The casual vibe of this new addition to the Muizenberg beachfront is carried through to the chalkboard menus, which offer a selection of simply cooked pub grub that’s well portioned and fairly priced. Options include flavourful fried calamari dusted with flour and masala; the pizza bianco, which is light, crispy and laden with garlic; peri-peri chicken livers; and grilled calamari served with either garlic aioli or a salsa verde.
For mains you could dive into the usual suspects like burgers, steak, calamari or the clear winner – pork ribs. With a generous coating of basting sauce, the delicious meat literally falls off the bone, and the portion is big enough to leave some for lunch the next day. The highlight for dessert is an almond tart with subtle hint of nutty flavour.
