By the roadside, overlooking the sea this log cabiney restaurant is a favourite jaunt of local bikers but dont be scared about that. The food is excellent particularly the ribs and pepper steak. The restaurant inside has such a warm atmosphere and the waitress Nicole knowledgeable and efficient. The food fare is "basics done well" Its against the road which... More

The restaurant has a lovely European vibe and the view is beautiful. Unfortunately the welcome and the effort to be helpful was sadly lacking. We arrived at the restaurant at about 10.15, and decided to sit on the deck as it was a beautiful day, there were several tables empty however they were marked as reserved. The only outside table...

Travelling back from Boulders to see Penguins and stopped off for late lunch and the service was attentive and shared a pizza with kids and wife had a salad both excellent. Great views of the sea. Enjoyed it so much when we were in Camps Bay a few days later kids wanted to go back but just too far.

If old school means stodginess, lack of fresh ingredients and an out of date approach to flavour. We had a chicken schnitzel which had a very suspect, cold, cheese free "cheese" sauce. Pizza was better (wood-fired) and calamari strips were passable. For Dixies, it's pub first, restaurant second. Probably okay if you consider peaked caps as acceptable casual wear.

I had a good pizza but my wife ordered krokette with a mini loaf of bread and chips. What was served was two krokette, a toasted hot dog roll and a mound of chips, with no garnish what-so-ever. To describe the restaurant as serving Dutch fare is stretching the imagination as there are only four dutch dishes on the menu... More

I have visited Dixies a number of times over the years when visiting Glencairn and recall the food to be of a consistently high standard. I give 5/5 to the kitchen staff, who must work under great pressure and I believe are the behind the scenes stars of the show. I have found that if you are unfortunate enough to... More

visited Dixies Tuesday21st March, a public holiday,very few staff and most of who were there were new. Waited about 40 minutes to be given a menu, then during meal had to get up twice to find a waitress to get another glass of wine, it was really hot and busy so not a good experience. Food was good

Thank Brenda B
