During our visit to Simon’s Town over the weekend, we decided to have dinner at The Lighthouse Café, situated almost opposite our hotel.
It was fully booked when we phoned to reserve a table, but we eventually managed to be seated in this character-filled restaurant. When you enter, it is like walking into a restaurant in the South of France. It has a beautiful ambience, and the stylish decoration gives it a real French Provençal feel.
The food is excellent and is freshly made every day by the restaurateur Brett Rathbone who has experience cooking in the South of France. Together with his wife, Heleen, they have managed to create a real gem and its fabulous food attracts many locals and foreigners.
Deon ordered Bouillabaisse as a main meal which is a traditional Provençal fish stew originating from the port city of Marseille. I opted for their traditional Spaghetti Bolognese, with a slow cooked ragù. Both our dishes were excellent.
Friendly restaurateurs; excellent food, stylish ambience, what more do you need for a perfect evening dining out?
