This cafe is really worth a visit. We took the dine -in option and were treated to excellent service and delicious food. The home made Dutch apple pie was superb but almost too much after delicious bluff oysters and delicately battered fish. Taking a walk along the waterfront afterwards made the evening one to remember.

Thank you so much for your kind review.
I'm so happy you had a memorable evening.
Westshore is a great spot especially with all the "new" bike and pathways around us.
A bit spoiled for choice, just like our menu....
But nothing can beat the Bluff-Oysters!

After a day of fancy wineries with their fine dining meals and prices, this is exactly the place I wanted to go to: Good old fashioned meals with great prices. It has a lovely relaxed family atmosphere with friendly service. Meals are basic but good and you can choose what size. We wish we'd gone for smaller so we could've fitted in the Dutch Apple Pie and Ice-cream. Next time!! BTW they have Blue Cod, yum.

It looks like a fish & chip shop from the outside but don't let that put you off. Its a nice little, and quite quaint, cafe serving superbly cooked local fish with about 6 different varieties in 3 different sizes plus a range of other seafood specials.
Give it a try and you will be very pleasantly surprised

This isn't a place you'd likely just stumble upon but the lines for the takeaway clues you into how fresh the fish is and how many fans there are. We were tired and decided we wanted more than fish and chips and so we took a table and paid more for the atmosphere and service. It's a family run business, owned and run by a Dutch family who creates good fresh foods and value for the meals. Fresh fresh seafood well prepared and served in a nice atmosphere. I had scallops and they were delicious as was the accompanying salad. A friendly place that was a delight on a Sunday evening.
