The place needs a little spring clean / tidy up - it just looks a little past its heyday. Although the service was slow, given it was mid week and not particularly busy, we had an average to good food experience. The mussels were OK, the spring salmon and prawns was slightly better, however the seafood curry was great and... More

Whenever we visit Cape Town and surrounds, we try to fit in a meal at this lovely Italian restaurant. Great, then based, wood oven pizzas and excellent pasta.

Part standard restaurant, part pizza restaurant... Friendly, helpful staff, great food and good value for money... The pizza is highly recommended, as is the steak...

I enjoyed a good deep fried Hake, chips and salad. My wife found the mixed fish platter disapointing. The fish was presented in several synthetic bowls mostly filled with rice with prawns and fish pieces on top. We would not return.

There a number of Resturant's in town some down right awful that only rely on the view. This place is so much better, nice staff, nice surroundings, great pizza and a very fair price. I would highly recommend this little restaurant.

We dined here on the last night of our 4 day stay in Simons Town and had a lovely meal. I had the Thai Chicken curry which was very nice, washed down with a couple of glasses of the local Merlot. Throughout our meal we received excellent service from the friendly and impressionable Samantha who never stopped smiling.

We had a pizza and a salad here, and were happy with the food and the service. Really enjoyed the golden oldies played in the background. Charming sea theme decor, and there's a bar. We sat at the back of the restaurant but nice tables up front too. Clean toilets.

Thank Alexis_AJB
