A very busy cafe for dinner, we are very glad we booked in advance. It was packed on a Saturday night and people were getting turned away. The food was fantastic although it took along time to come out because they were so busy, would definitely visit here again.

Great local venue but every T is crossed and I is dotted! The pizza cooked in the woodfire oven was the best I've personally had in SA. Staff are also friendly and happy to help out with requests too. Suggest booking as it is always busy, but that should give you MORE incentive to go here, give it a try... More

Situated across the road from the beach at Encounter Bay great food particularly the Stone Grill. Pizza Curries etc good memu. The Beach House has a great vibe. Happy Hour at 5pm can be lots of fun.

Another great night and feed. Whether it be for a casual drink, feed or to enjoy some live music (when scheduled), if visiting Encounter Bay, be sure to call in - you won't be disappointed.

Extremely pricey pizza with limited flavour. Family ordered curries which had me with food envy. They raved about it. It cost $130 for 3 smallish pizzazs and 2 curries and 1 drink. Quite expensive for what it was.

We had a weekend getaway and ate here both nights! The atmosphere and food is amazing! At first we thought it was a little crowded but once inside we could see why it was so busy! Best experience.

Close to the water and relatively easy to find parking but there is a long wait for the kitchen even when they are not busy. Took us over an hour the first time we were there and (second time) 45 minutes for a take-away pizza.

We had 2 pizzas (hawaiian and vegetarian with ham). Both were delicious - crust was well cooked, toppings fresh and just the right amount. Service was super friendly and atmosphere was lovely and casual. My only concern would be if everyone in the restaurant decided to have stone grills, and especially salmon on the grill. I think the smoke and... More

Ordered some pizzas for the family from beach house cafe with its different menu of pizza/curry options. Very happy with the toppings and the flavours - the base seemed a little underdone. Big fan of the chelsea (on the specials board) and if you love seafood - the shark alley is a must!

Thank Trewood
