Hi Sophia Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The biggest complaint that comes from any business is the failure to communicate with the client. We did have a few hick-ups post mad rush but have identified the areas that you highlighted...More

Another good meal at this lovely spot. Stunning location, beautiful deck with incredible view of Noordhoek beach. Lovely, attentive waitress. Order "fish and chips" ... generous portions and tasty. Great jungle gym to keep the kids happy.

Thank you for this review and pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, the Noordhoek beach walk is truly amazing!!

This restaurant cannot handle as many patrons as its full capacity will allow. If they are full, your service will be bad, and your food will be bad. We had a booking of 40, which they gladly took, and then got defensive when we complained...More

We had one of the best meals in southern cape town with great service and views. The prices are very fair and the food quality delivers in spades. Great Thai seafood curry and Fillet was sublime too. We will be back. Great job!
