You won't be disappointed. Fantastic place and reflects the local flavour and atmosphere of Struisbaai. Stay away from 55 knots. The owner is rude and truly unhelpful. The Pelican and De Zuidste Kaap are the best

Service was ok. The view is out of this world. The food serviced was well presented and tasty. Please do something about the toilets, its disgusting. Don’t know how you get away with it. Don’t want to see what the kitchen looks like.

Bad service and unfriendly waiters. after 15 minutes of waiting for our drink order, my husband went to the bar to ask for our drinks and as soon as he entered the Bar, he overheard the waitress saying that we can ''wait'' for our drinks.
