There a number of Resturant's in town some down right awful that only rely on the view. This place is so much better, nice staff, nice surroundings, great pizza and a very fair price. I would highly recommend this little restaurant.

We dined here on the last night of our 4 day stay in Simons Town and had a lovely meal. I had the Thai Chicken curry which was very nice, washed down with a couple of glasses of the local Merlot. Throughout our meal we received excellent service from the friendly and impressionable Samantha who never stopped smiling.

We had a pizza and a salad here, and were happy with the food and the service. Really enjoyed the golden oldies played in the background. Charming sea theme decor, and there's a bar. We sat at the back of the restaurant but nice tables up front too. Clean toilets.

Spacious restaurant with bar area, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We ate here twice, the first time we ordered pizza which was good and on our 2nd visit we ordered the mussel dish which was tasty but sauce texture could be improved.

We arrived early so were the only customers which was great. The waitress gave my daughter a board with dough then baked her little bread rolls. Pizzas were tasty and service was fast and efficient. Very pleasant.

We made a last minute booking as our place of choice was full! I was very impressed with my Marinare pasta which had plenty of mussels, prawns, calamari and fish and very creamy. My daughters special request for a mushroomless Alfredo didn't phase the waiter at all. The service was a little slow due to a large takeaway order but... More
