We stayed in St Francis Bay for a night whilst doing the Garden Route. Whilst in low season, our hotel recommended Caffe Bijoux and advised that the owner, Mauro, would personally pick us up and leave us back! Mauro is a trained chef and passionate about his food, service and of course the high quality of produce.

The restaurant is located near water and have a beautiful outdoor dining area, however it was just a little cold to enjoy dinner al fresco, however I'm sure these would be the best seats in the house during high season. Caffe Bijoux occupies the first floor, the ground floor being a Greek taverna.

The cuisine is essentially Italian, however with a slight Eastern Cape twist, especially the fish. Maurio's attention to detail is also evident in the waiting staff...friendly, helpful but always maintaining a high level of professionalism. When a family party arrived, which included 3 young children, within 20 minutes the kids were making their own pizzas! After dinner, large cushions were brought out so all 3 could go for a nap on the floor.

The restaurant is modern in decor and lighting but not too dark. As for cleanliness it's exceptional.

For pre-dinner drinks (for 2), starters, mains, coffees and a bottle of wine the total cost was R500, with tip the total cost was R550, which didn't include the ride home!

Thanks Mauro for such a pleasurable experience and also thanks to Sarah our waitress.
