We popped in to this restaurant late one afternoon during our visit in town, and should have probably known to turn around when there were no other clients... The air-conditioning was not working at all, and the afternoon sun was hitting the windows directly - so it was scorching hot in there. We figured we'll be served quickly anyways since... More

1. The restaurant is on the harbour. Just to note, though, when my wife and I arrived, I must say, the entrance to the upper floor restaurant, itself, is not very obvious. It is not where the "take away,outside seating" area is but "next door". We were chaperoned very- cordially and efficiently to the correct entrance anyway. Commendable customer service!... More

On our visit to Somerset West we went here for dinner, we had catch of the day. The fish and sides was great, waitress good. We waited long for the food and the atmosphere and decorating was average. For the price we paid I wont go there again

Four of us chose this for a Saturday night out. We had eaten there once before and had judged it 'borderline' as to whether to come back or not. So we gave it another try. Well we have now decided that it is not worth the time or the money. Deep fried Camembert was ok but nothing special. Mussels, totally... More

Very dissapointing. Wine list about as boring as you can get. Advertised that they serve sushi....but didn't have any. Fish was stodgy, over-cooked and we couldn't finish any of the dishes we ordered. Never again!

Food was great! Unfortunately, we got put into a corner, which wasn't great, but we really enjoyed our meal!!!

This was the 4th time that I had been to Harbour Lights and having been satisfied with the service and quality of the food on those previous occasions, I decided to treat my wife and mother to a Sunday lunch. It seemed as though there had been a water leak in the restaurant as there was a bucket and tarpaulen... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time and what a disappointment. Both my wife and I had a crayfish and it was the worst ever. Can even make better ones at home. The staff not friendly at all. Think their name a n location went to their heads

nice to eat at, scenic views and right inside the harbour, plenty of parking and great roads to get there. pretty location, take your camera and tip your waitresses, good is good although a tad bit expenisive, it comes with the upmarket style of the restaurant, afterall you get what you pay for.

They offer a range of fish in several types of sauces which I felt were perhaps a little experimental. The fish was overlooked so made it tough to eat and the sauce was incredibly bitter that it ruined the dish. Friends had other varieties and felt the same about theirs. Larges prawns were very overlooked and made the meal difficult... More
