“A Warm Heart in Simonstown”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I was impressed at once by the decor - lovely soft pastels put together in an attractive and comfortable way. Nothing has been left to chance, as will be apparent to anybody with an eye for informal design. The food was just what we wanted at lunchtime, 2 of us had battered fish & chips and they were presented with a pretty salad and tartare sauce. The third member of our party had a Meze Meat platter, which was varied and nicely put together - something more substantial for a man and he loved it. Staff were approachable and friendly at all times. I will definitely return to this special place.

“relaxed saturday lunch”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

The Meeting Place has not disappointed us once, and we have been there a good few times! Their beer batter fish and chips are the best you're gonna get anywhere in cape Town! If brunch is your thing, then look no further! The staff are friendly and the service wonderful. The view from upstairs is awesome, and you are not rushed to finish your meal. In fact, we spent three relaxing glorious hours there today. And certainly look forward to our next visit! Thank you

“great little place....”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

it was an unexpected joy to sit up there with a great view and have breakfast - it is not easy to spot but once you see the balcony and look for the beautiful white stairs you know that it is going to be different. I will return again

“Excellent nosh”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Have been visiting TMP for many years, being locals, but Friday night it was outstanding. New decor, great personal service and super food. Definitely the "go to" restaurant if you are in the area.

“airy, bright”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

its nice to be upstairs and looking out as it gets one up above the street walls that seem to otherwise confine simonstown to a busy road. as elsewhere mentioned, shabby chic-ish. but nice that its so open, airy, and light-filled. had a really great fish&chip dish--the onion relish for the fish was nice. as well as the side salad it comes with.
