This place was highly recommended by friends. It was my first visit. The food was very delicious. The service was great even though the place was packed. I think the best part of the restaurant is the outdoor deck where one can enjoy amazing views. Unfortunately the bathroom needs more attention especially during busy times.

We were lucky to get a table for lunch with a magnificent view on 1 Jan 2017. Mark, the owner was very accommodating and friendly despite running a packed restaurant. We spent the afternoon eating good food and enjoying excellent wine. Our waitress had worked all night on new years eve and still had a sense of humour. I can... More

With the owner busy opening another restaurant in town it appeared that the quality of the food and service was not as good as when he was there. Rather disappointed...had to send my spare-ribs back twice.

Always a winner for family and friends to chill and relax over a glass of wine and good food. Very good location, ample parking and awesome sunsets. Waiters are always friendly too. Been good for client dinners as well! A reminder of Kabous van der westhuizen's Beach House restaurant in Mauritius

Every year this restaurant is part of our annual holiday. A lovely place typical to the wind surfing paddle board culture. So close to the sea the kids can run and play on the beach while hubby and me enjoy a hake and chips or baby calamari and chips with a cocktail or glass of wine.

Had lunch at this small quint little place on the beach. It is situated between holiday homes with the same name so signage is not clear for the restaurant section. Views were breath-taking and though it was windy we were seated ideally where we could see and enjoy the beach but not feel the icy unrelenting Langebaan wind - beautiful... More

Service is always friendly albeit quite slow. Prices are expensive but food is always good. I will always go back for the pleasant atmosphere and beautifull view of the lagoon.

We orderd tentacles with rice and prawns with catch of the day (kingklip and yellowtail fish) and everything was delicious. Prices are convenient for food and wine and the sunset warms the atmosphere.
