“Good beach cafe”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This has all the looks and feel of a real beach side cafe and bar. Friendly with good food and an extensive menu, it ticks all the boxes when it comes to spending a couple of hours watching the waves break across Plattenberg Bay.

“Brunch”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

So much food... we had a great experiance at the Lookout, the service was prompt and friendly even after asking to move inside due to a cold wind. The food was very nice the mussel pot was sooo nice and alot of food for one person. Their calamari was very nicely grilled and tasted great.

“Location, ambience, middle class”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

A great location and very popular with local middle class, wealthy pensioners and expats. Food is of good quality. Portions are small. Wine is great.

“Excellent fish”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. The location makes for great sea and lagoon views. Ambiance is good if you like "laid back". Fish (Kabeljou) was certainly of the highest quality (FRESH) and superbly prepared. Only critisism: "We don't do reservations", but to our suprise a few hours later there where reservations for all the tables closest to the sea. We asked about the change in reservation policy the answer was: "reservations are done at the managers discretion" The reservation issue certainly spoilt an otherwise perfect evening.

“CLASSICAL SEASIDE!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Lookout Deck has a view that would be hard to beat. From the sunny deck you look out across the sparkling blue sea; turn to see a beautiful beach stretching for kilometres to one side with a river estuary just a stone's throw away; lift your gaze to the mountains that line the horizon. it is truly stunning.

The food is good, both in quality and in price, the service is quick and the staff are friendly and helpful. This is a great place for a meal at any time of the day.
