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 .

We recently celebrated my birthday with family and some friends at Papinos. We have been going there since our arrival 25 years ago and it is the same as it was then. The service was attentive, the wine list is long and reasonably priced and the food like home cooking. Thanks for a lovely evening.

We have been frequenting this restaurant since '99 & although it has changed hands the basic recipe remains the same.... we find it consistent with good very pleasant staff & great value.

Never been before but will eat here on the next visit to Hout Bay. Great value & excellent quality. The Pork steak was superb along with the Ostrich fillet. Used by a lot of locals and a great take away pizza place.

I am italian and had the worst overcooked amatriciana pasta, my wife had line fish which didn't taste fresh. We do not recommend pasta or linefish maybe you will have better luck with the pizzas. Riccardo
