Place your order, go few blocks down to the beach and feast on your take-away meal enjoying the warmth of the sun on your skin. Such a relaxing atmosphere.... I find even when the sea is churning and rough, it always calms me down....

Advertising themselves as the best fish and chips in Cape Town is really not an accurate description. The fish was fishy ( fresh fish should have no smell) and the batter thick and floury.

Try the hake and chips combo. The hake is fresh, it's massive and is really filling. Chips are homemade and are not bought in bulk bags that have pre-cut chips inside. Excellent value for money at R47,00 - this meal can easily feed two people. Definitely worth the wait when you're in Melkbosstrand.
