Beachfront lunch a treat
Go there hungry, because these portions are generous.
But make sure whatever you do, save space for dessert.
I had the vanilla pannacotta (R69), which was creamy perfection with a crunchy topping, and my guest had the zesty lemon slice (R69), which was so amazing that I’m definitely making a return trip to have one to myself.
I wish I’d tried the Turkish delight platter though. At R69, it offers traditional Turkish delight made in-house. I noticed it too late.
I feel like no matter what time of the day you’re hungry, Bistro on Beach will sort you out.
The breakfast menu looks good – eggs Benedict for R59, but there is also a list of burgers with mouthwatering descriptions, including maple roasted bacon, caramelised onion and melted Brie. They’re priced from R79 to R99, and all come with chips or potato/sweet potato wedges, and a side salad.
There’s also a tapas menu, priced from R49 to R69, which I have no doubt will go down well with your drink of choice on a lazy afternoon.
We washed down our meal with a bottle of sparkly Pongracz (R199), but there’s a full bar with a generous wine list, and the same for beers, including craft and draught.
Our bill totalled R873 before a well-deserved tip.
It’s pretty much a must-visit, so make a date with Melkbosstrand.
The hake and prawns combo at R159 is a plateful of deliciousness.
