The food here is definitely the best seafood in all of Cape Town. With exceptional service they are definitely in my top 5. They also have one of the best and widest range of Awesome wines that I have experienced. Even the view of this little gem is so unforgettable...totally a fairytale of dining. Werner Wegewarth

Good friendly service, excellent food and a beautiful setting. We had a seafood platter and it was very well prepared.

As we were going to be staying in Melkbos, a friend recommended that we eat at Orca. The restaurant is right on the beachfront, so view is stunning. We didn't have a booking but although the restaurant was full, we only had to wait a few moments for a table. The staff were lovely, very friendly. But the Hero of the Night was most definitely the food .... the words superb, delicious, divine & excellent come to mind........

Every time we visit the West Coast of South Africa ( business and holiday trips), we make a special effort to have lunch at this restaurant - and they never fail to live up to their excellent reputation...

The view and setting is phenominal and the food outstanding. The food prices are very good value for money.

I always eat the grilled hake which comes with chips and a side salad - very fresh and good sized portion.

Try this restaurant - you wont be disappointed.

We always enjoy driving to Melkbos from Cape Town on a sunny day to visit Orca. The place has great charm, service is excellent and its one of the best places in the area to get tasty seafood. It is right across the road from the beach and has great views from the porch. I have tried several of the menu items (all being excellent!) with my favorites being the kingklip el feta, or the calamari el feta. If going for lunch, be sure to get there early or you will have a bit of a wait. If going in the evening make sure you make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
