Nice but could be better

Amazing drink specials and par bar food ilha is great for a 2 hr time sink if you looking for somewhere to have a quick drink. If you arent worried about sticky tables and beach sand its cool to meet up with mates and watch a game of rugga or two. The pizza and baskets are definately the... read more

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

Really bad breakfast- egg was cold and had clearly been standing a while. Toast was like a rock, shrivelled up tomato piece and 2 strips of leather supposedly the bacon. WE waited a long time for the food and my husband asked for a strong cappuchino, with an extra shot - it arrived , light brown and very milky! The... More

It is a small restaurant, at the lighthouse and almost on the beach. It is a bit scruffy, but the food is great and a place where the locals eat and drink. The price of the food is reasonable and their wine and beer selection not bad at all. Their calamari and chips is excellent. Especially the chips. This is... More

Living in the area this is one of my regular spots due to a really laid back approach to life. If you want fancy, stay away. If you want real people, good enough service, pretty damn good food, regular locals, dogs, friendly waiters, laid back lazy life approach, good setting and many more special offerings not normally associated with eating...

I went to have breakfast, thinking it would have to be good if one considers its location and proxsimily to the beach and the amount of surfers that must use it. I ordered bacon and eggs sunny side up with toast, and a pot of Rooibos tea. The tea arrived and I let it brew and then poured the black... More

Pretty good for breakfast, pizza and burgers good value for money and good service, close to Milnerton beach. Place is run down and scruffy really could do with a make over, smoking is not well segregated and is probably in breach of health regulations because of that. Certainly worth a visit.

We dropped in for breakfast a few times and I always liked it. Was tasty and good quality every time! It's directyl next to the Milnerton Golfclub and the beach. Park in front or walk along the beach as we always did. I took the "mega breakfast" and a mug of coffee. You should try it, a lot of locals... More

My wife and I live in the area, and have been popped in at Ilha, on quite a few occasions. We normally pop in on a Saturday morning, after our post breakfast walk on the beach, with our little one. There is a very relaxed atmosphere, and the service is good. The food is good, but I particularly enjoy their... More

Had two nice, well priced meals with friendly service. The beach a stone throw away so longs walks to Blouberg or towards Table Mountain.
