“Get the Kingclip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Some of the best fish and chips we've ever had. The kingclip though was a revelation. Perfectly cooked, white fleshed, and almost sweet. Bring a bottle of wine and sit outside...a perfect "beachy" lunch experience.

“Tasty and Fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The cook the best fish and it is very fresh. The portion is big too and value for money. It was located at the waterfront and the view is great as well

“Great lunch spot in the center of a very scenic town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for lunch in Simon's Town on the way to visit the penguin colony at the Boulders. The town itself was a very scenic spot with interesting
Architecture from the early 20th century. The restaurant had large portions of well cooked varieties of fish such as hake, kingklip and snook. The prices were reasonable and the service was very good. It is a simple place with outdoor and indoor seating and well worth a stop. Their slogan is If you don't eat here we will both starve.

“Great fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Kingklip fish and chips was the best lunch in a long time. Maybe we were very hungry after our trip to Cape Point and The Cape of Good Hope but even so, the food was great. And the staff were friendly too.

“Best place to grab fish and chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We wanted to grab a quick bite to eat after a shark diving tour in Simon's Town, and Salty Sea Dog turned out to be the perfect spot for us. They serve a variety of fish, chicken and other seafood. The service is very quick and the food was delicious. It was some of the best fish and chips I've ever had!
