A very busy place for lunch during Easter weekend. Bookings are not possible but we managed to get a table
for a late lunch and had super fresh oysters grilled prawns and fried calamari. Perfect simple lunch on wood tables and benches with a great view over beach. Very nice waiter. If you are lucky as we were you can see pods of dolfins playing right there in the bay.

Everything about this restaurant seemed somewhat sloppy and mediocre. We both felt a little sick after having the Lobster Chowder and Pea Soup. Not recommended. There are so many really good restaurants around.

The food was great, the atmosphere festive, the waiter was on point, but to be charged R70 corkage is really really steep. No-where did the menu mention anything of corkage (or maybe I missed it), the waiter didn’t mention R70 corkage and in an era where money is tight and more and more restaurants are promoting ‘No corkage, ever’, I feel a bit aggrieved. Lesson learned, always ask if there is corkage and ask how much it is.

I visited The Deck at least four times earlier this year. During the busy season one has to queue (well worth the wait). I always opt for something fishy (oysters / calamari / hake etc). Waiters have there hands full but still have time for a smile! Looking back to my next visit.

We arrived too late for the renowned sunset views but it was just about warm enough to sit outside. We ate piri piri prwans and fish & chips. Nothing too special but nice enough. Good casual dining.
