“Laid back relaxed food”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Stunning view from the balcony. We have had several delicious light meals there in the past. The last time we were a bit disappointed but are willing to go back, such friendly staff and owners, want to support the locals. Affordable. Lots of stairs to keep you fit.

“Very nice place and people”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

you are actually sitting in some ones front room with a stunning view of Walker Bay,great food and service as friendly and warm as is possible to saver .
The food is very much wholesome homemade, with offerings such as fruit crumble and custard or cream....straight from the oven or fridge as the case should be.delightful pies and cooked stews and the like.
If you miss your grandma cooking visit here....its lovely!

“Whale watching with food”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

This is a terrific little place, perfectly placed for whale-watching - and we were fortunate enough to be there when there was a whale-watching veteran there to give us a running commentary. The food was delicious, the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

“Nice place!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

After a nice walk in Die Kelders we place ourself on the terrace with a view, you can sit their the whole day.
Nice menu with a twist, but you have to be lucky to have a seat, locals also love the place.
But the most interesting thing is the staff and his service, I don't know the name of the 2 lady's, just have a chat with them and you know a lot more About the region, we talked with them after busy lunchtime for allmoust an hour!!!
Highly recommanded

“Great location”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Really great location and friendly (albeit a little too familiar) staff. The food was fresh and tasty and the service was timely and effective. I would say miles ahead of the other places in the area.
