We were on a tour of Cape Point and this is where they brought us for lunch. The waitress sat us in the back at a table that hadn’t been cleaned. We sat for about 20 minutes before she took our order. When she finally came to take our order, she grabbed a napkin to wipe off the table but still left the used soda cans from the previous guests. After we were served our food, the waitress sat at the table behind us with her friends/family and never got up to check on us. When we were ready for our check, we flagged down another waiter that was outside. The waiter came in and when we told him we were ready for the check, he asked for our table number. He then brings the check and the credit card machine. After I looked at the check, I realized that he brought us the wrong check. He told the waitress who is still sitting at the table behind us, she then gets up and they go to the front to figure out how to give us a refund. About 15 minutes later they return and explain how they can refund the amount to my card. The only positive about this restaurant is that it is located on the water front. It is quite obvious that they have some type of contract or deal with the tour companies. Perhaps the guaranteed business from the tour companies has caused them to feel as if they do not have to provide good service. I’m also writing a letter to the tour company letting them know of the terrible service that we received at this restaurant.

We visited here for lunch today, where we were taken to a dirty table nicely decorated with a full ashtray in the middle. We should have known at that point that this wasn’t going to be great however, this is one of the few restaurants overlooking the sea in the area so we decided to move the unpleasant items out of the way and ordered anyway.
We both had milkshakes to drink which were good followed by a prawn and calamari combo and a mussel and calamari combo.
The prawns were metallic tasting, had a paste like texture and were obviously old. The mussels were not much better, again they had the same texture, were very orange which shows their age and were full of grit. The calamari was battered and soggy with a distinct fishy flavour. Over all it was a really really unpleasant experience and I can not stress enough how much you should avoid this place.

The place is a lunch stop for tourists groups- good view of the harbor but rushed service and so-so food. My fish wash greasy and over-cooked, and the prawns were overcooked and rubbery.
