Ben’s on the Beach may have all the makings of a stunning beach bar, but it is just so much more. Gorgeous views of False Bay and the Hottentots Holland Mountains, friendly service, and top-class meals are the order of the day here.

Ben’s on the Beach is on Strand’s beachfront, taking full advantage of the breath-taking views and relaxed vibe of the Western Cape. It has been owned and run by Ben, an award-winning restaurateur, and Shirley, his wife, since 2004. Together, they have worked hard in creating a venue that combines a chic design and a laid-back ambience.

The idea has been to offer diners simple dishes, fresh ingredients, and flavours that have integrity. With this in mind, the starter menu comprises hot favourites like skilpaadjies (lamb’s liver wrapped in caul), smoked snoek pâté, chicken livers with bacon and peri-peri sauce, Bobotie samoosas, prawn cocktail, beetroot and goat’s cheese salad, and authentic Dutch bitterballen in a Dijon mustard sauce.

Mains include a wide variety of choices. Try the Turkish-style chicken with cumin and coriander, the hake Parisian, tongue with a red wine jus on mashed potato, grilled steaks (sirloin, rump and fillet), the Mauritian seafood casserole, Tuscan-style pork belly, slow-cooked Greek lamb, or the pork chops with a sweetcorn and pancetta crumble. There is a variety of ways in which your fillet can be prepared; from plain grilled to decadently saucy with innovative flavour combinations.

Diners that want to round off their meal with a sweet treat are spoilt for choice. Crème brulée, New York cheesecake, salted caramel bavarois, vanilla bean ice-cream, and the Ben’s style espresso tiramisu are all fantastic choices, and are just some of the desserts on offer. These options are best savoured with a delicious coffee, espresso or cappuccino.

Ben’s on the Beach is a hotspot for those that want to combine fine food, gorgeous views and a lovely atmosphere during their time in South Africa’s Western Cape.
