Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This spot is great if you love old, dry food, blobby sauce, terrible service, untrained waitresses, unfriendly, brainless, short-sighted management who have zero interest in customer satisfaction or the most basic requirements of any restaurant, viz. that you actually get what you order from the...menu.More

Enjoyed the experience with a view over the bay. Well received with great menu and well prepared food. Staff was warm and welcoming. Will recommend the experience.

Popped in by chance looking for a bite of lunch - found a really popular gem overlooking the bay. Some really good live music as well. We had the nachos and seafood basket which were both good and reasonable prices. It still surprises me that...some restaurants still don't offer a wider choice of beers. There a SO MANY local craft brews in South Africa...Very chilled lunchMore

Would never recommend this restaurant. Waited over an hour for food. We waited over 50 minutes for food and never received it. When we asked what was going on... we were told to sit down and wait even longer. And then acting manageress extremely rude...and patronizing and belligerent. No one should be treated like that. It's disturbing. To think that all my work friends and I wanted to go there on a Friday for a get together... Hell no. I will recommend we go somewhere else.. Don't need to wait hours for food and then be told basically to shut up and go and sit down and wait longer. This is disgusting. And no appetite to fix the situation and I wonder after this review... There ever will be. My advice... You may have had a good experience... But lately... Rather choose another place. To make matters worse... when I contacted the manager- he was very rude and made false and untrue accusations. There is no appetite to fix the situation. Would never recommend.More

Gorgeous harbour views, great seafood and chilled vibe! Staff were super friendly and accommodating. They allowed our two dogs 🐾 to remain with us while we sat down for lunch! 🤩 Seafood platter was great for two to share! Car parking at either side of...restaurant! Kids play area also. Place was buzzing and can see why! 😉 Highly recommended!More

This is a real awesome find. The view is spectacular and the seafood platter and fish nuggets are divine. I hate prawns but would easily eat a dozen here, they're delicious. Only bad thing, service is "rusting", so expect to wait.

Down to earth west coast vibe with awsome calamari and a coctail menu second to none. The hake (owners choice) tastes like the sea. Dont expect glam and glitz but a fresh sea breeze, toes in the sand and a pet friendly family atmosphere.

We were so disappointed with our recent visit to this restaurant for dinner. This was always our go-to restaurant when visiting the West Coast, but it has sadly gone downhill! The food is definitely not at the same level it used to be. My husband...ordered a sirloin steak, but got something that looked and tasted like a (bad) piece of pork. We also noticed that there were very few visitors, whereas it used to be packed in the past, so something must be wrong? Pity, because it has a beautiful setting and view.More

Seating both indoors and outdoors - but windy and cold outdoors. Food was average and service okay. Calamari stringy. A young band were playing and where we were seated the base was really overwhelming. But nice to see that the proprietor gives the youngsters the...chance to showcase their talents.More

The worst service possible. The waiters play loud music in the restaurant and seem totally disinterested. We saw all the waiters go outside the property near the beach and take photos of each other for about 25 minutes. I went over to call our waiter...and got serious attitude for disturbing them. I will be surprised if this restaurant stays in business much longer.More

Living in Langebaan, we always prefer to eat out in town. We visit this establishment on 05/12/2018 and promised our son to take him there as he was not present. Decided to go there as a family for a Sunday lunch two weeks ago. We...arrived at about 12:15, sat down for at least 20 minutes without eye contact from a waiter. Decided to go, nobody bothered to serve us. Extremely dissapointing, not sure if we will go back again and worth the drive.More
