Are you looking to try some mouthwatering West Coast seafood whilst relaxing in a laidback environment? Well, if you are in the area you should definitely stop in at Die Vishuis and let the food and atmosphere enchant you with its laid back charm.

You will find Die Vishuis nestled along the river bank of the hugely popular ‘Bokkom Laan’ in the quaint West Coast fishing village of Velddrif (15mins drive from Absolute Beach).

The Vishuis makes some of the best seafood in the area and also has a few meaty dishes to keep the carnivores happy. This is one of the restaurants on our ‘short list’ that we recommend to our guests here at Absolute Beach. They serve a variety of seafood dishes, such as hake, calamari, linefish and mussels, all of which are perfectly prepared and of so tasty.

The vibe is chilled and the dress code is casual – zero pretentious, just the way we like it!

This amazing little stretch of the Bergrivier is teeming with birdlife – among them flamingoes, kingfishers, herons and pelicans. In fact Velddrif is a Mecca for birders from all over the Western Cape.
We love to stare out over the river and watch the various birds going about their daily habits. I especially enjoy watching the little Pied Kingfishers diving for their ‘dinner’.

My absolute favorite dish on their menu is the calamari steak, which you can also request to have as strips…personally I prefer the latter. I love to squeeze lemon juice all over them and dip them in Die Vishuis’s yummy homemade tartar sauce – words fail to describe this experience…so try it!

Please note that Die Vishuis is also prepared to put together scrumptious platters and will also cater on request.

Enjoy some fantastic seafood while you sit back and take in a classic Vishuis sunset!
