The restaurant is nicely situated for a visit to the lower viewing sites for penguins – which are also less busy. Staff were friendly and helpful, including sorting out a good table with a view, and rolling down blinds to ward off the breeze. We went for the simpler fare, burgers, fish and chips – which arrived promptly and were tasty and well priced. A good stopover for lunch after a morning at Cape Point.

After spending the morning at Cape Point, Boulders Lodge in Simon's Town was the perfect place to stay over. We spent the afternoon exploring the quaint, seaside village before retiring to the lodge for some relaxation to the sound of the waves. We enjoyed an amazing 3-course dinner at the lodge and our room was comfortable. The next morning we had a light breakfast before heading across the road to see the famous penguins of Boulder Beach! Although it was only for one night, we felt like we had been on holiday!

I had lunch in this restaurant as part of my cape peninsula tour and it was worth the visit. Food was nice, not very big portions, but good quality, service was fast, nice and friendly.
The best part is really the view, beach front, great place to sit, enjoy a good wine and relax.

We are big fans of this restaurant, but the standards have definitely slipped over the last year. The staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere, but the food needs some work and the service needs a lot ! They were definitely understaffed on the last two occasions we have visited, so we will leave it off our list for a while before trying it again.
