Kitchen Windows Beach Restaurant

"JBay is not just a place... it's a feeling"

My wife, Lorraine and I, are happy to share this special spot with you.

Come cast your eyes over the waves, the dolphins are regular visitors and certainly makes this

one of the most special places I have ever had the privilege spending time at on a daily basis.

About Kitchen Windows

The name "Kitchen Windows" refers to the surf spot to the right of the restaurant.

Jeffrey's Bay has always been one of the best fishing areas in South Africa.

The fishermen used to refer to the area now called Kitchen Windows as Little Reef.

It became a popular surf spot during the 60's and the spot became known as Kitchen Windows as the surfers of the time looked through their kitchen window to see if the surf was firing.

We are a family-friendly restaurant and believe in family values, good wine and even better food.

We invite you to come and share this experience with us.

We have a grassy lawn to play on in front of the restaurant and kids activity packs available, so please bring the family along.


We believe that food should be enjoyed as it was intended. Fresh, healthy, wholesome and rich in nutrients, not full of hormones, antibiotics and/or unnatural additives.

Fortunately there are farmers who share our philosophy and we are able to serve uncontaminated food, free of all these by-products. We try to use organically grown foods where we can.

Nothing on the menu is prepared in bulk or ready-made. Everything is made on order.

We serve a variety of fresh seafood, matured-steaks, pizza, tapas, vegetarian options, etc.

A children's menu is also available for our younger customers under 12yrs of age.
