Three of us dropped in for pizza lunch after being turned off by the lack of greeting and service at the noisy restaurant on the square overlooking the harbour. Nice and quiet, smiling waitress and good food. Clean and not overpriced. Would visit here again.

We had spent the day exploring and wanted a family-friendly, quick meal, which we found here. The service was good but the table linen was dirty and I would have preferred eating without it. The food was served hot and we enjoyed our lunch.

We visited this restaurant twice on our recent trip to Simon's Town. The staff are wonderful and the food is excellent. The ambience is really good too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

After eating the worst meal ever at a nearby seaside resturant a few days earlier our return to Simons town (post penguin visit) was made even nicer with a lovely lunch of pizza and burgers. Great food and service. Interior needs a clean up and...More
