Best take away pizzas

Thursday night pizzas have become a bit of a ritual. Their Roequefort pizza is delicious! I personally prefer their take aways than dining in the restaurant itself.

We recently enjoyed their stunning soft calamari starter followed by a scrumptious pizza and ended with their mouth watering creme brule...will definitely be visiting them again

We headed to Papinos during an unexpected loadshedding last night and it was great! Food came quickly, the waitresses were helpful even though it was obvious that they were under major stress as the restaurant was packed! The pizza was fabulous (I recommend the West Coast Pizza)! We were in and out of their within an hour so we were... More

When the Restaurant that you select to have dinner is opening at 17:30 and you arrive at 21:00 for dinner on a Saturday evening and you are told that the Kitchen is closed I wonder why even bother to open. Either they are too rich and don't need the business or someone is making some funny decisions about closing times.... More

Tucked away of the main street this is a lovely restaurant with a varied menu. We ate steaks in various sauces which were all delicious and cooked as requested. This venue is regularly frequented by locals so you tell it is consistently good. Friendly and knowledgeable staff

We spent five days in Hout Bay and found this place as a coincidence (and encouraged by a recommendation of a local sitting outside the restaurant). We had great pizza´s, nice salad and delicious steaks, not to mention the dessert drink Springbok. Don´t blame us having no imagination and interest to look for another restaurant, but we had to come... More

What a lovely find, homely comforting ambiance...attentive friendly service...and the food was generously portioned, flavourful and delicious. We were a party of five and not one of us could find anything remotely negative to say. Well done and we will definitely be back .
