About Bientang's Cave

Known as one of the most unusual restaurants in the world, Bientang's Cave offers you the opportunity to feast on the freshest of fresh fish whilst watching the whales just 10 metres away!

Bientang's Cave Seafood Restaurant is situated on the shores of Walker Bay and is carved into the depths of a century old cave extending over the rocks almost to the water's edge. Bientangs is in the heart of the best land-based whale watching area of the world and is a prime tourist attraction in one of the most beautiful Marine Reserves in the Western Cape, overlooking the only whale sanctuary on the African Continent.

Famous for their excellent bouillabaisse soup and fresh linefish grilled on on an open fire, enjoy fresh oysters and fine wine with the waves lapping at your feet at their oyster bar on the rocks. Bientang's Cave offers a full a la carte menu consisting of various seafood, daily specials and a variety of delectable desserts and coffees. The fantastic selection of wines, which are stored in the unique, natural cellar located in the inner depths of the cave have received two Merit Awards, two Platinum Awards and a Gold Award from Diner's Club in the last few years.
