Cuisine, Food, Diet & Allergies


Being with the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs for many years, we value good food and wine very high – which hence reflects on all cuisine related issues in our guest house. You don’t even need to visit all the wineries in our area – simply have a look at our extensive wine list and choose. For those who don’t feel like lots of food in the evening or who simply prefer to enjoy a breathtaking sunset over the ocean right from the own patio or terrrace, we always have a ‘sundowner bite’ ready, such as a cheese platter or sushi – maybe the best way to relax and indulge!

Special diets & Allergies

We strive to keep our breakfast buffet healthy – in addition, due to a growing number of guests suffering from various kinds of allergies or intolerances, we extended our service to be able to cater for related special diets. Please let us know in advance if you require produce suitable for lifestyles such as vegetarian, lactose intolerances or gluten/wheat free (coeliac disease). This does obviously not only apply to our breakfast, we will also inform our restaurant accordingly. Our kitchen is not however, equipped to meet halaal/kosher requirements.


With a location in a purely residential area with almost no business travellers at all, we can place our focus entirely on holiday makers and their desire to have a relaxed stay. Thus, our breakfast is usually served from 9h00 till 10h30. We always provide the best available freshest quality of any produce used and we source from local free-range/organic suppliers wherever possible. On our buffet you will find a wide range of bread and rolls, cold meat and cheeses as well as a large selection of all-home-made jams and marmalades and of course freshly prepared fruit salad and juices, yoghurts and cereals. In addition, we always serve our famous omelette muffins and a daily changing sweet treat, such as Crêpes, French Toast or waffles. Cooked breakfast is of course available on order as well.


Crayfish Lodge is affiliated with ‘Red Indigo’ @ Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. It is our official partner restaurant, therefore, all halfboard bookings include the fine-dining gourmet dinner are being served there – only a short 10 minuntes’ drive away. Due to this partnership, we can offer our guests a special rate, 20% below the regular tariff. Freshly prepared by their skilled kitchen crew, the menu is small, but always provides an à la carte choice of usually three starters, mains and deserts. In addition, there are normally two soups to choose from as well as amuse-bouche and a sorbet in between – five wonderful courses to please any palate.

As Red Indigo is no public restaurant in the common sense but merely caters for in-house guests, it is an exclusive dining experience in a unique setting. Set back on a mountain slope in the midst of our famous Walker Bay Fynbos, it guarantees classy modern-african ambiance with breathtaking views over the Walker Bay area. Enjoy your dinner any time between 18h30 and 20h00.

Of course there are several other restaurant options in the village as well.
