Stopped here for lunch during our Cape Convoy tour. Enjoyed a casual lunch of kingklip fish n chips. Service was prompt and attentive. Took a walk on the pier outside after lunch.

It's self-service...which reality kind of dawns on you after 10 minutes or so with no sign of a waitron. Bar service is also of the self-service variety. The beer fridge looks like it shouldn't produce a cold beer and it doesn't. The wine was pure...More

It is a very good seafood restaurant and it's not as expensive as the others around it. There are some tables with good sea view.

This is not a fine dining establishment, but they offer a good choice of fresh fish cooked in a variety of ways, option of different sauces and great chips. Service was good,the place was busy and it was very cheap. Mushy peas a real winner.

I visit Simon's Town for dinner and found this place by chance as it was crowded with customers. I had 2 big chunky pieces of Hake fish (local fish in Cape Town) for only R 55 (apr. €3). The fish was very fresh, a bit...More
