This was billed as a seafood buffet experience at R300 per person. The location is excellent, right on the beachfront. The inside is very rustic with wooden benches and low stone tables. The toilets are 2 rows of Portaloos, one male and one female. The food was six separate courses, spread over about 3 hours, partly help yourself, partly served... More

Don't expect nice table cloth or even forks and knives. A mussel shell will do. Great atmosphere family and friendly. T'en course lunch which lasts 3 hours including crayfish. You will eat good fish relax and spend refreshing hours

This was the first time we were there on christmas but the third overall and they have always served the best food. Its always a wonderful experience to eat delicious food whilst being on the beach with your toes in the sand. And on christmas they had a crayfish shaped sponge cake!! Amazing!

We were a group of 15 people local and from abroad. The food was over cook and bland. The toilets are disgusting, we were ashamed that we took our guests.

The beach is devine. Huge boulders with little puddles of water. . A real gem. We didn't get an opportunity to eat at the restaurant as it was fully booked and we did not make prior arrangements. The menu looked wonderful though. Be hungry before you go. The food is prepared in front of you and I could see the... More

We booked here with family we had not seen in many years as this was "a great restaurant". What a disappointment - food was okay at best and we were seated near what they call the bathrooms, so seeing your food with all the flies around is very difficult. It got worse: the toilets were pumped out towards the end... More

If you're in Langbaan you can't miss this place! Great atmosphere and location on the beach! The food is very tasteful but a lot so temper in the beginning. You can bring your own drinks here.

We had a great family braai at The Strandloper. The food was very good and served in a relaxed yet organized fashion. Although there was a reasonable sea breeze, the location is very protected from the wind. We took our own cooler box of drinks which is encouraged. Will definitively go back.
