The venue does not have a bar but patrons are allowed to bring their own alcohol and picnic baskets. Hearty soup and homemade bread are normally available, but must be pre-ordered.

The Cottage Club

"Situated in Kommetjie, a dramatically beautiful area where savage terrain cascades into a seething ocean, the Cottage Club is a blend of upmarket bohemia and mellow aestheticism."
