Not the cheapest restaurant in Jeffrey's Bay, but a must try one. All the outer seats are right on the ocean with sand underfoot. Drinks are served in enamel cups, fun for beer but do ask for glasses for wine. Food was good and waiting staff very helpful.

This restaurant makes you feel that you are at the beach and ON the beach. Tables and chairs with sand underfoot. You have an amazing view of the ocean. The atmosphere is relaxed. The food was very tasty and delicious. I just found that the prices were expensive compared to other seafood restaurants. However - you are in a spectacular... More

This restaurant is quite different in that you eat and drink from enamel plates and cups and I think everything is cooked on the braai!. However the quality of the fish was fine and the service very good.

What a pleasant surprise this turned out to be. We called in for a quick drink but loved the relaxed vibe and stunning location so much we decided to stay for lunch. We discovered excellent food, a wonderful location literally on the edge of the beach and fantastic value for money. Our waiter was the very attentive and charming, Wisdom.... More

Indeed, all tables and seats are in the sand and you are sitting just at the beach looking out to the ocean. The personnel is going around barefoot and for water and wine you get small retro enamel mugs (real wine glasses available on request). The atmosphere is casual and fish fresh and very good.

Our Condo was walking distance from Walskipper. We enjoyed stopping for a beer after a long beach walk and have a chat with the local server. Also found this a great place for dinner and sunset. Sand bottom floors, hot bread, good fish meal and pleasant service.

What is there to say but... please go to this restaurant!!!!!! Most wonderful food and service and atmosphere. You can order absolutely anything on the menu and not be disappointed, truly. Ladies: Make sure you dont wear high heels / fancy shoes, all tables are in seasand (for extra special feel that you are part of the beach-feel)! Enjoy 🐟

Prompt service - pretty quiet. Loved the cool Tin cups. Our waiter didn't tell us about helping yourself to bread but food was nice. Great spot really chilled

Sadly this restaurant takes last orders at 7.30 pm but then you can stay as long as you like, though you might be the only ones there by 9.30pm ! It's essentially a large marquee with tables and benches, almost on the beach, the floor being sand, so don't visit in your best shoes. Very helpful staff, and a good... More

Thank you to the staff at Dir Walskipper for keeping the grill going to cook our delicious fish. We arrived late into town and our host called the restaurant and they kept the kitchen open till we arrived. We had dorado fish, simply grilled with veg. Fish was fresh and tasted great. The decor is quirky and in an amazing... More
