With its sun-drenched beaches, dreamy turquoise water and a bustling bevvy of hangout spots, Camps Bay is one of Cape Town’s most cosmopolitan suburbs. But it’s the ever-expanding array of ultra-cool restaurants, with stunning views of the powdery aquamarine Atlantic Ocean, that make it a top dining destination for locals and tourists alike.
One such spot is Surfshack – a contemporary diner-inspired eatery – where lovers of a vibey yet chilled buzz will feel right at home.
The view-drenched terrace offers front-row seats to the dazzling ocean, while inside the rustic-chic interior lends itself to sitting back and soaking up the scene.
The extensive menu at Surfshack features an array of tasty diner-style dishes with a modern twist, presented with panache.
The sharing plates include crispy corn on the cob; tempura crab claw; blistered jalapeño peppers; and seared ahi tuna, with barbeque lamb chops; grilled chicken kebabs, dry aged sirloin on the bone; and a bucket of shellfish for mains. There’s also a pizza section and a variety of burgers, featuring a lobster roll; hot pastrami dog; hot honey-fried-chicken burger; and a bacon-beer-and-cheese burger, followed by sweet endings of frozen mousse, banana cream pie, and milk panna cotta – to name a few.
The sea-facing terrace is the place to be on any given afternoon – the only problem is you might never want to leave.
