Ate here on a couple of occasions during an extended visit to South Africa hence the belated review. First time was in February but we did also eat here at the end of March, with our friend Michel before our return to the UK. In February we went for Dinner which was excellent. Outstanding food and excellent service. Both Quentin the Chef Owner and David as front of House were extremely welcoming and friendly. After we returned to Hout Bay from travelling we wanted to re-visit so went for Sunday lunch. Excellent food and again the same excellent and friendly service. One of our favourite restaurants during our time in South Africa. Would highly recommend.

On the 22nd of September 2018 our daughter’s wedding was held at Quentin At Oakhurst restaurant Hout bay Western Cape.
The ceremony was held on the patio adjoining the restaurant, all the guests sat in the garden at the bottom of the stairs and were all up close to where the bride and groom were married which made it very special.
After the ceremony was completed we were served the most wonderful canapė and drinks by the restaurant staff, who were I must say very professional and on point.
We then moved inside to the dining area which is decorated with so many wonderful and interesting pieces of memorabilia, the whole ambiance of the area was so warm and welcoming.
We were seated at one long table which was wonderfully laid out with much attention to detail, the whole seating layout made everybody feel very much as one big family.
The food was just out of this world.
The meat was carved by the owner himself and was visible to all in the dining area, with much carving skills Quentin served up perfectly sized portions.

The whole experience at Quentin’s was a very special day that was turned into a magical day, the owner and staff were so friendly and professional and made everybody feel very welcome.
I would highly recommend this venue to any couple who are looking for intimate wedding experience.

What a treat! Chandeliers....bowls of Roses..Mirrors and quirky memorabilia make up this magnificent Barn conversion. The food is outstanding. Every dish lovingly prepared. I had the smoked snoek terrine and the rack of lamb. Delicious. Everyone raved about their chosen courses. They also do amazing Sunday lunches, I believe. This is a perfect place to celebrate special occasions.

Enjoyed a lovely evening at Quentins. Food was excellent, staff lovely and Quentin himself made us feel so welcome. He even persevered in helping us get a taxi home as we were having no luck.
Great food and lovely people.
