I like the setting, under big tres, white washed Cape Dutch buildings and a nice shaded veranda area. I normally don't expect too much from pub fare and this one is fairly decent and well priced. Very nice to chill out and soak up the setting, etc. Wednesday evenings they have a tent in the open area where they run... More

My wife had the Thai chicken curry which was excellent. I mistakenly choose their so called famous spare ribs. These tasted like they are been cooked many hours ago and kept in a warmer. They were dry and tasted overcooked. We were not asked if we enjoyed the food so I can only assume that it did not really matter.... More

Went with friends, food was OK, pretty much pub grub but well presented. Equally the local beer and wine was good too. Not a great atmosphere that night but may be on other occasions. OK for a change

We visted on a Tuesday evening and were shown to a table upstairs. The atmosphere was depressing with most of the very few diners looking as though they were from the casting department of grunge central. The lighting was from chandeliers which were covered in dust with most of the bulbs out. The beams looked as thpugh they hadn't been... More

I was with a group that needed accessibility and this place was great! Even though there was a major rugby match on we could easily move around. We had a combination of pizza and steaks - all of which were great. They also had a nice selection of craft beers.

Thank Greg B

A couple of years ago three friends sat around a table and decided to open a place they would like to call home. The Toad was born and several years later we are a place that many more call home! The Toad is a business that is focussed on great food, cold beer, excellent service and good times. If you are looking for a place to laugh with friends and family in a comfortable and relaxing environment you have just found it. The Toad in the Village is in Noordhoek and The Toad on the Road is in Lake side. Come and check out the best ribs, springbok guinness pie and pizzas in the Cape. As The Toad himself always says "We think you'll like it!"
