“Good food with an amazing view. Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

An obvious choice when visiting De Kelders, which is no longer the best kept secret of the Overberg. Best whale watching while relaxing and enjoying a delicious cake and coffee, followed by a lovely lunch. The best is....the cakes are fresh and all baked there. Service friendly and efficient

“Coffee & Cake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I went for coffee and cake and really enjoy it. The staff were friendly and quick. You have a beautifull view over the sea and rocks. Very relaxing.

“Can't beat the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

A great spot for coffee and a bite to eat, especially as a stop off while on the cliff walk. Check the hours to avoid disappointment.

“Fantastic view, refreshingly different decor, but average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

One of the best views in the area and a lovely alternative approach to decor. Limited menu and average food. We felt more like intruders. Yes, we arrived without a reservation after calls and emails were unanswered. Right through our meal there was enough space around us, but the maitre'd made us feel like intruders, promised to go and check if a table is available, but never returned. Eventually one of the waiters took our order and served us food at one of the two empty tables on the balcony. The lady cleaning tables put crockery, salt and paper shakers, etc. down within an inch of breaking it and clearly wanted to be somewhere else. Our own waiter (who served us "illegaly" i suppose) was very friendly. The food was average.
