The last time I had a comparable dinner was at Test Kitchen, Cape Town. Look at the attached picture as it came out of Molly's and Guido's kitchen: Summer Truffles from France on a Fried Egg served on a perfect potato mash, baby beet root , red spring onions, fried salted sage leaves and green virgin avocado oil. This was only one of the wonderful courses served! The fabulous Days At Sea Beach Lodge offered more than I could have imagined. Fabulous dining, with a Platinum Awarded Wine Cellar. It’s the finest place to sample the finest food and wines from around the world. I would surely return soon!

Unbelievable! Best food on the South Coast. And a view to die for.They serve a 3 course set menu which turned out to be a 5 course menu. Like in Hartford House the Chef explained and we enjoyed.

Molly the chef surely knows her way around the kitchen, a perfect meal every time presented perfectly. The atmosphere is stunning with live music concerts projected on the wall just sets the right mood for the good food you're about to eat! The service of the staff is wonderful, very friendly and sufficient.

We had the pleasure of dining at the Frangipani restaurant at the Days at Sea boutique hotel on Saturday 20 December 2014. What an exquisite place!! The food was superb. A set menu to die for with no fuss food that actually tasted as good as it looked. One of the best meals i jave had in a very long time. The service was first class and the ambience relaxing and romantic. Thank you to Johan and his staff for providing us with a very memorable dining experience in a part of South Africa where the food experience is really not that great. We will definitely be back for the cuisine as well as a stay in your lovely hotel.
