I have been to Kitchen Windows several times and each time I walk away VERY HAPPY! I am very fussy oabout service and food and this place have yet never disappointed me. Going here for dinner and even ordering take-always is fully satisfying.

Being local in Jbay this would be where I would recommend anyone to go business/or relaxation.

Great restaurant. In a very good corner of the beach. The decoration told the history of the surfers in the area. The food was excelent and for a very good price. It was very family friendly. Great view. We saw lots on reviews on trip advisor for being crownded but we got a table right away. Staff was very frinedly.

Booked a table for 4 just to be told that they have no availability, so we decided to book a table for the following night (and confirmed the booking). When our party arrived, we were told that our booking was for the previous night (which was suppose to be fully booked) and that they have no table available for us. Although our whole party heard the confirmation, management accused us of lying and refused to accept responsibility for their error. Once we started asking questions i.e. how we had a table booking if the restaurant was full, why they confirmed the booking etc. Management got rude and turned their backs on us and ignored us. This is how they treat people providing their livelyhood, so I won't recommend this place to anyone!!! There are much better restaurants with excellent food and service in J'bay including De VisWifj and Walskipper!

Thank you for your review. As you are well aware, December is one of the busiest times in Jeffreys Bay and unfortunately we are not able to make tables available if there are none. Unfortunately when we take reservations there will always be tables that do not arrive, come on a different day etc; that unfortunately does not mean that we are able to create a table. My appologies if you feel that you were treated rudely. Marius

This place amazes me every time. Great food, friendly and prompt staff always looking to do the up sell but in a professional manner.

Food is amazing, although I would not recommend the pizza as you can see it is not their speciality.

Jbays best restaurant without a doubt.

Go on weekends when they have the jumping castle for the kids.

Book a table!

Style and presentation over food... We felt really lucky to get as table without booking. The service is best we have had in Africa. Attentive, interested and knowledgeable. Great location and view.

The crux is the price... We spent double our prior most expensive meal we have had since being in sa... Final bill was 550rand... It just didn't feel as good as it indicated.

Eg.. 50rand for glass of wine

Thank you very much for your review, glad to hear that you enjoyed the evening with us! I am however a little confused as to the price issue, we do not have wine at R50 a glass? Please have another look at your bill and get back to me, depending what wine you had it should be R18 for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or red, R25 for a glass of chardonnay and R28 for a glass of Cafe Culture red. The Methode Cap Cassique sparkling is the most expensive at R35 a glass.
