“Aldo's Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

On Marco's recommendation (Sea Five Hotel) we visited this restaurant on our first night in Camp's Bay. Although it is situated away from the seafront it is obviously well known as there were lots of locals having dinner. The atmosphere was super and the food excellent. Thoroughly recommend it.

“Go where only the locals go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Ok, so you're in a beautiful city admiring the natural wonders of this amazing city and you want to go where the locals go for breakfast or lunch. This is the place to go then!
Fresh, airy, and clean, this restaurant has amazing food and superb service all at an exceptionally reasonable price.
Not only can you enjoy the food there, but they have food, jams, fruit, savoury dishes and cakes (try the fruit tarts which are to die for).
If you go there, you would be in the middle of three fantastic sites of Cape Town - Hout Bay, Camps Bay and Kirstenbosch.
Please go and write back to me how much you enjoyed it.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I usually go here for breakfast (scrambled eggs) or coffee, and always enjoy it. The service is usually very good too. You can order off the menu or there's a buffet (although that tends to be more pricey). There's also a good deal for a takeaway dinner for two: R100 for a bottle of wine, main course, "side" order like rice or veggies, and dessert. Love the amaretti cheesecake.
