Where Kings And Queens Wine, Dine And Laugh

The Bistro is a restaurant on Gansbaai’s main road that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a choice of indoor and outdoor seating. The bistro-style menu has a selection of à la carte dishes, delicious pizzas and decadent desserts. Whether you decide to tuck into your morning bacon and eggs, devour succulent beef ribs, feast on authentic Durban curry or get a pizza to go, The Bistro guarantees freshly prepared food at an affordable price. Remember, the ribs and curry need to be pre-booked a day in advance to ensure the very best bistro experience! There is a fully-licensed bar and only liquor purchased on the premises may be consumed. If you aren’t in the mood for a meal, you can choose to curl up on the leather couch and relax in the Whiskey & Cigar Lounge or hang out in the private back garden and enjoy a refreshing after-work cocktail. The Bistro is wheelchair accessible and is available for your private function for up to 35 guests.
