“Great Owner... Great Vibe... Great Drinks... Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I think that the title puts it into perspective?
The owner was a wonderful person to meet. He has a real passion for people and service.
The vibe that we experienced at his establishment was out of this world.
Drinks go down well when you have the above.

The food was good, not excellent... just good.

“best meal I had in south africa - fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Possibly the best meal I have ever had. My husband and I visited The Table for dinner on Wednesday 2nd October. I had corresponded by email with Chris the owner in advance to ask which cheese’s are vegetarian friendly, and he had been prompt and extremely helpful in his response. For starter I had the Halloumi and basil bruschetta and it was the best starter I have had anywhere. For main course I had a pizza with goats cheese, roasted peppers, spinach, caramelised onions and sundried tomatoes – it was the best pizza I’ve ever had – and their wood-burning pizza oven is huge! My husband had tuna for his main, Japanese style in sesame seeds and he also thought it was the best main course he ever had. The restaurant has a real family vibe about it (there were quite a few families there with young kids) – its quite a casual place in terms of no reservations etc, yet it is crisp and clean and welcoming too with plenty of seating inside and out. It was good value for money, the staff were excellent and I strongly recommend dining there if you are in Plet Bay.

“Very good Ostrich fillet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The restaurant is set in the main street on P. Bay, nice staff and very good food. For the first time in our life we ate the ostrich fillet and we enjoyed it alot! We went saturday night during the winter and the restaurant was very full so, if you go during the summer, I think is better to make a reservation!

“Good food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Wonderful pizza & pasta. We ate fairly early so managed to get a table easily. Long tables and benches which may no suit everyone.
