This small restaurant is part of the False Bay Yacht Club and can be hard to find, tucked down a side road off the main Simon's Town street, but the food is worth the journey. Our fish was top quality, simply presented and very good value for money. This is not a fancy yacht club restaurant but more of a... More

One does not have to be a member to enjoy this restaurant. The view is lovely over the yacht basin, over False Bay and over to Fis Hoek. There is a large menu at very reasonable prices and the servings are generous. Service is sweet, by which I mean the waitresses are lovely young ladies keen to serve. Not fine... More

We had breakfast at this restaurant and enjoyed the harbour view and relaxed atmosphere. The food was average and reasonably priced.

Always a good experience, good solid food with the bonus of being inside the yacht club. We always relish being invited by a member and experiencing the sailing world with a good plate of food in front of us.

Had coffee and a Koeksister here. The Koeksister was over baked, dry and tasted of OLD oil. My friend had a toasted sandwich which was OK. The coffee isn't good. I think the proprietors capitalise on their location and draw people in on this basis. Not good value for money.

Hi. I read your review. Are you sure you have the right restaurant. We have never sold koeksisters, my customers love my coffee and we have the most reasonable prices in the Southern Suburbs. We are at the yacht in Simon's town. More

Some friends from our old car club enjoyed a mid week lunch at the Yacht club restaurant. On a lovely Spring afternoon we sat at tables under the pergola enjoying the spectacular view of the yacht basin and Simon's Town naval base set against the magnificent mountain backdrop. The setting is seriously draw-dropping. Service was friendly and prompt and very... More

Neptunes is a great restaurant for a beautifully prepared breakfast or lunch served by young local people with a smile. Food good. View wonderful. Family friendly. To access the restaurant one has to enter the club first. The security staff can be unfriendly so the first impression can be negative. However, if one wants to get to Neptunes the suggestion...

Having sailed into Simons Town enroute to Cape Town we found ourselves in one of the best yacht clubs visited so far. The club welcome visitors and has a great system allowing non members access to the restaurant. Having eaten here many times since we arrived I can only say real food , real value in a picturesque setting all... More
