Great food at a good price. Food service may be a little slow but the staff keep the beers rolling. Food basket special definitely a big winner. Been here many , many many , times and only been disappointed once. Madelien, Alec and Victor always very friendly.

Madeleine. Thank you so much for your friendly, welcome service! Chilli poppers with bacon and blue cheese.. brandy special and jagermeister. Your smile Madeleine ended our week on a high .. and you a proper sales lady. Wish more waiters "people in general" have your personality. Thank you will see you soon.

They were busy with renovations, so we cannot really judge them on the interior, but the service was very slow and the food average. I really expected more.

One gets two types of restaurant. 1 is the hole in wall and then you get touch above the rest. Ihala meets you in the middle. Best value and then the best ribs and calamari and chilli poppers in Cape Town. You might wait for serves but the food is fresh and top class. Well worth the visit.

We found the food and service to be of a suitable high standard. You don't have direct beach views, although the beach is only 50 meters away. But, it is mostly out of the Cape's scary South Easter and has a good vibe.

this is my local, I'm there weekly sometimes more. The service is crap. The food is well priced, nothing fancy sometimes not great. Its the perfect spot after the beach , very laid back, a bit scruffy with lots of regulars and their dogs.Somehow it all works

Went there for breakfast. They do an all-day one. There is a wide choice and all are reasonably priced. They serve good coffee. The service is friendly and the location is good.

Its a pretty laid back place so one doesn't expect rapid service and for our lunch it wasn't despite the restaurant being almost enpty. We ordered sparkling water to drink and after 15 minutes our waitress returned to say it was not available. I ordered omelette which was overcooked and chewy. My wife's chicken wrap was ok. Would not rush... More
