Our first ever meal in SA where the staff just didn't seem to want to know us! We got there just before 2pm for lunch - whether this was too late and they wanted to shut up shop , who knows ? We had to go and order our own drinks , the girl serving the table next to us... More

Service wasn't bad. Food was bland. Food not served correctly. My brothers chips were soaked in his steak sauce, therefore soggy and inedible. Not going to run back.

This restaurant has no private parking and parking in Simonstown is at a premium in high season so it was only on the last day that we managed to find space on the main road. We decided on the Lamb Shanks which were massive and cooked to perfection. Whilst very busy the staff were friendly and efficient. I was torn... More

I have driven past Dixies hundreds of times, so eventually we popped in for a glass of wine and a snack whilst enjoying the views. I had a garlic pizza, which was very tasty. Restaurant was very busy. I'll be back soon

We had lunch on the patio where the view of the bay is outstanding. Husband ordered the pizza with bacon, blue cheese and mushrooms and enjoyed it. I ordered Pizza Verona with pesto (peppadews, feta and chicken) and it was a little explosion of flavor in every bite! Service was friendly and prompt. I plan to go back!

Dixies is a fixture in Glencairn. I have been there twice recently and on both occasions we were very happy with our meals. The menu selection is varied, there are no craft beers on tap :( but they do have a few bottled versions. Service was friendly and efficient. Booking in advance is advised, particularly for larger tables.

Family-friendly and well-run establishment. Our meals were delicious, and service was excellent. Prices were amazingly for the quality and quantity of food received. This is well worth a stop-over for a bite to eat or a drink.

Apparently it takes more muscles to frown than smile- our waitress was obviously doing some kinda of facial workout this day. We ordered half our drinks order(she kinda abandoned me half way through) Food was good and being half Dutch we were very pleased to find kroketten on the menu.. Sort the service out and this sea front eatery may... More

Expected much more. The waiter was very friendly, bilingual, yet very slow. The food was fresh and tasted good. Had sea view, and is pet friendly. To be kept on a leash.
