The grand-daddy of open-air restaurants with an unbelievable seafood buffet and a sunset over the Atlantic to bring a tear to the most battle-hardened eye. DO NOT LEAVE LAMBERTS WITHOUT VISITING THESE GUYS. They had snoek, angelfish, yellow tail, hake, waterblommettjie stew, lamb curry, potbrood, koeksisters and sweet potato which blew my mind.

Had lunch at Muisbosskerm, beautiful setting with local fare including bokkoms and lots of local delicacies. An experience to be enjoyed and certainly worth the drive from Brittania Bay

The best place to catch a real authentic experience of WEST Coast cuisine at it's best in the most natural environment possible - the setting is unbeatable, the staff always friendly and proffesional, it's place to spend half the day and forget about the world! The food is too much, but caters for every taste in seafood's best as well... More

My wife and I and 4 others, who were all traveling together, visited this restaurant on April 17th. The view was amazing and the idea behind this restaurant is cleaver. However, 5 of us became very ill the next day, and the one that did not get sick was a vegetarian. None of us had a meal later that day,... More

This was a day of absolute seafood indulgence. Go hungry... They started serving food around 13:00 and did not stop until around 15:00. Everything was prepared over the fire or in their outside ovens. You can get wine and beer from them, or you can take your own. Even though the day was overcast and chilly, we had a lovely... More

If you want to sit in from of the ocean with nothing to bother you, then this is it. We spent a lovely afternoon here and chose to sit at the tables right on the beach. It was cold, but luckily we brought enough blankets with us. Its much warmer inside the structure if you feel the cold. You pay... More

What a simple idea, put up a shack facing the beach and cook fresh seafood over fire and hot coals. Nature provides the sunset and sea air. It’s a 2-3 hour experience including watching the food being cooked. The food was amazing. All types of local fish and seafood - dried, smoked, baked, grilled, fried and stewed all cooked by...

A great experience, well organized, great food! Expect rustic (paper plates, sand beneath your feet, food straight off the braai). The seafood is served buffet style (eat as much as you want) and the food was fresh and the variety was incredible. It was affordable and worth every cent! The ambience is homely and comfortable. It's right on the beach... More
