We are locals and thought we would have a nice quick, quiet snack as it is very busy here in Hout Bay in December. I ordered a rear burger, and my wife ordered Eggs Benedict. My Burger arrived and was well done, I was half way through my burger, when we had to remind the waiters who were all sitting... More

Met a friend there for lunch the other day and we both ordered pasta off the menu. The waitress came back a few minutes later to tell us there was no pasta available for lunch that day. This was 1pm on a Friday. Surely this is something you tell customers when you give them the menus. I had read the... More

If you are looking for somewhere to go in Hout Bay during the day for a lovely lunch, this is the place to go. Staff very friendly and the food is well priced and tasty. Its a wee bit out the way at rear of shopping precinct but worth a visit.

When visiting Hout Bay you will likely visit the Mainstream shopping area & this restaurant is tucked away at the rear area near Woolworths main entrance. It is a favourite with locals & we revisited recently & found the food great value & the staff very friendly. We like plain black Coffee but with good coffee flavours not that watered... More

As a recent visitor to Hout Bay I was keen to try Gabriella's. The coffee was excellent but I was put off eating at the venue by the 'smokers' sitting at outside tables next to the car park. Even though they are not in the main inside area the smoke does waft through, and I am sure non-smokers woud enjoy... More
