“On our way home to Somerset West, we stopped in Kleinmond for a walk along the coast and lunch. The tables and chairs are modern, comfortable and clean. The line fish and beer batter hake were tasty, generously portioned and a treat. The batter was super crispy, as were the chips. The staff were friendly and efficient. Certainly worth another visit to try something else from their menu.” axel_Ingrid, Cape Town. Tripadvisor
“Went for an intimate lunch, pleasantly surprised.Friendly staff great menu and the food met the description. Excellent value for money.” Dennis W, Robertson. Tripadvisor
“Easily my best restaurant dinner in Kleinmond to date and the first time I'm feeling inspired enough to write a review. We had the pork belly and it was superb! Probably the best cauliflower mash I've tasted too. The chef and owner make a formidable team in the kitchen. Friendly staff. We were happy with the service.Medele V, Stellenbosch. Tripadvisor
