Owners description

Ons Huisie (literally translated to Our Small Home) has a long and colourful history in the development of Bloubergstrand.Ons Huisie is a great family restaurant as all their regular guests would agree. Imagine watching a post card sunset, sipping on a glass of wine while your kids play on the green lawns and wooden boat. A new addition would be their play area, and exciting kiddies menu. Ons Huisie is the perfect wedding venue if you would like a relaxed and traditional atmosphere.

  • We visited Cape Town from 24/10-05/11 and visited Ons Huise a bunch of times. The food was great and everyone so friendly. Yes, the waiters take some time to take your orders, but it gave us more time to take the view in and enjoy. We booked my Mom's 80th birthday dinner. My parents were so surprised and said that they will definitely go back again. Well done.

  • I wish I could give this place less than one for the experience and service we received there. We left after nearly an hour without ordering anything. We called 4 waiters and still after calling Sewan the manager we had to wait another 20 minutes for him so that he could tell us it's out of his jurisdiction to tell us who the owner is and that he was stocking the bar. What a disappointment. Sorry but ons Huisie is not on our list of regular visits when coming to Cape Town anymore.

  • Not a great outing for me and my family. Was seated at a dirty table. Waited 15 minutes to be served and eventually went to find a waiter myself to give us menus and clean the table. Then waited an hour and a half for our food. I kept complaining and was ignored. Waiter was never around. The food was ok but not worth the wait and some of the food was over priced. We live in the area and won't go back. Spent over 2 and a half hours there mostly waiting to be served and have our food which is a long wait for ourselves and 3 little kiddies.

  • I have been going to Ons Huisie for over 30 years and it never ever disappoints. Yes there have been some additions to the historical old building but the ambiance inside is always just wonderful. The Fish & Chips or the Samp are my personal favorites. On hot summer days, it is nice to know that they are pet friendly outside.

  • Shocker, so many waiters all huddled inside. Food cold, no knives and forks, waiters don't have designated areas, how do they survive?

  • What an awful experience. We, and the tables around us, litterally waited 85 minutes for our meal. Management totally disinterested.

  • This historically laden restaurant oozes character, drawing heavily from its rich fishing heritage. Portions are huge, and the pricing is extremely good. Friendly service coupled with a real home-style feel make this a great option for an easy night out with friends or family. The red meat dishes, however, fell short of expectations. The fantastic position and atmosphere almost make this issues irrelevant, and Id still recommend Ons Huisie to anyone seeking a slice of West Coast hospitality.

  • As a first time visitor, dinner at Ons Huisie turned out to be a mixed bag. This historically laden restaurant oozes character, drawing heavily from its rich fishing heritage. Portions are HUGE, and the pricing is extremely good. Friendly service coupled with a real home-style feel make this a great option for an easy night out with friends or family. The red meat dishes, however, fell short of expectations. Its possible that I made the mistake of ordering red meat at a predominantly seafood restaurant, but the lamb bredie featured many tough and chunky pieces of meat. A rack of ribs also ordered by our table lacked flavour and wasnt enjoyed much. The fantastic position and atmosphere almost make these issues irrelevant, and Id still recommend Ons Huisie to anyone seeking a slice of West Coast hospitality.

  • The building and the surroundings are charming, and the food is good although not exceptional. I have to agree on the comments on the really sketchy service here. I ate here on a cold midweek evening before Christmas. Im new to South Africa but had been recommended a couple of local specialities. When I asked the (Afrikaans) waitress for a little more information for bobotie I got...Its meat... errr its minced meat. Having also also been incorrectly told that the picked fish would be hot, when I asked why it had arrived cold I was told... Well they (the kitchen) told me it was hot.Maybe this place is best reserved for locals - but a simple English spiced meat and fruit with egg custard would have been fine, and admitting a mistake on the fish would have redeemed the misunderstanding, but having had no idea what I was eating, both dishes disappointed - the bobotie meat was bland and overly sweet and the picked fish was too spicy to eat. I had really wanted to love this place... but if I have to eat here again Ill probably stick to the pizzas.

  • We had lunch at Ons Huisie on Saturday, and even though I live in the area, I had actually never been to this restaurant before. We had a wonderful time there - the meal did not take long to be served, the food was good and the staff were all very friendly.The chef even went out of his way to honour a special request we had.This is a great venue on a nice sunny day, as you can sit outside and admire the beautiful ocean views. We will definitely be back!

  • We also visited Ons Huisie on Sunday, and can only say that it is a wonderful restaurant. Our waiter was very knowledgeblae about the menu and paid particular attention to our 5 year old son, making him laugh and entertaining him. It is rare to find restaurants on the beach front who are so hospitable with families. We also think we had the best bredie in SA! Thank you Ons Huisie Team!

  • Never before have I seen such BAD ATTITUDE from a waiter as this past Sunday. Ons Huisie is a nice enough restaurant in a beautiful setting, but a waiter with a bad attitude can kill any restaurant. This waiter was abusive, grumpy, bad-mannered and the managers comment, We have not had complaints about him before certainly adds to the perception that service here is not a priority! AVOID if you like decent service by decent human beings. DO visit if you do not mind surly and abusive staff.
