After looking at the penguins it was great to sit back and enjoy a lovely seafood lunch washed down with a cold beer. Service was relative quick for a busy day and the food was well presented and tasted great. Recommend the fish!

i recommend white wine instead of any beer - simply because they're one of the best. Try constantia (white) or their pinotage . Don't go for spring rolls but get some seafood instead. service friendly and quite fast !

Right by the car park on Boulders beach - this proved a welcome pit stop after a long morning on the beach; relaxed vibe, good service, nice food......oh and some great local souvenirs in the adjacent shop!

Very conveniently located for a bite near Boulders Beach. The burger was a little disappointing but the fish & chips and salads were very good.
