Description

Nestled unobtrusively on one of the most scenic coastlines in the Cape, conveniently just outside Simon's Town and en-route to Cape Point, this historical building, once a whaling station, ensures the perfect setting for an idyllic lunch or evening experience. During "whale season", guests often enjoy their meal whilst watching whales cruising along the coastline. Established as a restaurant for 27 years, the Black Marlin has earned a reputation for its stunning seafood, award-winning wine list, attentive service and incredible views.

The garden, with its 100-year-old Camellia Japonica tree and unparalleled ocean views, offers "al fresco dining" or, one may choose to dine within the restaurant. There is also the option to dine within our large glass enclosed function room which offers spectacular views and a huge open grill, where one can watch the vast array of seafood being cooked to perfection.

The Black Marlin offers an extensive menu with the main emphasis on seafood, complimented by the other choices of fine contemporary cuisine. House specialities include Cape Rock Lobster, kingklip spit (grilled kingklip wrapped in bacon and served on skewers), sesame prawns served with peanut satay sauce, seafood platters, oysters and mussels. Through the many years of providing top quality fresh seafood and impeccable service to the locals and foreign tourists, this restaurant has become world famous. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and highly trained

Directions

From Cape Town take the M3 freeway to the end, turn left onto Ou Kaapse Weg and follow the road over the mountain.

Follow this road through Glencairn, Simon's Town, Seaforth and to Miller's Point. You'll find the Black Marlin by the Yacht Club on the left.

Enjoy the Black Marlin experience - I continue to come back to The Black Marlin year after year on my annual vacation each time introducing new friends to enjoy the BM experience. It is an amazing restaurant - the food, the setting, the ambience. I have already booked my table for November and am looking forward to visiting you again soon. Thank you!
