Simply a good diner. That's what you at going to get at the duchess. Cheerful and friendly staff, tasteful food and a romantic atmosphere. What else do you need for a night out?

Food was very good and relatively inexpensive. Service was friendly and attentive. Cool vibe and unpretentious. I've had steak tartare all around the world and this version is solid. Fish was prepared flawlessly. It's not fancy. It's inviting and comfortable.

In a town full of great food, this restaurant provides solid fare, nothing extraordinary, but if you enjoy quirky, hip, in the know places and a dog or two under your feet, you will love this place. Full of cool local folks.

The restaurant is located on Wisbeach Road in Sea Point so I would assume the name has something to do with that.
