Now named Jackal on the Beach. Exceptional setting, however sadly no attempt to keep the surrounding area adjacent to the restaurant and deck clean - kids had to encounter cigarettes,bottles and other litter within the first 2 meters from the stairs leading from the restaurant...More

I believe this restaurant has now changed its name to The Jackal. We went there today for lunch but ended up coming away very dissatisfied with the food. My wife had the Prawn and Avocado Salad which was drowned in Balsamic dressing. The prawns were...More

Strolled through the museum along the beach for our afternoon pot of English tea and got a bonus of seeing dolphins swimming close to shore. Quick service, great terrace and location.

Nicely revamped interrior. Service was friendly and snappy. Limited but reasonable priced menu. Soft drinks and craft beers are overpriced while wines could be better offered as all sourced inhouse. Food was well presented and prepared.

Now called Jackal on The Beach. Perfect setting, beautiful views. Pizzas ok 👌. One problem though. The beach sand around the restaurant is littered with cigarette butts. Ruins an otherwise pleasant experience. Please clean up this toxic litter damaging the environment, poisonous to fish, non-biodegradable.

Pavilion Restaurant is now Jackal on the Beach and the historic pavilion has been renovated and upgraded. It’s run by Jakkalsvlei Winery and offers nice craft beer and Jakkalsvlei wines. The menu is basic but the food is delicious. We had the calamari and hake...More
