  • Quite easily one of our favourite "wind-down" (yet classy) midweek spots on Kloof Street, Cape Town. Always amazed with the DELICIOUS dishes they have to offer. Even more, the innovative manner in which they present it. A true feast for the eyes, tastebuds and soul! You won't be disappointed!

  • We visit the Deckhouse on a regular basis as we simply can't deny ourselves great food at really good prices. They have a variety of exciting specials (posted to their facebook page in a quirky, entertaining way;) no matter what day of the week we pop in- and the local artists that perform (Sunday) never dissapoint!! I absolutely love the crab cakes and shrimp popcorn followed by either blue swimmer crab or the very tasty Jim Beam ribs or a sneaky piece of delicious king crab!! I would recommend the Deckhouse with the greatest pleasure!! Relaxed vibe with an amazing view of Table mountain!!

  • The Deckhouse Crabshack and BBQ grill was all-in-all amazing. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was so delicious that we ended up eating way more than we should have. I would definitely recommend the crayfish and soft shell crab. Definitely do yourself a favour and visit The Deckhouse.

The Deckhouse is hosting its famed rib special again this winter. R195 buys you bottomless pork or beef ribs on Mondays. Also still available is its sippin' 'n' dippin' promotion (50% off appetisers and selected drinks) over the weekends from 5pm to 7pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
