Very rare to find this blend. The cliff, 180 deg view of the ocean, the strong breeze, fantastic ambience and a quality food / bar. What else, one would ask for !

Rule of thumb in Africa: Only eat fish when you can smell the ocean. That is true here and the fish was great!!!

Just by the cliff, over looking the oceans, perfect for a sunset view and clearing your mind! Food is mouth watering and the cocktails quench your thirst. Friendly staff but service can be better!

The sea view is magnificent and the live band added to the ambiance for a great evening out. The service was friendly and efficient. The menu offers a good variety of choices. The food was average at best though considering the prices.More

I had breakfast here every morning, having stayed at Sea Cliff for work. It's a standard continental breakfast but it's a great outdoor location on the Peninsula!
