“Well worth a visit.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

What a nice little treasure!

The food was delicious and the service even better. A lovely restaurant right on the beach with beautiful views. Choose between large portions (in the form of main meals) or spoil yourself with a selection of delectable meze options.

Child friendly and unpretentious. Well worth a visit.

“Relaxed venue for friends and families any time of day”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Great place and ideally placed in front of a beach (not private, but it might as well be) with a nice grassy area. Very popular with family groups, Windsurfers, Kites, surfers etc.
No real need to book but may be advisable if you are in a large group.
Eaten many times here, great menu offering fresh fish and grills as well as great breakfast menu.
My favourite has to be the Cob, but not on the menu that often.

Its a great place to catch the sunset. always a spectacular show.

“Langebaan Hide-away”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a wonderful venue with good food, and has a fantastic vibe! The sunsets which you view while having your meal can be awesome! Well worth going there for a meal, especially in winter where there is is amall fire burning and makes for a very cosy venue.

Its gorgeous to sit there an having a beer... The people to meet are nice and there is good music. The food is basic and clearly less than average.

“Beautiful spot right on the beach”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Since my husband is a watersport fanatic and he always ends up at the Windsurf centre next door to this restaurant, the rest of the family ends up at the restaurant, where we can see what he get's up to out on the water, the kids can cool of in the water when-ever they want to or just play around on the grass or beach in front of the restaurant. My father-in-law lives in Langebaan and he and 3 friends have a standing reservation at this restaurant every single Friday afternoon. The service is friendly, the atmosphere relaxed, the food good and the view fabulous. It is always packed with people during the summer season, so arrive early for a meal or rather make a reservation. Don't be put off by the old photo of the restaurant on their website- they have re-vamped on more than one occasion since the photo was taken.
