Beach­front lunch a treat

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
