The perfect spot for a beach - lunch - drinks whatever combo. There is no better place as far as I am concerned to enjoy Hout Bay on a sunny day. Meals are fine, service with a smile. perfect for family's with children!

Great for couples but also great with kids as they have a seperate play area for them in the sand. Food is good. Oysters are the best.

We went to Hout Bay to find somewhere for brunch on the recent public holiday. We happened upon the Dunes and what a happy find it was. There was a choice of three breakfast buffets, all very varied and well priced. We chose the continental buffet and we were faced with so much choice of cold meats, chees, pastries and... More

This hidden little gem with a great view of the ocean and the harbour heads. Possibly had the best sushi as it's stacked with quality ingredients. I'm definitely going back for round 2. The service could improve a little as the waiters are constantly on the move. I love that the place is pet friendly. The long island ice tea/long... More

Sitting upstairs eating whilst enjoying the fabulous view across Hout Baai is a great experience. Mussells are a particular favourite as too is their calamari with chunky home made chips! Children are well catered for with sandy areas and climbing frames.

It's a while since I eat here, and if anything has changed, the quality has got better, tho the service was a little slow - but then the outside and inside seating was full. I started with oysters - not as plump or meaty as those at 'On The Rocks' (see my review of On The Rocks here). Then a... More

We arrived having boked for breakfast with friends. The waiter seemed confused when we tried to order the English Breakfast from the menu ..... its the breakfast buffet he indicated and we could order the English breakfast from the buffet or collect it ourselves. Maybe we should have realised there was a problem at this stage but we insisted on... More
