We had a nice waiter to serve us but that ws the only plus. The restaurant is much overrated, food is ugly, greasy, fish was fried on old oil (at leadt that's how it looked like), shrimps very not fresh, texture like from the cheapest supermarket and prices? Rather a joke. NOT recommended.

Some places you can wax lyrical about and others just simply do it all well. This place is the latter. Great staff serving great food with great service whilst you have great views. Try the prawns. Fantastic!

Shared a huge seafood platter - perfectly cooked kingpin, crayfish, mussels, scampi and more. Lovely service. This is a huge restaurant and you can't book the small terrace - it opens at 12pm and it's first come first seated. We were inside but with all the doors open the views were still good.

Very peaceful setting, great seafood. Well prepared and good portions. For what you get very fair prised. Easy to customise your order. Pleasant service.

We were one of the only guests when visiting; is bit strange because you wonder why... the seafood platter was ok but nothing much - just when we saw the price then it was much..we were mistaken as a 'false bay platter for one' was suggested (that was not on the menu) the one on the menu was significantly cheaper...

A really good location for when you visit the penguins at Boulders Beach. If you can get a seat on the balcony great as the views are really good. But once you sit inside they will not move you even if the balcony area empties-odd. Food is OK and portion size is plenty. Beware of the seafood platter. Usually the... More

We called in here a couple of times during our 4 day stay in Simons Town. On the first occasion we ate inside and I had the fish and chips which was very nice. The second time was during the day and we sat outside with a great view over the beach where we could watch the African penguins, The... More

The service and staff is friendly. But the food quality is really poor. We ordered the seafood platter for two. Asked the waiter how it was and he assured us that it would be excellent. It was by far the worst sea food dish I had ever. The chips are also not good at all. The worse money spent in... More

The restaurant sits next to Boulder's Beach, famous for its penguins overlooking the sea. Decor is fairly basic, the food is however fresh and delicious. Liked this place, unfussy and straightforward. If you are in the area a good place to have lunch. Happy to return.

We stayed in Simonstown a month and Seaforth was a favorite. End of day often found us watching penguins (again and again) from that lovely deck. Staff is so very friendly and welcoming. Loved it
