Chase was our waiter, excellent service received from him. Very attentive we did not wait long for our order to be taken and the drinks and food was brought promptly. Great Sunday Roast, just like Gran use to make, could do with some green veg on the plate to give some colour. Lamb was tender and roast potatoes out of... More

This was recommended to me by locals. Seems to be a family restaurant with bar on side. The menu had good choice. This is not a gourmet restaurant. Plain food at good prices

Not bad - but then not great either - poor selection for vegetarian guest and waitress was far from helpful - its a steak and chips place - which is fine but comes across as if you not a regular don't bother , not even that cheap either despite its appearance. Disappointing.

The restaurant has a lovely European vibe and the view is beautiful. Unfortunately the welcome and the effort to be helpful was sadly lacking. We arrived at the restaurant at about 10.15, and decided to sit on the deck as it was a beautiful day, there were several tables empty however they were marked as reserved. The only outside table...

Travelling back from Boulders to see Penguins and stopped off for late lunch and the service was attentive and shared a pizza with kids and wife had a salad both excellent. Great views of the sea. Enjoyed it so much when we were in Camps Bay a few days later kids wanted to go back but just too far.

If old school means stodginess, lack of fresh ingredients and an out of date approach to flavour. We had a chicken schnitzel which had a very suspect, cold, cheese free "cheese" sauce. Pizza was better (wood-fired) and calamari strips were passable. For Dixies, it's pub first, restaurant second. Probably okay if you consider peaked caps as acceptable casual wear.
