Take two love affairs… one with food, one with people… and combine. Add the perfect venue – 35m from the waves at surf mecca Jeffrey’s Bay – and the result? A gourmet eating experience called Kitchen Windows. The idyllic beachfront location inspired the decor of the restaurant interior … warm terracotta floor tiles, an abundant use of wood, a glass “wall” of sliding doors looking out to sea… perfectly rounded off by the attentions of a band of delightful, well-trained staff. Kitchen Windows boasts a delectable a la carte menu. Unquestionably the favourite with the locals is the kingklip – baked in a wood-burning pizza oven, smothered in a white wine sauce with the merest hint of garlic, and covered with shrimps and mussels.
Now step forward the meat-lovers and submit to a flame-grilled steak, stuffed with raw garlic and drenched in a sublime garlic butter sauce… And to end a perfect evening, savour the smoothness of the utterly wicked chocolate mousse… the recipe’s a secret no-one’s selling! Open 7 Days a Week!
Beautiful sea views from the tables, close to the main beach. Excellent food!

Almost on the beach, the roar of the sea, shouts ‘holiday’. The sea sand underfoot takes the theme further in this unique South African restaurant. The Esse stove (where the heart-warming, old-style home-baked loaf, pâtés and jam await) and quaint bucket lights fi t right in with the enamel crockery. Include choices such as braaivleis with delicious pap and sauce and hearty, sticky oxtail. Then on to the freshest seafood assortment – only the out-of-season is imported from anywhere else.
It’s open air, but sheltered, ultimately relaxing, but frequently buzzing. Neat, friendly waitrons move briskly between the tables to deliver the treasures of land (including some good enough wine choices) and sea, while children play in the sand nearby. It’s not a restaurant visit so much as joining an evergrowing club of satisfied friends of Die Walskipper.
Cuisine: Seafood & South African.
Ambience: Comfy & Casual, Family Friendly. An open air family restaurant on the beach. Just outside town. You sit with your feet in the sand and all food is prepared on an open fire. Specialising in seafood!

Add fun combos, plenty of ‘landlubber’s delights’ and then you’ll understand why its popularity with locals and visitors is no mystery (unlike the story of the ship after which the restaurant is named). The award winning wine list, welcoming service and chalkboard of enticing specials on the way in complete the picture.

Located in central Jeffrey’s Bay, opened in November 2003 and has quickly developed as a popular restaurant for both locals and visitors alike. Located above Jeffrey’s Bay’s Country Feeling surf shop, the décor is decidedly Mexican with wall murals painted by well known local artist Steven Bibb. The cocktail bar also often doubles as the local golf club’s 19th hole with fellow members joining golfers Michelle and Warren back at the restaurant. An extensive range of cocktails includes the superb Blue Margherita and can be sampled on the deck whilst watching the day’s last waves roll in on J Bay’s famous Kitchen Windows beach.
Excellent service is augmented by a unique Mexican flag system. Each table has an orange and blue flag. Orange – help needed, Blue – We are OK. Popular dishes include Enchiladas, tortilla filled with re-fried beans & choice of chicken or veggies topped with sour cream & grilled cheese served on rice with sour cream and guacamole. Chicken or beef Fajitas, crispy Flautas and the infamous Chilli Con Carne are just a few of the other traditional Mexican dishes. The Mexican, however, is not limited to Mexican food and offers excellent seafood as well as steaks and grills with a choice of Adoba or BBQ basting.
