This restaurant has been buzzing since it opened in 2014 on Surfers Corner in an ever-growing strip of restaurants in Muizenberg. With spectacular views over the ocean visible from every seat in the house, this is a great spot to go during the day. The trendy interior design has face brick walls, wooden benches and yellow bar stools to create an excellent ambience at night too.
The menu is dude-food centric and most dishes are served on wooden boards. Starters like fried calamari, tempura prawns and bacon and jalapeno croquettes are ideal for sharing. The grill menu features prime cut streaks with a good selection of sauces and butters, BBQ pork ribs with lashings of basting and half a peri peri chicken.
Their crispy-based pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven and the Asian pulled pork with hoisin, corn, spring onion, red pepper is unusual and delicious. They do a large selection of flame-grilled burgers with an array of toppings and served with chips on the side.
The desserts are hearty and decadent with New York-style baked cheesecake, Jack Daniels-spiked chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream and pecan nut pie.
The portions aren’t very big so you could comfortably fit a starter or dessert in.
They have a limited but good wine list featuring large estates. It leans towards the pricey side. They offer an impressive selection of nine craft beers on tap, and with 8 cocktails on their cocktail list, this is a place for drinking as much as it is for eating.
Service is friendly but can be slow when they are very busy.
On weekends the restaurant is filled to the brim and with tables quite tightly packed, it can get quite noisy. This is a great place for a lively lunch or dinner with friends.
They are open for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays with a small menu that covers all the bases.

On weekends the restaurant is filled to the brim, with tables quite tightly packed, so it can get quite noisy. The open bar and kitchen, picture windows, and eclectic touches – like a vintage motorbike mounted on the wall – add to the vibe. This is a great place for a lively lunch or dinner with friends.
Its worth going in the day to catch the beautiful views over Muizenberg beach. (SL)
