Decent food and excellent service. Many choices with wide range of the wine list. The location is right on the beach so great if you get a table with a beach view.

We visited Seaforth with a group of family for a celebration in November. The restaurant was quiet because of the rain but we had a great table next to the windows and there was a nice atmospheric. All of our meals were good quality and well cooked - we all thoroughly enjoyed our food! The service was good with friendly... More

We stopped there for a quick bite on a gorgeous day and the place was packed with tour groups. We were fortunate to get a table on the stoep which was stunning! My Greek salad was fresh and crisp and generous with the feta and kalamata olives. My husband's fish and chips was a bit mixed. The fish looked fabulous,... More

One of the best seafood restaurant around. Outstanding service. I love to have sundowners on the terrace as it is right on the beach and you can see penguins as you sip your sorrows away. Definitely recommend the seafood curry in the cute pots they serve them in.

Enjoyed my lunch here at this Simon's Town restaurant located right on the beach and offering nice views on the outdoor patio when the weather is good. Fresh, tasty hake and really good kingklip. It can be a bit pricy but you pay for the view and the service was courteous as well. I would come back again.

We ate on the deck sheltered from the incessant wind. Service was quick and waiters fun and witty. Accurate food recommendations. Beer battered fish very tasty. Grilled fish had too many bones. Octopus was surprisingly good. Drinks there in a flash. Nothing fancy but efficient, friendly service. Would like to see local brewery beer available. Certainly impressed our tourist visitors.

Good food - and much more than needed. 4 adults shared a plate for two but we were not able to finish it. We first ordered two plates but we were recommended by the staff to stay with one plate. Good advice. It took some time to get the food and the kids were served at different times.

Firstly, the waitress didn't correctly say the price for the seafood platter for 2. It was a horrible surprise when the bill came. I wouldn't have minded the price if the food lived up to it but the food was horrible. No seasoning, not well cooked, chips were hard and half of the platter was frozen seafood and not fresh....
