Best pizza we’ve had in a long time, great service and choices on toppings. Crust so thin wood fired to cheesy perfection

Our food arrived about 10 minutes apart - I'd basically finished mine by the time my partner's food arrived. The variety of food wasn't that great and the calamari wasn't good. The malva pudding and chicken salad were divine, though, and the waiter was friendly.

They deserve a 5-star rating! Excellent service, good wine and pasta so good we thought that they made their own. My partner had a pizza that he also enjoyed.

The pizza’s here in Simons Town are absolutely wonderful, I love the vegan pizza with the spices and the avocado although the place looks like an old German café (lots of renovation needed) the pizza is actually very good, and the staff is very helpful...indeed. It’s on the strip so it’s hard not to see it.More

the live music and friendly staff help to make this old Simonstown favourite endearing, however we feel that the menu and decor could do with a refresh.

Dropped in for a late lunch with 2 busy youngsters. They were very safety aware, providing hand sanitizer upon entry. We ordered our pizza with monkey sauce! (No monkey parts involved) and fries. What a surprise when our waitress brought each child a plastic tray...with plastic cutters and a ball of fresh pizza dough with flour! Quite messy, but the children were very entertained and took their pizza dough home to be entertained later! Food came quickly, was hot and just as expected if not better! Would definately recommend!More

We went there late in the eavening on a weekday without any hope of being served. We ordered pizzas. They were very good thin-based. The writers were also good and the service was fast. We'll be going back as we saw plenty of other dishes...being served to other customers that liked delicious.More

This was a nice place. It was chilled out, seemed like a locals’ favourite, played nice music, and the service was great (one of our dishes was a little delayed and the waiter was very courteous in the way he kept us informed). Also I...had this Cape Malay seafood curry in a pot that was like a magician’s hat. It seemed to contain endless seafood and sauce. Which was good news because it was so nice.More
