Dunes has a beautiful view over Hout Bay Beach - any closer and you would be on the beach itself.
It's a large restaurant with most of the seating outside which is great at any time of the year unless it's raining. The South Easter can be a bit bothersome when it is really blowing a gale in summer but it does cool things down so we found it rather pleasant having a breeze blowing.
Service was a tad slow - however, the waitress did mention that some of the staff had not turned up (perhaps they already had the Christmas spirit?)
We were not in a hurry so it was pleasant sitting relaxing with the view of the ocean.
The place gets very busy and a number of tables were turned whilst we were there.
We all enjoyed our seafood/line fish very much - there are other items on the menu such as burgers and pizzas etc.
We had not booked so were lucky to get a table. If you don't like sitting outside, it would be best to book as the inside space is limited.
One suggestion - please clean the toilets more regularly - I found these below standard for a good restaurant. Maybe an upgrade?
An enjoyable spot!
