“West Coast seafood at its best!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Make sure you book in advance for Café Orca and if its summer, ask for a table outside where you are literally across the road from the waters edge. Magnificent, well priced and exceptionally good, friendly service.

“WONDERFUL FOOD AND DELIGHTFUL PLACE”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We recently had friends staying with us from Paris. We ate here on there last night in Cape Town. They were so disappointmented to be leaving and not able to eat at Orca again. The food was just delightful, service was great and very good value for your money. All round a wonderful experience. Just book first as they as far out and one would be most disappointed should they be full.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

The restaurant is situated accross from the sea and at sunset you have the most breaktaking view of the sun setting down. Food was excellent and Colin's service made it extra special for the evening.

“The ultimate beachfront cafe/restaurant :-)”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I was born in Melkbos 1972 and for years there was no cafe/restaurant. Orca was this first 'proper' cafe/restaurant which opened in Melkbosstrand and till today Orca is going from strenght to strenght. I simply love the setting, Orca is worth stopping at for brunch, lunch or dinner and spoil yourself by taking a stroll along the beach before or after your tasty meal.
