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

Gabriella's is well situated for shoppers and has over the past year or so improved enormously. There is a very varied menu ranging from sandwiches to full meals and the staff and both friendly and polite. Worth a visit.

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

As Llandudno locals, this is our favourite spot to stop for one or two cups of coffee if ever we find ourselves in Houtbay. Nowhere else in Cape Town are we served such delectable dry cappucinos with generous lashings of creamy foam and with such pleasant and friendly service to match.

First order: two boiled eggs on toast - this came as two poached eggs. Second order: French toast with a boiled egg on side, this came as poached egg. Third order: plain French toast came with cinnamon... More

Great for people-watching. Gabriella, owner, smiles and greets. Terrific service, friendly staff, nice ambience. Best calamari dish I've ever had!
