Wow, best Mexican we have had in many years. Fresh, interesting and totally delicious. Served with lots of fresh greens and herbs, we asked for some extra chilli, and a few moments later our waiter arrived with whole selection of fresh, roasted and Chipotle chillies, divine! Our waiter was great, friendly and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended! Oh, and the restarant... More

Charming and petite, Deez Guacamole and wings are possibly the best I have had. Great food, reasonable pricing, lovely atmosphere...food, customer service and socialising is of utmost importance here. Deez is an absolute must.

We live in Hout Bay and often walk past Deez on the way to the beach. So, when thinking of a place to eat one Saturday night with our grandchildren, Deez sprang to mind. We walked in and were immediately made welcome and seated next to a fire. The helpings of food are generous, so we shared.

A small little joint near the beach, the service here isn't amazing, but the food and atmosphere more than make up for it, and those running the restaurant make sure you feel welcome and cared for. Everything tastes fresh and arrives at the table piping hot. Definitely a recommended dining experience on my part.

after our disappointing experience at Spiros, we went to Deez for a marguerite instead of pudding & - again – what a disappointment. R40 (probably the norm these days; used to be about R26 when I was in Cape Town & last had); not served in a marguerite glass & not tasty at all. Not my night for good food... More

Great food in a building that is over 100 years old. Cosy and a place I will return to again and again. Food was amazing and the chilli poppers rock.

We came to Hout Bay from Mexico so our standards are high. We have tried repeatedly but cannot find even a single note of authentic Mexican food at Deez. Love the overworked/stretched staff. Love the room & location but this is NOT Mexican food. The margaritas can pass as semi-authentic. Stop with the sugar in everything? Mas jalepenos por favor!
