Fodor's Review

A little West Coast gem, this old corrugated-iron shack on the beach stood empty for years, then suddenly metamorphosed into a truly innovative seafood restaurant. It's literally set on the sand, so you can almost hear the ones that got away; it's an ideal location to take in the sunset and watch the whales in the bay. Voorstrand serves all the expected seafood and fish, but the Malay-style fish curries and fresh local crayfish are favorites. You could also splash out and try the seafood platter, which includes prawns, oysters, hake, and calamari. Snoek samosas are a nice, local touch and so is the beef fillet served with a creamy mussel sauce. All dishes are freshly prepared while you wait.
