Freddy had been visiting this place with the staff of The Volvo Ocean Race. He loved the place so much that he wanted to bring us here too, which we are very grateful for as it was amazing!

Just 125km up the Cape West Coast lies Die Strandloper, an open air, very casual restaurant with sand underfoot, blue skies above, and at the water's edge, a magnificent view of Langebaan Lagoon. To the accompaniment of live traditional guitar music, meals are served in individual courses extending over a leisurely three to four hour period. The central focus is an open braai area where everything from black mussels in wine to "really strong" coffee takes its turn. Traditional treats include, paella potjie rich in calamari, angel fish, grilled haarders, smoked angel fish, snoek with sweet or steamed potato, plus waterblommertjie bredie.
