Ons Huisie, which directly translates to “Our Small Home”, is an internationally recognised heritage site in Bloubergstrand now accommodating a world renowned and recognised traditional restaurant. Photographs of the historic owners stretching over more than 130 years can be seen in this wonderfully restored historic building which serves delicious West Coast cuisine.
Ons Huisie stands silent witness to many historical events, including the Battle of Blaauwberg in 1806 overlooking Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 28 years. Ons Huisie is period decorated with many old photographs supplied by resident Blouberg families, showing the transformation of the area over the last 200 years.
The ever popular Ons Huisie is part of the Seascape Collection and boasts spectacular views, delicious, traditional West Coast cuisine, dog friendly facilities and picture perfect views of the Atlantic Ocean and Robben Island. It is recognised as one of the tourist destinations in the Cape Peninsula. Visitors come from across the world and experience our exquisite West Coast cuisine. They always come back for our fish and chips, calamari and mussel pots which are signature dishes.
Ons Huisie has a large children’s playground. Parents have total peace of mind here in that they can enjoy a light lunch with friends while the kids are entertained in a safe, playful area with child-minders on hand.
Our stoep, with a cosy fire place, is the perfect setting to watch the sun go down over the Atlantic while enjoying one of our unique cocktails or something from our craft beer selection.
