Today my husband and I took my parents for lunch, fish and chips. The portions were big but bland. Service was good and the location is great. Very pricey. When we left, there was a condom lying on the pathway leading into the restaurant. I told a waiter, who was taking a break right there, and he said he would... More

Lovely restaurant easy to go to if you go to Hout bay to the beach or have taken one of the boats to go to see the seals. Food is simple and very well cooked

We were told that we could not have a deck table despite several being available possibly because we had a stroller. Instead we were hidden inside where our waiter lost track of us several times.

I had the Kingklip with baby potatoes, now I am not a... More

What a terrible experience I had here yesterday. From waiting an hour and a half for my food to having to send back the oysters twice because they were just revolting. And ever since I ate there I have been sick. Very unimpressed. Will never return.

The rood was very slow in coming. When we called for the manager to complain he brushed us off. He said they were still rushing out to catch the tuna... Haha he said. Salad order was wrong 2nd time around. When we asked the waiter to change it, he asked us please to settle with it because he had just... More
