Visited for late lunch. Service couldn't have asked for better, when my husband asked if they had any English mustard they didn't say no, just went and brought some instantly. The cranberry sauce that went with the baked camebert was delicious,

Great food reasonably priced. Plenty of seating and staff who can't do enough. Had the Thai Chicken salad and was not disappointed - so much chicken and delicious flavours. Partner had the steak which was huge and so tender and cooked to perfection.

We just ate there and we were all (4 of us) very disappointed by the food. I ordered a sole but didn't get one (it was another sort of flat fish), the salad was very depressing, just greens, nothing exciting, no dressing and on all the plates, they add spinach with Crème fraîche and a pumpkins puree.

The beachfront at Camps Bay is wall to wall restaurants and after trying most of them this is where we come back to. There is a wide choice on the menu but it all seems to be attentively cooked. One starts well with a free offering of Italian crispbread and tapenade. Good fish seems hard to find in Cape Town... More

Very expansive menu, loads of dishes to choose from; we ate here 4 nights over 10 days and had a great meal each time; for a large restaurant, the service is excellent; we were never kept waiting more than 7 or 8 minutes. Also, it is real value for money compared to it's illustrious neighbour. You won't get the blues... More

We visited the restaurant with some chums who live in Camps Bay. The fish was excellent as was the service. Recommended.
