Been to Doodles about twice now. Both times were quite enjoyable.

I've had the surf and turf before. Ribs were good, calamari and fish is quite good as well. Their grilled prawns lack flavour - the extra garlic butter requested is literally melted margarine and garlic in a sauce bowl (not flavourful or appealing). I last had a sirloin steak which was super tasty and the warm veggies complimented the meal. The pizzas are lovely too, good flavour and nice crispy bases.

They have really good cocktails, I especially enjoy their jam jars.

Service is mostly friendly but can be slightly slow, as they are often quite busy.
There is a cool vibe here with the music at the bar area. There is also a play area for kids.

Overall an enjoyable experience. I'm definitely visiting again. Meal portions are good size, can be a lil pricey though.

Took our son there for lunch, was midweek so they were not overly busy. If you are expecting fine dinning and silver service then go elsewhere, it is not setup for that. However... the food was great, our waitress was pleasant and the view really good. We ordered three different types of food and each was tasty and well prepared.

Nice place with a great vibe and good food. Central location in Bloubergstrand and seems to be a favorite with the locals, always a good sign
