We are frequent visitors (and home owners) to/in Hout Bay and have often eaten at Greens. Service is never speedy but as we are on holiday and TIA, no problem, yesterday however we waited over an hour for a burger and a bowl of pasta - too long! We won't be rushing back any time soon!

Greens is in a lovely location. Food is good. Service ok. Nice place to just sit outside and relax. Pizzas are a favourite.

Went for lunch on Monday 3 rd April. We had to wait 50 mins and then had to ask where our food was. Manager was in the cellar counting Veggies. Food eventually came after we watched 6 other tables who came after us be served. We were never asked once if we wanted more drinks. Manager eventually came and said... More

The setting and atmosphere for Greens is really it's strong point. The pizzas were nice and the waiter was pleasant, although a little slow. I wouldn't recommend this for a special night out, it is more somewhere to go if you don't feel like cooking.

Dispiriting experience today. The grumpy and disinterested waitress got the coffee order wrong. The muffin took 20 minutes to arrive and was inedible. I asked for the manager who then proceeded to make matters worse by telling me how they pride themselves on their muffins and not listening to my complaint. Rubbish. We won't return.

Greens is not pretentious ( mainly pizzas,salads and burgers ) but one of those places that are always a great place to go for a lunch or early dinner . Sitting outside under shady trees with a glass in your hand, it is a winning formula.

This experience was al fresco dining at its best. Set in my favourite kind of setting (Surrounded by greenery), excellent service and absolutely outstanding food, I would have to say it was the perfect setting for two friends to have a relaxing supper and frankly just chill.

I have visited twice over the past couple of months and was disappointed both times. They seem to 'test' dance/rap/club music over lunchtime on Sundays and its very unpleasant. The staff inside the restaurant speak and chat so loud you can hear them from outside. The coffee was weak and the hollandaise sauce overcooked. Greens used to be one of... More

I've visited once before and quite liked the vibe, service and food (we had pizza at the time). Second time around though, was the exact opposite. The waiter seemed somewhat annoyed every time we asked a question, kept forgetting parts of our meals and two of our meals was truly the worst thing I've eaten in a restaurant. The 'asian'... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch on 04 March on a Saturday. There is plenty of seating space both inside and outside. Because it was sunny we sat outside under the trees. We experienced efficient and knowledgeable service by our waitress Yasmin who also had a great sense of humour. I had a chicken burger with chips. The chicken was... More
