“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Always a great meal at this cafe on the front at Camps Bay.
Upstairs with a balcony view at sunset looking down on the revellers on the grassy promenade.
Good service with a pleasant atmosphere and good value.

“Very disappointing meal, great view”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

On the strength of a good meal a few months back, out of season, we opted for lunch here on a Friday. What a disappointment! Our order of grilled hake was tasteless, covered in a lemon butter sauce, with, respectively, inedible chips and a meagre, uninventive side salad. The side order of veg was unappetizing, comprising baby onions (seriously?), congealed creamed spinach and sweet sliced carrots - reminiscent of an 80s steakhouse. The service was friendly and efficient, and you can't beat the view, but fine cuisine it ain't.

Nice food and good service. Washed down with a few beers - what more does a girl need!
Very friendly staff and the owner was very helpful and thanked us for calling in to book which was nice.

“Best pepper sauce in Cape Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Been eating here for over 15 years now, and still the best pepper sauce in town. Right on the beach in camps bay you can't beat the view. I make sure everytime I am in town I go eat there, burger with pepper sauce, or the schnitzel with pepper sauce, delicious.
