We were on vacation in Wilderness and frequented the restaurant for our meals around lunchtime. It offers great views of the ocean that provides a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.

A fixed menu so things might get boring if you were staying for a week or more. However the meals we had were very good and superb quality at reasonable prices. Staff were very willing and eager to please.Good views, good staff and good food - says it all.

Stayed at the hotel so ate quite a few meals in the restaurant, found the food good but limited in menu which did not change during our stay. I felt that as it is limited it should change every few days if you are in the hotel

If you would like to relax with a drink while gazing over the magnificent Wilderness beach, visit Views! If you want good food, fresh cakes and great service, you will be disappointed. We enjoy the mocktails and milkshakes. For spectacular photos of the Garden Route it is well worth the visit.

Tasty Homemade Burger patty, huge portions of fish, chips and calamari, slow service but on holiday and with this view and paragliders launching, very forgiveable.

Ironically, we came here after dark so we didn't get to take advantage of the view! We still had a fantastic experience. We pulled into Victoria Bay just as the sun went down and had no idea where to go for dinner. It happened to be my birthday so my fiance wanted to take me somewhere nice so he asked... More

Naturally Views Restaurant has incredible views that lend the restaurant it's wow factor. It is somewhere we usually go with visiting guests because of that reason. Last night we were there for dinner and our waitress Elmarie was lovely and looked after us through out the evening. Our food however was below average - my husband ordered the lamb shank.... More

I have visited this restaurant many times when in South Africa. The food is at worst good and at best excellent particularly the fish dishes. All dishes are so well presented and as an English person visiting South Africa I'm amazed at the quality for the prices charged. The views as the name suggests are amazing with all round views...
