I introduce this little gem to all my guests when we do our Peninsula photography tour! The service is always super friendly and professional, the pastry and food is always excellent and the cafe is authentic and has a quaint local ambience with an artwork...More

We move going to Olympia cafe. It always has a great atmosphere. And the food is fantastic. My favorite is their mussels.

A Kalk Bay, if not Cape Town, must eatery experience. The café exudes this 'back-in-the-day' rustic charm: as you step over the threshold you are back in the 70's/80's! Great staff full of joie de vivre and a small delectable menu.

Been here so many times and always a great meal. Their musselss, pork belly and fish with beurre blanc sauce are top of our list.

Outstanding food, we decide to take our staff for a local meal before heading to the airport. We all had the seafood linguine, it was so good. The service, the relaxed atmosphere the view. Absolutely worth the trip.

A local friend of ours took us to this laid back restaurant for dinner- try the mussels or the seafood pasta- you won't be disappointed. You can't book, but it is worth the wait, and it's relaxed and happy and loud. Fabulous!
