Really out of the ordinary setting on the beach sand. Encourages one to kick off your shoes, relax and have fun. We ordered the Meat platter and Shellfish platters, pretty pricey but great variety to tantalise the taste buds. The ostrich steak, crocodile skewers, prawns, scallops and calamari were highlights. Definitely worth a try just for the experience.

We had an amazing lunch! The seafood was fresh and it was a relaxing atmosphere! You can have the kids play in the sea while the parents can have a nice drink!

The plates are enamel and they serve "moerkoffie" made old school style on a coal stove. To be honest, there's no way to describe this place in words, you HAVE to... More

The food is excellent. Love the style of beach building with sandy floors and great service. So nice to sit outdoors right by the sea.

I always enjoy eating at Walskipper - what's not to love? Eating fresh seafood with the sand between your toes and looking out into the ocean. Perfection.
