and ambient I will say its outstanding. However, some of the staff were extremely rude with the fact that my friends had a 18 months babie. They were very rude and made my friends wife feel very uncomfortable while she... More

Our party of four plus our hosts for the next four days joined us at this 'cool' restaurant. What a place to go and enjoy and to be seen in - it appears to be the in-joint and the place to be!!! Fantastic colourful and vibrant atmosphere that makes you feel good just to be there. Full of 'happy clappy'... More

We were advised by our guest house owner to try to eat here. We were so glad we did we went twice. We blagged our way in the first time, booked the second. A fabulous restaurant with a central bar surrounded by dining rooms. Legend says it's haunted and the ghost has a set table in the lobby. Food -... More

After several tries we finally managed to book a table. Because of this and the number one rating on TA our expectations were high. Entering the restaurant we thought we were going to have the meal of our lives. Though the ambiance is very pleasant and the service also attentive. The food made the experience far from perfect. The only... More

Have visited this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. Once inside you will find It has been beautifully decorated and has different dining areas, which is great. Friendly, helpful staff and good service. The food is always tasty, hence the multiple visits. They don't have a children's menu as it is more of an adult vibe, however, my 6... More

We visited this restaurant on recommendation from the owner of our rented cottage. It did not disappoint. Everything about it was a delight. The best Asian style food ever. Booking is essential.

Don't be off put by the exterior, once inside this Old Cape Dutch building you will find that it has been tastefully converted into an opulent Asian restaurant. We had the Sunday buffet and it was simply amazing. The selection of food is impressive with chefs on hand to assist and explain the dish. The expression " Children in a... More

After battling to book a table, we had a date (the 18th of March) and were looking forward to another great night eating what I would call "authentic Thai food" in South Africa...... We were sadly disappointed, our dish "the angry beef" was not nearly as good as the last time, it lacked the Asian flavour I so loved and... More
