Business Information




On The Edge Restaurant is owned by the residents on the Mooiuitsig community and is run by the Mooiuitsig Community Trust. The trust consists of seven elected members who take all the profits from the restaurant and reinvest it into the socio-economic development of the small community. Most of the money goes towards funding projects focused on bettering the lives of the youth.

The restaurant opened its doors for the first time in December 2014 under the supervision of CapeNature and was officially handed over to the Mooiuitsig community on April 10th, 2015. The waitrons are all friendly and the kitchen staff are all dedicated to giving their guests the freshest and most delicately prepared meals possible.



The Mooiuitsig Community Trust uses the funds from On The Edge Restaurant to provide a range of projects that benefit mainly the youth.

Two of their flagship projects are:

Penguin Palooza

Young children take part in an arts and crafts project where they learn how to make things such as bracelets and necklaces. Their works are then sold and half the money made from that is given to the children and the other half is kept for them for when they need it.

Vegetable Garden

A vegetable garden situated at the Penguin Kidz crèche in the small Mooiuitsig community in Betty’s Bay. This project will support the restaurant and creche with fresh produce.
