I'm quite sure that this restaurant does extremely well during lunch and dinner periods. We however popped in for breakfast. It satisfied everyone's requirements for sea view, warm interior and good food. Lovely croissants, huge omelettes and an eye watering Bloody Mary made for a great eating experience. The service was impeccable. Well worth the visit

We were invited to join Shane, Marietjie, Hugo and staff for a wonderful evening. The food was excellent, the wines superbly chosen, the staff friendly and most attentive the whole evening.

What a night to remember! With live music and everyone singing along at the top of their voices. Great atmosphere and meeting other guest house owners and managers.

Thank you Shane, Marietjie and all staff who contributed to make this evening so special for myself and Maritha from Hester at Whale Away Guest House.
