If you're on the West coast make sure you stop by at Die Strandloper. It's one of the most exciting dining experiences I've ever done, takes up around 3 hours - which is lovely as you make a day of it. Be sure to turn up hungry as the 10 or so courses are pretty filling, we skipped breakfast that... More

I absolutely loved this experience. Calypso style music and décor in this rustic setting. Seated on wooden benches,feet in the sand, fishing nets and old boats about, eating with a shell off paper plates, a memory to treasure. The smell of fresh bread baking and fish cooking in the potjie pots. A 10 course meal with various fish dishes ,... More

The price is worth the whole experience. 10 courses of seafood and homemade bread. The staff go out of their way to make you comfortable and to make sure you're having fun. Don't eat before and bring your own drinks.

Service was cheerful and basic. Value for money exceptional.Right on the sea shore with invigorating swimming. Music was wonderful from guitarist and African... More

Situated in Langebaan on the South African West Coast. Very good traditional food. The most beautiful location next to the sea and between rocks. Food getting cooked over open fires the traditional way.Booking essential. Safe and secure parking.

Debs and Johan were welcoming and entertaining hosts. We loved the setting and views. The food was excellent and the setting relaxed. It was great being able to bring our own drinks. Jakes the singer and story teller was just the cherry on top, with his entertaining songs and setting the scene for that holiday feeling. I'm not the biggest... More

We had been told about this restaurant by a few people and are so glad we made the effort to go. This is a very laid back outdoor restaurant with delicious food cooked over open fires. There is no electricity and the eating utensils are mussel shells! Bring your own alcohol, though there is a very small bar if you... More

Having been before I visited again with friends. The service is excellent. The bread is amazing The rest of the food is nice but not spectacular. The experience is great The only downside was that the first 5 courses were nice and spaced out then courses 6-10 were pushed very fast so it wasn't as enjoyable as it should have... More
