Great ambience and good food, with fantastic facilities for kids to run around and play, whilst adults enjoy good food and a great glass or two

We visited The Village on our last day in the Cape. Looking for a place to sit and have a cup of coffee seemed a mission as all the coffee shops were busy. We went to The Toad, and although they were closed until lunch they still offer to get us a very good cup of coffee. And as they... More

Great value, really good quality fresh food and great service. The perfect spot for families and younger children due to the playground. The facility is also pet friendly. The quality of the food was the best we have had on this visit to Cape Town. Highly recommend.

We've visited Toad in the Village a few times. Always good for a relaxed vibe and drink or two. Pity such a brilliant location wasted - not what's expected from Cape Town, who understand good food, service and originality!! We did go for a drink earlier in our holiday with some very average chicken livers. Went back today as everything... More

We had lunch on Christmas Eve. Food was great and the service was on point. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Great value for money chicken baskets with chips served in the bar area. Vibe was great, mixed age group and a good all around experience.

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

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!"
