Theresa ran her restuarant with verve for some time but it was followed by Soul Food which didin't last and now there is another restaurant which has just opened on the site.

This is now Cafe Soul. see my review . Theresa's was excellent but the Cafe Souls continue giving quality food. I wonder what happened to Ali who was the maitre d'hotel of Theresa's?

We have eaten here a few times now. Lovely. Great hosts and nice seafood. It is like a house converted into a restaurant. Charming. Some years back we read a terrible review on this establishment, however, our several experiences have been overwhelmingly positive. We think that the review was negatively biased. It overlooks a working fishing Harbour. Take a stroll... More

It's OK. I am not sure it is going to be around that long, however. Since "Theresa" seems no longer involved it seems to have lost something. Maybe it's a better lunchtime place.

The best place in Kalk Bay. Wonderful ambience. Can have a chat without having to shout to be heard above the noise. Best steak in town with excellent service. Good to make a booking. Nice place to take your husband/wife for a special dinner.

We were looking for a local restaurant to take a visiting colleague out to sample some local cuisine. Soul Cafe - as it is now known - exceeded out expectations in a very pleasant manner. The service was good and friendly without being obtrusive. The mutton curry was the most delicious we have had. The serving was just right -... More

Now called Cafe Soul and NOT on Boyes Drive but near the bottom of Clairvaux Road Kalk Bay. Laid back style, great staff and excellent value! We had the 'platter' grilled yellowtail, mussels, 3 prawns, calamari - all very tasty - R115. This place is well worth a visit.

Took me a little while to find Theresa's as the pin indicated it was further along Boyes Drive - it is actually about 200 m from the intersection with the main Kalk Bay road. The name has recently changed to Cafe Soul. Very relaxed venue with lovely urban feel and ambience. The staff are friendly and the food is well... More
