We take people to this restaurant again and again for the outstanding position overlooking the most amazing view of the beach and the penguins. It is not fine dining but good, satisfying seafood and good service. Very good for swimming and afterwards walk along a specially constructed wooden walkway through the penguins nesting area, with dassies climbing the bushes, to... More

We stayed in Simonstown a month and Seaforth was a favorite. End of day often found us watching penguins (again and again) from that lovely deck. Staff is so very friendly and welcoming. They were so great at helping us with not only food questions - but trip planning in general. Loved it!! A favorite!!!

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday for lunch with our Tour Group. It is on a lovely little beach with great views and nearby is the rookery of the African Penguins which we visited afterwards. Our Sea Bass was delicious, the rice a perfect accompaniment with the fresh bowls of salad. This was followed by a local pudding for... More

Nice casual restaurant. If you are visiting the penguins at Boulder Beach then tie this restaurant in with the visit. Service was good and food was tasty. We had rice and fried fish. Pint of beer was R 30. I would go again.

Seaforth is a lovely restaurant, with views across the beach and False Bay. Dine later in the evening and see the local penguins wandering past. Excellent food and good value for money. Highly recommended...

We sat outside for the views of the sunset and the penguins coming out of the water in the evening. It is slightly more pricy than other restaurants, but the views are great.

This place, chosen by our tour company, is located beside beach so we thought it would be 'beach cafe style'. How wrong we were. We both had an excellently cooked and presented diner in a pleasing ambiance with attentive management. Will certainly go again should we visit Simonstown again.

I don't know what this would be like in the evening, but it's perfect for lunch. Excellent seafood (there are other choices), very good service and pretty views. The air conditioning helps too as it was very hot the day we went.
