This is a terrific little place, perfectly placed for whale-watching - and we were fortunate enough to be there when there was a whale-watching veteran there to give us a running commentary. The food was delicious, the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

After a nice walk in Die Kelders we place ourself on the terrace with a view, you can sit their the whole day.
Nice menu with a twist, but you have to be lucky to have a seat, locals also love the place.
But the most interesting thing is the staff and his service, I don't know the name of the 2 lady's, just have a chat with them and you know a lot more About the region, we talked with them after busy lunchtime for allmoust an hour!!!
Highly recommanded

Really great location and friendly (albeit a little too familiar) staff. The food was fresh and tasty and the service was timely and effective. I would say miles ahead of the other places in the area.

Beautiful little cafe for a resuscitating lunch break while hiking the coastal trail. Good service and nice atmosphere.

Coffee on the Rocks is a small family run restaurant with stunning views over Walker Bay and a way better than average food offering. I is consistantly good and I recommend that you order from the daily special board which is always tasty and the offerings interesting and sometimes different to the norm. The atmosphere is congenial and one always feels welcome and at home. We are regulars just love the place on a good day.
