“Great food and unbeatable view!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Why not have lunch overlooking Walker Bay where Southern right whales play and breach? Why go anywhere else?? The food is good, service is incredible, and you just can't beat that view. Helpful tip for first timers, make sure you make a reservation for a seaside table otherwise you might be beaten to it! I highly recommend a visit or two!

Restaurant upstairs with tables outside on the verandah overlooking the sea. Fabulous lunch and the best baked cheese cake ever!

“Small restaurant/cafe with extaordinary view of the Ocean and Frolicking Whales”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

There are not too many tranquil places like this, where you can watch a calm sea and only a light breeze and frolicking whales with barnacle studded heads cause some waves on its surface. Manicured lawns and bush fill up the space between the cafe and the sea and add to the pastoral atmosphere.
Inside the furniture, cupboards, sitting corners and trinkets exude an early 20th century atmosphere.
Out of season this watering place is not opened all days of the week, so check out in advance.
