“Take your taste buds on holiday”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Nestled in a cosy garden, this is the place to savor the true delicate flavor of the weskus. Far away from the awful fish and chips, or seafood platter where everything tastes of oil, chef Kobus offers innovative dishes based on traditional west coast cooking and ingredients from the region. Try the watermelon and bokkom salad, or the fresh oysters with apple.

Make sure to book in advance since there are once a few tables.

“West Coast regional cuisine of highest order”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

What an experience! Kobus, now waiting for your food book, which is in the pipeline. No wonder those few tables are booked out weeks in advance!

“Amazing little restaurant”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Just had lunch at the restaurant and was amazed at the food presented. A very small little eatery, only 5-7 tables, offering only seafood (you will not find steak or chicken on the 5-7 dishes served daily, or desert).

The seafood was original and exceptionally tasty. Interesting edible greens are used in some of the dishes, I had a type of salty succulant with my starter that tasted amazing. My wife had mussels that melted in ones mouth.

We are returning to this amazing little town, restaurant and exceptional chef.

“Great, great seafood”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

I love mussels and had the best mussels at this tiny bistro taking the baton from a restaurant I have been frequenting for some time. For people who love seafood- this is the place. Kobus van der Merwe is brilliant and his creations are both innovative and tasty. If you do not like seafood - rather give this one a skip. For those who do- a feast await.
