We come here every year as a family for a late lunch and enjoy spending hours together. Bring your swimming costume so you can have a dip before or after your meal or in between! Home made bread is deadly delicious! Pate and jam available as well. Seafood is good but the highlight are the ribs - to die for!... More

It is a rustic and simple construction just inside the sand beach. Great views from the sea and the dunes besides the seats makes it very pleasant! I had game meet and seafood platter and I recommend the seafood! It was good but not great! Satisfactory cuisine with a great view...that's how I summarize it!

Great restaurant on the beach with a wonderful atmosphere. Eating delicious seafood which was cooked to perfection with yr feet in the sand - what's not to love!! Food is pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

Really out of the ordinary setting on the beach sand. Encourages one to kick off your shoes, relax and have fun. We ordered the Meat platter and Shellfish platters, pretty pricey but great variety to tantalise the taste buds. The ostrich steak, crocodile skewers, prawns, scallops and calamari were highlights. Definitely worth a try just for the experience.

We had an amazing lunch! The seafood was fresh and it was a relaxing atmosphere! You can have the kids play in the sea while the parents can have a nice drink!

Awesome styling, a mix of Mozambique and Afrikaans/African old school. Liberal use of bamboo for roofing and some walling, thatch etc. The floor is sand, which is really cool. The plates are enamel and they serve "moerkoffie" made old school style on a coal stove. To be honest, there's no way to describe this place in words, you HAVE to... More

The food is excellent. Love the style of beach building with sandy floors and great service. So nice to sit outdoors right by the sea.
