As Llandudno locals, this is our favourite spot to stop for one or two cups of coffee if ever we find ourselves in Houtbay. Nowhere else in Cape Town are we served such delectable dry cappucinos with generous lashings of creamy foam and with such pleasant and friendly service to match.

Very disappointed with the service at this restaurant. We were six people and the waitress managed to get half of the orders correct. First order: two boiled eggs on toast - this came as two poached eggs. Second order: French toast with a boiled egg on side, this came as poached egg. Third order: plain French toast came with cinnamon over it. But the annoying thing was we waited for a long time and every order was brought one by one which meant none of us actually ate at the same time. When we complained, the waiter was nonchalant and pretty offhand. If we had known that Woolworth's had a cafe inside the store across the mall, we would have gone there...

Great for people-watching. Gabriella, owner, smiles and greets. Terrific service, friendly staff, nice ambience. Best calamari dish I've ever had!

Gabriellas, Hout Bay is just the spot for a snack, a meal or a coffee. The food is good and fresh, nicely plated.
Prices are reasonable enough for locals to eat there often. I had the hake in beer batter with prawns and the most delightful chips. My friend had the tuna steak and he enjoyed his meal too.
Their is a patio area under cover where you may smoke, a nice touch for those of us who do.
All in all a good experience. Their also is free WiFi.
