We are regulars here as you can’t beat the amazing view and relaxed atmosphere. Kids love it. However was very disappointed with my breakfast yesterday. So overpriced for a tiny egg/Salmon croissant with zero attention to presentation. I will have breakfast at home next time.

They say: “Location, location, location.” And in this category, right by the beach, “Dunes” is an easy winner! It may not be a universally accepted “Fine Dining” place, but FOR ME they have the best prawn coctail on the planet! LOVE IT! ❤️❤️❤️

Did I mention that this place is VERY child friendly!

On a very windy day, we found a table for lunch at Dunes without booking. Normally opening up to the beach, the wind breaks were down to keep the wind and sand out. Dunes is a no nonsense, straight forward seafood restaurant right on the edge of the beach and serves fabulous grilled mixed seafood platters. The attention to detail is good: three different sauces, three wedges of lemon - great chips and plenty of calamari, mussels, shrimp and a lovely rose to help it digest. Well worth a visit as a couple or as a family but it is really best to book anytime in holiday time or week-end.

This is the most incredible restaurant directly at the beach from Hout Bay. Either a delicious breakfast or a romantic dinner, it is just amazing and totally cosy. The staff is very sweet and the food absolutely delicious. You can park in front of the restaurant.
