is situated directly opposite of Grotto Beach. Grotto beach is one of the most striking South African beaches and has Blue Flag status. With a picturesque view of the ocean, the backdrop of Olifantsberg becomes illuminated as the sun sets. There is no doubt that Dutchies is surrounded by the exquisiteness of nature. Owned by Joke Gonggrijp and her son Daan, their desire is to share the many experiences this unique spot has to offer with you. Not only is the view truly breathtaking, but the menu offers a range of dishes from freshly cooked seafood, a touch of Dutch cuisine, tapas, sushi and an extensive cocktail and wine list.
Enjoy a refreshing breakfast in the early hours of a beautiful day; share a lovely lunch in the middle of the day, or delight in a delicious dinner while the sun slowly sinks into the ocean. In the summer months, the restaurant extends into a summer lounge closer to the beach, where you can feel the sand between your toes while sipping on cocktails. Joke and Daan’s philosophy is to offer customers good service, good food and good atmosphere.
There is a saying in Dutch that says “Gezelligheid kent geen tijd”, it could be described as the same in English when we say “Time flies when you’re having fun”. However, this Dutch saying has even deeper meaning, when we are Gezellig it’s making time for each other, for connecting with people, for exchanging dreams and enjoying each other’s company. Gezellig is the heartbeat at Dutchies, it is a place where you can enjoy your dinner and glass of wine in an atmosphere that appreciates the beauty and culture of gezelligheid!
