Welcome to The Beach Hut Restaurant

The Beach Hut Restaurant is situated in the heart of the old Ballito Villlage, down by the beach. Our menu is British based with an emphasis on fresh, quality and locally sourced ingredients. The Beach Hut is open everyday from 7am - 3pm, where we operate as a Cafe (European style) and we open on Friday and Saturday for dinner, with more of a Bistro set-up.


The chef and owner, Michael Ovens, born and bred in Scotland, brings along traditional British fare in a relaxed and homely beach house atmosphere. Expect a few Scottish surprises on the menu. Breakfast items include a variety of bruschetta, international breakfast options such as the American (flapjacks, pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs and maple syrup), or the English (pork sausage, black pudding or chips, scrambled eggs, bacon & mushroom mix and tomato onion baked beans).


Lunch options include salads, burgers, fish & chips, gourmet sandwiches and traditional toasted sarmies. The Spicy Pork Belly Burger and the Haggis Burger are highly recommended. Dessert at the Beach Hut is not to be missed – try the Knickerbocker Glory – 3 ERA ice creams, honey, pecan nuts, berries, fruits, biscuit, whipped cream and banana. Some of our ERA ice cream flavours include Charlie Chaplin's Chocolate, Liberace's Lemon Meringue and Marilyn Monroe's Strawberry Meringue. Don't forget to try our homemade frozen lemonade!

The Beach Hut can be hired out for dinner functions. Contact us for more information. Specials vary from week to week. We are now fully licensed for drinks.
