We just came back from a birthday celebration with friends and I cannot express in words how much I enjoyed my meal today. Apart from the excellent steak pan they offer a brand new shawarma salad option on the menu. The perfect combination of Mediterranean...More

Description
At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, we live by the season. We serve fresh produce that grows in our own garden as the seasons dictate. As a result, we offer a fresh dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. Here fresh food, complimenting our boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure. The seasons also determine the mood at this Cape Agulhas restaurant: the refreshing sea breeze will cool you down in summer, or enjoy our cozy log fires in the winter months.
