Excellent restaurant with good choice of food. Staff were pleasant and service was excellent. We sat outside on the balcony upstairs and the views were fantastic. However be worth taking something to wear later as the sea wind is quite chilly once it gets dark.

I have tried to resist writing this review, but am annoyed enough by driving past to other places and missing out on the view, that I must express myself! We have eaten four times here, with one successful meal (a breakfast, which unfortunately they no longer do), and a business lunch about 8 months ago. However, two subsequent meals were actually horrible - I tasted one of our guests prawns, and it was so floury that I do not know how she managed to eat it. Our meals were insipid, cold and tasted as if they has been defrosted and heated in a microwave. There seems to be a lack of passion about the food. And the coffee is still awful - we have commented about it each time, and it is still coffee flavoured dishwater. So we regretfully drive past and go to their sister restaurant Pomodoro. It is so frustrating that the two best sea view venues in Wilderness seem to rest on their position and tourist trap laurels. Common guys, stop just capitilising on your position, you are in our backyard and we like to support local, especially out of season, visit a place like Lookout Deck in Plett for some food and service tipsI

I have had the pleasure of eating here twice in the last two weeks, both with pleasure. The restaurant is extremely accessible from the N2 although coming from Knysna, you could easily miss it as it is hidden behind a dune. There is ample free parking. The views of the ocean are great in this friendly restaurant and weather permitting, there are large terraces to enjoy them. The menu is fish orientated (and they bring it in fresher than fresh) but they do offer some other dishes. Some of the portions are huge so bring your appetite. Service was friendly, although on our second visit it was a little long for our poor empty stomachs. Wines are good, prices competitive.

Good fish and a beautiful view of the sunset at Wilderness. Try to get a table at the upper level to make the most of the view. Reservations recommended when the weather is nice.

Very welcoming staff and good balcony areas overlooking beach. Good food - seafood especially (Peri Peri Prawns recommended!). Service can be a bit slow.
