We were out walking and came across the Boulders Beach Restaurant. It was just a few minutes after 8 and they had just opened. We sat at a lovely table on the covered stoep and both ordered omelettes and toast. The menu promised "whisked" egg omelettes and we were both pleasantly surprised by the fluffiness of the omelettes, as well... More

This was a lunchtime visit and my wife and I both had fish platters. The food was fabulous, as was the service and all for a very good price.

Went to the Penguin breeding colony and sanctuary. Found this establishment and only had some Ehlinger Weiss bier and wife had a cappuchino. Prices on menu looked reasonable and food served to patrons around us appeared to be good portions and well presented.

Just a few meters from Boulders Beach entrance lies this unpretentious hotel and restaurant. We had a quick lunch there just before going to the beach and were very happy with it. It's not THE eating place in the Cape Peninsula, but if you're around and hunger takes over, it's a good place to stop.

The menu selection had some interesting twists to it. Oriental breakfast choice on the menu was OK. The regular selection of breakfasts were well presented with a good service level to support.

Coming from the UK we are used to cafes and restaurants near tourist attractions being a rip off. This place sells good food at reasonable prices and you get a sea view whilst you eat if you stay outside. Try the burger its lovely

Found this restaurant a little by accident when searching for penguin colony. How pleased we were. Nice food and a great view from the first floor deck over the bay. Then walk off the excellent food on the stroll to the penguin colony. The entrance to the colony is so near that they share a car park and you can... More

Boulders Beach Restaurant is a very nice restaurant with a beautiful view on the sea. Several times we stopped there for breakfast and that was very good.

Dec 30 lunch: This restaurant is part of the lodge but being the only place nearby, we had lunch here after checking in. The service was very slow. Getting our beers was actually a task with the servers taking time to tell us avaialble beers and then actually getting the beers. The food was quite decent. The spring rolls were... More
