Delicious food accompanied by friendly, timely service and an enthusiastic owner. Prawns and fish & chips are a must-try. However, there is something on the menu for everyone.

Cafe Pescado is a must if you are staying near or in Simons Town. Great value food, friendly staff and just an around relaxed evening.

Pescado is probably my favourite restuarant because the food is fresh, the staff is friendly and it happens often that there is a live band playing in the back. One does not go there for fancy dishes and decor, but to receive a hearty welcome and meal. Their pizzas are great and really good for takeaways - you can grab... More

Living on the peninsula allows you to explore little owner-run places. Our experience of the Case Pescade is unfortunately not good. We have been multiple times and often I thought, now is the last time. Being desperate for a meal on Sunday night we tried the place again.

Had 4 different pizzas and all were done very well. From the thin crust to the good variety of toppings it was great! Has a varied menu that includes vegetarian-suitable dishes.

The place needs a little spring clean / tidy up - it just looks a little past its heyday. Although the service was slow, given it was mid week and not particularly busy, we had an average to good food experience. The mussels were OK, the spring salmon and prawns was slightly better, however the seafood curry was great and... More

Whenever we visit Cape Town and surrounds, we try to fit in a meal at this lovely Italian restaurant. Great, then based, wood oven pizzas and excellent pasta.

I enjoyed a good deep fried Hake, chips and salad. My wife found the mixed fish platter disapointing. The fish was presented in several synthetic bowls mostly filled with rice with prawns and fish pieces on top. We would not return.
