Continuing the legacy of her late husband Barry Johnson, Gayle Johnson and her small team of dedicated staff have set out to fill the deserving bellies of local and international guests alike. There is no better place to have an enchanting meal and watch Southern right whales and their calves, enjoying the cool waters of Walker Bay. Legend has it that Gayle adds a special ingredient to each dish before it leaves her kitchen. Some say she blows a kiss into the pot and whispers “be great”, others say its nutmeg.
