The Kitchen Window was recommended to us by a local and I'm so pleased we acted upon that recommendation. The food was superb, really well cooked and beautifully presented. The wine was also excellent and not overpriced. Service (by Jean Pant) was friendly and professional. The walls have a lot of surf memorabilia which pleased my husband, being an ex-surfer.... More

We requested an outside table but were seated inside. There were only 3 or 4 bench tables outside. Nice grassed area for children and situated right on the beach.

Hi Lee, Thank you for your review, always appreciated. I note that you rated us 3/5, is that because of not being able to get a table outside or did you have a bad experience? We have 6 tables outside and they are used on a first come first served basis. Unfortunately we are not allowed more outside tables. Trust... More

We head here ever other Sunday and it's brilliant. Great food, friendly staff and a crackin' view! As long as I'm having to work in South Africa... I'll be popping round for lunch!

I have never ever been to Kitchen Windows, in fact I have never been to any restaurant in Jeffreys Bay other than the "known group" like Spur, Ocean Basket, Wimpy, etc...I hate change and the unknown. However, on Thursday night, I had to treat a friend to a farewell dinner and needed a restaurant that we both have NEVER tried...so... More

Excellent choice for our anniversary dinner 2016. From arrival all the staff was friendly, said hallo, happy anniversary, and always had a friendly smile on their faces. Our table was private in a corner with a hart shaped shells on the table. I was very impressed when our waiter offered to decant our wine. The owners definitely put effort into... More

The view is not the only thing that is great at Kitchen Windows. The staff is very attentive, friendly and helpful. The food is great and there is an excellent variety of wines available.

As soon as we entered the premises the staff was kind and welcoming. Our waiter was always in the lookout for the slightest glance and he would immediately come to us. He also recommended the Asian Calamari and am I glad I followed his advice. By far the best calamari main course I have had. We saw this place on... More

Came across Kitchen Windows on a recent short stay in JBay. Popped in for lunch and we were that blown away by the food and service, we immediately booked for dinner for that same night. Both meals were out of this world and top all the meals on our 10 day stay in SA this year. Probably the best meals... More

We had been recommended to eat at Kitchen Windows by a member of staff at a bar where we had a mid afternoon beer and so we made a reservation. The restaurant was busy when we arrived and maybe we didn't have the best table but many people without reservations had to wait or return at a later time, so... More

Kitchen windows is a must visit when in JBay. We make sure we have at least one ( most often many) meal here on our annual vacation. Great food, good beer, excellent service. Great as a family or couple.
