The crispy, thin-crusted pizzas with a range of simple toppings are baked to perfection in a wood-fired oven. These are the perennial favourite amongst patrons. Other bistro hits include the perfectly seared steak with béarnaise sauce, mussels with chips, and succulent sugared salmon – all served with a choice of pommes frites, mash and seasonal veggies.Wine:
A selection to please most palates. However, it’s the cocktails – ranging from the Ginger Rogers to Old Fashioned – that draw the crowds.Service:
Sociable and friendly, but very slow once the place fills up.Ambience:
You could hardly ask for a better setting in summertime. Step off the veranda onto sea sand and take in the view of Granger Bay.And...:
Those in the mood for the glitz of Victoria Road should stop by the Camps Bay branch. (AK, October 2011)
Once again a rip off experience at The Grand. Asparagus salad for R87 had exactly 2 asparagus heads and some chopped stems so sent it back. Then the mussels were so small they were, I am sure, not even meant to be harvested. Also tasteless, no sauce with cream and garlic as described. "Hand cut" chips were straight out of McCains frozen bag and cooked to a soggy and cold state. So R100 for 1 Gin & Tonic and 1 glass of average wine. At least they didn't charge for chips and mussels. Also no one conveniently knew the Twitter handle!
A recent lunch at Grand Cafe & Beach, Granger Bay was a delight in every respect. With the V&A improving the parking areas and approach to this venue, and the owners and management having refreshed it for the season, we enjoyed the food, service and ambience and location, and one is reminded that it's a unique asset for locals and visitors.
Setting is I agree great but the cost of the food is becoming off the scale and the quality does not deliver. Also I was interested to know that the "seasonal vegetables" are still butternut and creamed spinach. It should read "same vegetables year round and so old fashioned".
