Picture The Meeting Place in Simon's Town, False Bay, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa Situated in the picturesque village of Simon's Town along the bustling main road, The Meeting Place restaurant is a rather unique establishment created by talented owner Olivia Gain. The ambience is incredibly relaxed and for many regular clients it is like a home from home, with comfortable couches centred around an old fashioned cast iron fireplace, with plenty of interesting reading material at your disposal. The wall of the restaurant decorated with haphazard frames varying in shapes & sizes provides interest & atmosphere.

In the evenings the ambience is more romantic with candles, fairy lights and the moonlight shining down on the bay. The music is carefully selected and researched and creates a moody environment which seduces. The Meeting Place restaurant boasts an excellent wine list ranging from Cape Point and Springfield Sauvignon Blanc to the famous Diemersfontein Pinotage.

Starters include fresh oysters, West Coast mussels marinated with tomato and chilli vinaigrette, and asparagus with parmesan butter. Main courses at The Meeting Place Restaurant offer Fresh Linefish collected at Kalk Bay harbour served on crushed potato, bella rosa & olives with beurre blanc. Slow roast duck on fresh fruit with an apricot & ginger sauce is very popular. Olivia’s favourite dish is the Seared Tuna served on Asian salad, litchis, pickled ginger & sesame with Japanese mayonnaise. Just a few of the delicious fare served here. There are four desserts to choose from one of which is the famous TMP homemade ice-cream.
