“Beautiful!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We love popping in at the Views for a meal with an amazing view. Their lunch menu is reasonable and really delicious. I loved the fact that they serve rye bread gourmet sandwiches - a rare find on the Garden Route.

On our last visit there the manager took us to their upper deck which is now open to public. There you can lounge around and sip on your cocktail while feeling the sea breeze. They pool is also available! Will definitely be back next year!

“The views restaurant, a heavenly experience”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!That's how, you can’t describe the place, you have to see it for yourself. South Africa, nowhere do you get such incredible service and people, Wilderness you can be proud of such a piece of gold in your own town..We were received like royals. .All knows if you have travelled and tired you just want to eat and go to sleep. Not at the Views. Their service is so fantastic you want to stay here and enjoy. .Our waitress is so friendly and helpful you are just not in the mood to leave. We are so made up with service and food we booked the next evening again and again and again.
We also had a heavenly experience at the Views Spa.
The Views Hotel and Spa, please, please keep it up. It doesn’t matter how many comes in but how many comes back. Wilderness will be on our short list for the next holiday because of your service, staff and food.
Once again, thanks to all the waitresses, barman, chef etc. Wishing you a merry Christmas and happy 2014.

Bobby (The crazy one) and Maria

“Amazing fish & vegetable dish !”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

On a recent business trip I joined my client for dinner at the Views Hotel and had the most tasty fish and vegetable dish ever!! Service was great and the view was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant for meal quality, service and value for money.

“New owners, a massive improvement”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Formally 'Waves' this was a very poor operation at a great location. I heard from a friend that it had improved and boy was I pleasantly surprised. The ambiance has improved from 3 stars to 5 stars, the staff from 2 stars to 4 stars with a nice balance of friendliness and the food also from 2 stars to 4 stars. My wife and i are both glutten intolerant so i asked the waiter which dishes he could recommend would be safe for us. He asked us to wait a moment whilst he consulted the chef. The chef appeared immediately at the table and consulted with us, he had 3 dishes that were glutten free and then described how he could offer us 3 others dishes that he could easily alter to make them glutten free. We have enjoyed dinner here 3 times in the last 2 weeks, each time we arrive, without request, the chef has appeared to welcome us back and explain what else he can do for us glutten free. I highly recommend this venue.
