The Grill Under the Milkwood has recently opened in the Red Sails building on the Main road in beautiful Hout Bay. With the aim to look after the locals, this gem of a restaurant is a family-friendly steakhouse with an affordable menu.

The restaurant space has recently been upgraded and now boasts a cosy interior with a fireplace for those chilly evenings and a spacious wooden deck outside under the Milkwood tree, from which the restaurant got its name.


The leaves of the Milkwood provide dappled shade should you want to enjoy a bit of sun and umbrellas are available for scorching hot days. During the Winter months, diners can sit around the fire pit with a fruity glass of red to warm up. The Grill Under The Milkwood has already developed a reputation for incredible steaks. They believe in great quality food and every plate they deliver is fresh. The owners are very involved in the running of the restaurant and are gracious hosts.


The menu is substantial and offers all the usual options - a range of cold and hot starters, salads, burgers, steaks, seafoods and desserts. Being a Steakhouse, the range of steaks occupies most of the menu, with traditional rump, sirloin, and fillet served in 200g, 300g or 400g portions. Specialities at The Grill Under The Milkwood include the Sirloin Cheddapamerella, a tender sirloin steak topped with a cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella cheese sauce. The Smoked Mussel Steak is also worth a mention - sirloin steak decked with smoked mussels and overlaid with a red wine sauce. 

Desserts are also plentiful at The Grill Under The Milkwood and favourites include the Chocolate Valcano, the Southern Red Velvet and the Mississippi Mud Pie. Laced Ice Creams and Coffees are a special treat for the adults.
