Charles MacFarland, Ewingsdale

I’m not entirely dismayed about the Scarrabelottis Lookout becoming the site of a deluxe restaurant, because I can imagine how pleasant it would be to have a meal with such wonderful views all around.

However, I am a bit worried that I might never get to eat there, because it may become a function centre for deluxe weddings. This happened to my beloved Fig Tree Restaurant here in Ewingsdale, another high-class restaurant with great views. It became almost impossible to eat there, because it was nearly always booked out by a wedding celebration. Then it burned down.

I suggest the Council try to make some provision that the restaurant really will be for the general public, as indeed the view was intended to be.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. The most sensible comment I have read on this matter. I would hope too it’s open into the evening to enjoy sundowners at sunset and a meal with moonlight over the Cape – it is such a magnificent view.
