Very tasty reasonably priced food. Large variety, specialsing in fish and traditionally South African food. Restaurant has wonderful views and practically on the beach. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“Worst ox tail”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Why boast that this is a special dish when it cannot be eaten? Stick to what you know best and don't hold out that the 'specials' are special. Probably our fault for choosing something not traditionally associated with Ons Huisie. Unfortunately, not what it used to be.

“A little less that we expected.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We visited Ons Huisie on a beautiful fall day in May while on a costal drive. The restaurant has a beautiful setting, right across from the beach. While the view and the building are very nice the service and the food was not up to par. We had their fish and chips and the fish was cooked very unevenly, some was overdone and some was under cooked. The service was quite slow and lacking in providing the condiments associated with the meals we had. Trying to track down the waitress proved difficult. The restaurant was not crowded so it wasn't that they were too busy. All in all a very so so meal.
