Disinterested / bored staff. Disappointing food, not good value & not tasty. We had a Burger & Bockwurst. Bland salad & wurst. Service was ok but staff were not at all friendly.

When we stopped at Dixie's a few years ago, we were so pleased with our food, service and the ambiance of the place. We stopped for breakfast this morning and were really disappointed. I don't know if our waitress was just having a bad morning, or if she was ticked at our mixed race/mixed nationality table, but it was hard... More

We had been staying in Simon's Town for the past 10days and passed this place many times, when on our last day, we stopped for lunch. Great selection of food and plenty of tables. We had Pizza and chips to share and the portions were plenty big enough. Delicious. It's extremely busy at weekends and although it was a week... More

The food here was good. You can really get anything on the menu and it comes out in large portions that are incredible. Chicken, steak, burgers, etc. it is all good and fulfilling.

We regularly visit Dixies because their pizzas and steaks are consistently good. Over the years we have had our disappointments, but on the balance their food is well prepared , tasty and service good. Try them !

We, as a family, go to Dixies on a regular basis and have enjoyed wonderful meals served by very efficient and friendly waitrons. We have also experienced fantastic Christmas lunches there with every conceivable dish you could wish for. Their Sunday roast lunches are also very popular. We have reached the stage that when Cindy sees us coming up the... More

Family restaurant in a great position, but the food ranged from excellent to almost inedible. A fabulous steak on one plate and a ruined burger on another! Specified medium and told that is how they are prepared but a well done burger arrived hard to the point of being burnt on the outside, This should never have left the kitchen.... More

Beautifully located with view across False Bay. Sunday lunch special less than R100 for a 3 course lunch with roast for mains. Good portion of tasty "home style" cooked plate of food. The day we were there was a choice of lamb or pork. Relaxing setting with outdoor benches and tables and a cosy pub. Service is efficient and friendly.... More

Went for a late breakfast as we were delayed in the traffic through Kalk Bay. We arrived at 10.55 and thought that we had missed. However we were served wihout a problem and other guests arrived even later and the waitron "made a plan" for their breakfast as well. Cape Town has this idea that breakfast closes at 11am and...
