Fresh tasty prawns, generous portions and good value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful with a buzzing atmosphere. Great for a sunny afternoon lunch in the sun.

“Really good food and views”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

For a restaurant with such a stunning location one might expect them to be lazy with the food, but having visited twice recently and had excellent fish on both occasions, it seems they have a high standard for their meals. The views of the lagoon are exceptional and it is a wonderful place to wile away an afternoon.

“Bit of a Seaside Cafe Atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

There are two wharf restaurants in Hout Bay (see reviews on Mariners Wharf) For ambiance Mariners beat the Lookout hands down.

The food was average to good and the service average.

“Rude sore foot Manager, never again !!”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Visited this restaurant on several occasions, but I think it was the last. We were a party of six, seated next to the band with 500 Watts of music so loud that the waiter needed to go back twice to fill our drinks order.

We requested other seating that was prepared after a while, but when I told the manager that they just need to tune down the music a bit, he turned absolutely rude on us! We decided to spend our money somewhere else. Waiters were very apologetic, and said that we actually cannot complain to someone higher, since he was the highest authority. So the sore foot door manager, cost the restaurant a R1200 bill and a robbed a waiter of a good tip.

Management might argue that the place was full, but I am sorry to say, with that attitude I probably will never go back there even if it is empty. There are too many other fine restaurants in Cape Town to even consider spending some time on the Deck again. Asta La vista Lookout deck!
