Description: We are situated on left hand side to Diaz Road cut se sac. The building is triple story with the restaurant being on the 2nd story. It has 3 parts to the restaurant. The very fine dinning inside section. This side will do you well when wanting to impress. The enclosed outside section is semi-fine dinning, where you have a front and centre view of Jeffreys Bays breath taking ocean. Lastly we have the semi-undercover outside section. Where you can get that authentic ocean breeze air and soak up the sun or feel like you under the star while seeing the moon reflect over the water of the wild ocean.

Entering the building it looked a bit seedy - but wow once inside a different feel. Greeted by the waiter and he explained the menu dishes which enabled us to decide to stay.
The menu is not large but the seafood dishes we chose were well prepared and presented. And the creme brûlée!!!! Wow was excellent.
Service was not slow but we didn't feel rushed. Overall a good dining experience - will definitely return.

Good restaurant, perfect seafood. The best oysters ever.
Fine atmosphere, only the bubbly was not cooled. But the people were nice and friendly. And a wonderful view.

It can be an arranged wine tasting evening or just a diner with friends.

You will be welcomed by friendly and professional staff.
The owners are on hand and right in the business.

Ernie's wine knowledge is endless and he can choose the perfect wine for your taste and pairing.

Suzette is front of house and the best photographer with the wine tasting evenings.

Just love the setting and hospitality!!

A varied menu with some African style options. Not in the greatest part of town but the food and attention to detail made up for that. We particularly liked that the owner picked us up and returned us to our accommodation.

We had dinner at De Wiswijf. All of us chose fish and were all happy with the respective meals. There are also meat and other types of courses available on the menu. We had a table on the deck which is the nicest area - there is also a terrace which is maybe a bit simpler and inside with nice, almost formal decorations and setting. Worth a visit.
