Great food in a building that is over 100 years old. Cosy and a place I will return to again and again. Food was amazing and the chilli poppers rock.

We came to Hout Bay from Mexico so our standards are high. We have tried repeatedly but cannot find even a single note of authentic Mexican food at Deez. Love the overworked/stretched staff. Love the room & location but this is NOT Mexican food. The margaritas can pass as semi-authentic. Stop with the sugar in everything? Mas jalepenos por favor!

Deez Mexican Bistro is not open for lunch. This is a real blessing, otherwise I'd spend too much time there. Personal service, food to die for, all in a simple, authentic and charming eatery. Simple menu but who needs more, all served with a smile. Highly highly recommend

Deez is more than a restaurant, it is an experience. Its a tiny little restaurant with a big heart. The chicken wings and margaritas are sensational.

With regards to friendly staff this place takes the cake. It is lovely and quaint. The chicken wings (Deez knees) and frozen margaritas are to die for and you're made to feel welcome over and over again. The chili poppers are only for the brave. Brace yourself. :)

The food tastes good. You'll probably like it. The owners are nice. The decor is great. The margaritas are good. The reason we were disappointed was that the chips were very thick, and tasted a bit like cardboard. The nachos had broccoli, which is a crime against nature. We're biased, because we come from the states, and are used to... More
