We arrived for the Nautical Festival on the 1st May (scheduled from 26th Mar & to end the 3rd May). We didn't see any Festivities in and around the port. Perhaps everyone took the holiday off? The port was extremely quiet and not exciting at all. We did drive by a surfing competition in Cape St Francis and signage advertising... More

Wonderful setting looking out over harbour. Great food, great decor, great vibe - romantic or with friends and family. A must do when you in St Francis area. Upmarket but relaxed - good selection on menu - great fish dishes

The Port at Saint Francis is very relaxing. It was a shame all the Chukka boats were in Port due to the Red Tide. Well worth a visit.

What an amazing place to stay, especially if you have a boat. The canals are of a dream, if only I could live there.

This was our first time being here. I love yachts and fishing boats. We sat down for fish and chips and calamari. Food was delicious and fresh and not pricey. Then we took a stroll around the port. It was lovely and we just couldn't stop eyeing the boats. And looking over the wall at the ocean. Ocean was peaceful... More

A new approach to eggs benedict, loved the meal, loved the view and enjoyed the service. Do yourself a favour and don't overlook the deli section for some take-away jalapeno and parmesan dip ;)

This is a quaint spot to visit and perhaps have a meal at the restaurants overlooking the boating activities.

Very interesting visit. Good restaurants. The chokka boats are facinating. We enjoyed our swim at the private beach. Try and do the two harbours walk you will not be sorry. You will be lucky to view the cape otter.

It was great views, see chokka baots in the harbour. Just make sure wind is not strong, as much nicer if you can sit outside at ons of the restaurants. Can a bit dead in quiet times it seems (or when weather is not good).
