There has been an up-swell in style in Camps Bay thanks to the opening of new laidback luxe beach diner Surfshack.
Surfshack is the latest hotspot to open on the ever busy and ultra-glamorous Camps Bay beachfront. This latest addition by The Kove Collection, Surfshack, sibling restaurant to la Belle Bistro & Patisserie and Chinchilla, is an easy-going and contemporary eatery overlooking the ocean.
Situated above Paranga and adjacent to la Belle, Surfshack oozes a sense of laidback cool and adds a little extra flavour to the Camps Bay golden mile. Panoramic ocean vistas set the scene for dining, drinks and socialising with a view while the stunning sunset views ensure guests will certainly be lingering longer over cocktails.
The combination of luxe diner classics, a vibey buzz and rustic yet stylish decor makes Surfshack a certain summer place to be. What’s more, an expansive terrace at the foot of the eatery, gives those on the hunt for a trendy sundowner spot a new and exciting option.
The menu is brimming with tasty global fare – from jalapeño-dressed Salt and Pepper Squid and spicy Seared Ahi Tuna on the extensive Shareables menu to a plethora of classic salads – all with a Surfshack twist, while the unique Buns menu couldn’t be more suited to a beach environment. The likes of just grilled prawns with avocado and aioli on the Poor Man’s Lobster Roll and the equally umami-laced Pastrami on the already-popular Pretzel Roll take centre stage. There’s also a grilled meat and seafood section to the menu for diners wanting something more substantial.
Open since 2 October, Surfshack is proving a hit with everyone from families enjoying lunch to holidaymakers with plans to hit the beach. Of course après beach vibes are a thing here too, and sun-kissed guests can expect to hit the bar after the beach and settle into the menu of just-grilled diner food.
The interior reflects the relaxed mood perfectly with layers of effortlessly stylish naturals. From the large format granite floor tiles to tactile woven fabrics, a plethora of raffia and rattan furniture, natural fibre hanging pendants and an absolutely on trend terrazzo bar, diners can expect to be transported into a holiday state of mind in no time.
“Our intention was to create an all-day bolthole where you’re welcome to chill before or after the beach, where there’s something for every kind of hunger, where daytime drinks ease into night-time cocktails and where everybody feels absolutely at ease” says Michellene Leo, Marketing Manager for The Kove Collection.
Of course with The Marly, The Kove Collection’s super beach chic boutique hotel, due to reopen its doors on 1 December after an extensive renovation and expansion, Surfshack will see an influx of guests from the nearby boutique hotel too. It’s an ideal option for visitors who are looking forward to a beach break and a suitably sexy seaside spot to hang out and soak up the summertime buzz in.
And for locals looking for something new that reflects Cape Town’s cosmopolitanism at its best, Surfshack certainly has everything going for it – a great view, good vibes and a menu filled with fresh and new easy eating options to try.
Surfshack is located at 201 The Promenade, Victoria Road, Camps Bay, Cape Town, open for lunch and dinner Monday to Sunday from 12h00- 23h00.
