We popped into the Lookout Deck for a late lunch. The location and views are superb, but the food is pricey and somewhat ordinary. I may pop in for a beer in the future, but we won't eat there again.

We went there for dinner after a long beach walk- we shared a big platter with all things fried! The fried shrimps and spring rolls are amazing! Definitely worth a visit!

Nice location overlooking the beach/ sea. The portion sizes are the biggest we had in south Africa and the food is very nice. Staff were very friendly too and there was a very nice laid back atmosphere.

The look out deck is right by the ocean. If you're one of those people who like long walks on the beach followed by sundowners then this is the place for you. The views of the ocean from here are stunning. I recommend the calamari...More
