Delicious Mexican cuisine on Christmas Eve!

We're glad we decided to celebrate Christmas eve at this restaurant. Mexican food as a substitute to traditional Swedish Christmas food turned out to be just fine. Actually this was our second visit to this Bistro, and that in itself is proof of good quality. We were the only guests this evening... read more

With regards to friendly staff this place takes the cake. It is lovely and quaint. The chicken wings (Deez knees) and frozen margaritas are to die for and you're made to feel welcome over and over again. The chili poppers are only for the brave. Brace yourself. :)

The food tastes good. You'll probably like it. The owners are nice. The decor is great. The margaritas are good. The reason we were disappointed was that the chips were very thick, and tasted a bit like cardboard. The nachos had broccoli, which is a crime against nature. We're biased, because we come from the states, and are used to... More

Tried this reaturant during an Eskom loadshedding. Supper by candle light. They were still able to produce great Mexican food running on gas only. The platter for two is great value and has nearly everything on the menu. The chillie poppers are super. The decor is basic and rustic and ads to a great atmosphere. The chicken wings are awsome....

Absolutely fabulous little gem of a spot. Max the chef made the best chicken wings I have ever encountered. I recommend Deez without a doubt in my mind.

A dear friend recommended this restaurant and we all loved it from the minute we walked in the door. The owner is very nice really makes you feel welcome! The ambience is just wonderful and the Deez Kneez (chicken wings) are the best I've ever had!! If you're in the Hout Bay are, you MUST go there!

The food unique and good. The staff and owner very much hands on and caring. Deon and Marinda mostly on duty but others also friendly. The story about DEEZ is the palate cleanser which is the shots of TEQUILA in between dishes.

The food and service was okay, and the setting quaint, but don't expect authentic Mexican food. Sure, there is plenty of chilli and flour tortillas, which to me are just "wraps", but no corn tortillas, for instance. I would go back there for the atmosphere.

If you are looking for proper mexican food then head to Deez. HOT chilli poppers, fab fajitas and the steaks are always made to perfection. Have dined here many times and have never had a bad experience. The staff are always warm and welcoming and the restaurant itself is very unique, with it's painted colourful walls and random artworks, it's... More

Having eaten here before, we took our visiting guests to Deez on Saturday night. As expected, they enjoyed the evening immensely, doing justice to the large jars of Margaritas and bottles of Corona beer. Sharing a platter for 3, even though there were 4 of us, was a good idea, as suggested by the owners themselves. Chilli poppers, tacos, enchiladas... More
