A fresh seafood buffet right on the beach – it’s got to be Muisbosskerm. There’s nothing better than an ocean view restaurant. Especially a fish restaurant! Join us as we sample fresh fish, smoked fish and grilled fish at this beautiful South African restaurant.
Muisbosskerm : the First & Original Open Air Restaurant in South Africa. My name is Ian. I’m the owner of Muisbosskerm, open air restaurant opened in 1986.
We cook a great variety of local line-fish, from snoek to yellowtail to stockfish and angelfish, to calamari and mussels. Smoked, grilled, baked and fried fish served with side dishes such as sweet potatoes with syrup and cinnamon. We make a great paella in local style with the catch of the day.
We’re open for nine months, from the flower season which begins in August through the Christmas holidays and up to Easter.
Our open air restaurant is always very busy and people visit us from all over the world.
Muisbosskerm was voted one of the top ten sea view restaurants in the world”.
Muisbosskerm, derives it’s name from a shelter being built from a bush called “Muisbos”, by the native herdsman, that migrated during the different seasons to pasture and water.
Brainchild of Edward & Elmien Turner, the Muisbosskerm is situated right on the shore, 5km south of Lambert’s Bay on the Elands Bay Road.
Here the Turner family will treat you, true to their lifestyle, to some of the West Coast’s most sought after seafood dishes, always fresh from the sea.
The West Coast, well known for its crayfish and different kinds of fish, baked, smoked or grilled.
From the traditional “waterblommetjie” and “hotnotskool bredie”, to the ever fresh homemade potato yeast bread, straight from the the clay -oven, with butter and the region’s famous “Hanepootkorrelkonfyt.
These are just a few of the dishes you can choose from during this 2 – 3 hour buffet meal.
The restaurant is not open every day, therefore it is extremely important to make a reservation first. We only prepare meals once 15 people or more have booked, as meals are not “a la carte”. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
