First of all I enjoyed the food. I would go again because the food portion is really value for your money. You will get that home feeling once you step into the restaurant.

Perfectly situated with great views. Friendly service and great chats. The bread...gosh..like they say in Afrikaans: "dit proe soos nog". The milk tart is just as wonderful and the curry fish very tasty. Lovely arts and crafts. Indeed worth the stop and definitely highly recommended!

similar to the earlier review in that the food is pleasant enough and views are lovely but someone must tell the lady working there that it doesn't cost anything to be cheery or to smile, being grumpy turns patrons away my wife wasn't too impressed...and wished we had eaten back at the hotel fish cakes nice and locally made think i should have taken the prawns over the calamari thoughMore

Willeen’s is another fine example of the Kassiesbaai community opening small eating establishments. The restaurant also has a small craft shop attached to it. The food was absolutely delicious and the menu is small but suitable for all tastes. The view of the sea is...beautiful as there’s nothing between the restaurant and the beach. Bring your own bottle and cash. Excellent value which puts our own restaurants to shame. R250 for two people is unbeatable.More

This little place was a great find. It is in the fishing village of Arniston. The food was excellent, very reasonably priced. The views are great, overlooking the sea, but if it is windy, can be a bit unpleasant. The fish is fresh, well prepared...and very reasonably priced. The malva pudding is world class.More

Had a delicious dinner at Willeen's - We had a traditional Bobotie and the Fish cakes which was really good. The Malva pudding was also great. Generous portions. Enjoyed the simple goodness with no pretences.

My wife and I had the Fish Of The day and chips for lunch and it was very tasty and well prepared. We sat outside and enjoyed the view across the bay. Will definitely go again.

I took my mom and sisters there for brunch as part of my moms 80th roadtrip. I really wanted to eat fish but was informed that since they are working on the harbour there wasn't any fish which was really disappointing. However our breakfast was...great and the service was good. We had to sit inside due to krappy weather but that was not their faultMore

It was lovely to arrive at this cosy restaurant & be greeted by the chef/proprietor! House rules are quite unique - help yourself to beers & wine from the fridge, they only charge for what you drink. A limit menu of local produce, it's well...cooked & served with a smile. We ate early as a group of 7 & would all willingly go back, even the vegetarian!More
