On a holiday in August we tried here on a couple of occasions. Tried the pizza and Belgian waffles. Lots of choice, excellent quality, freshly cooked and great value for money. Worth going in to try.

We'd already eaten at another restaurant, but could not resist getting take-aways. Next time we'll go hungry. Lovely delicacies, tea, gins, Indian food, and fudge to die for.

I love going to the Food Market to try the variety of food they have. If the truth be told, it is better than a lot of the over priced restaurants at the Waterfront, and less than half the price

Although small, it's a nice market where you can find good food, for reasonable prices and local stuff to buy

We are more of a street market then a neighborhood market. We have Chop Chop Steak Bar, where you can buy fresh meat for home use. Also Oysters from the Knysna Oysters.

Tough Question to answer, as I did not have any beer. The meals range in price depending on what you are looking to have. But to be safe I would say average meal would be between R50 - R70.
