Fabulous food and stunning views

Another friend recommended this restaurant and we were glad we gave it a try! We went at lunchtime and had no problem getting a large round table for 14. Mainly a fish based menu with a couple of meat dishes and when asked they also did a kids menu. We didn't have starters but the main courses were... read more

Towards the end of January I visited with friends. Service was poor and at the end of our visit, despite having mentioned that I needed to get to the airport, it transpired that we all surrendered to gesticulating madly trying to capture the watron's attention. Finally the bill arrived, but being pressed for time it regrettably wasn't checked. I should... More

We went to Harbour House after a day trip to Cape Point upon recommendation of a good friend. Our expectations were fully met. The ambience of the restaurant is great with its beach look. Our good and especially the service was excellent! Don't miss the salmon roses as a starter and then maybe the fresh tuna as a main. Desert... More

Excellent food and service. In fact the service was the best we have experienced during our 10 day stay in the area. Crayfish and Kingklip super fresh and perfectly cooked. Good wine selection and lively atmosphere with great views. We stayed in Knysna in July and ate comparably good seafood for literally half the price - hence my comment regarding... More

Had dinner with wife in this great restaurant right on the edge of the sea. Oysters were to die for and the line fish Devine. Only issue was that we felt rushed(main course was there 30 seconds after stare had been removed). All in all really worth it. Make sure you book and try to turn up early as they... More

Initial impression from the front desk was quite impolite and cold. The lady who received us downstairs spent far too long looking for our names on the booking list, with no smiles or apologies. Once we were seated, everything was sublime. The starter (prawn tian) and mains (grilled line fish of the day) we would rate 9/10. Dessert was slightly... More

The view! Beautiful view of Kalk Bay and mountains, ocean waves crashing on the other side. The food and dessert we had were great, but the view is what really sells this place!

This is a popular restaurant with a fantastic view of the ocean and it is best to make a reservation. The fish dishes in particular are very tasty and the white wines on the wine list are representative of some of the best in the Cape. Unfortunately service here is a bit slow. I will return to this restaurant in... More

Friends over from the UK, so we took them here. Beautiful table, overlooking the rocks and the seals. Restaurant looks beautiful. Service was excellent. Seafood TO DIE FOR. A really, really wonderful experience.

Great food, lovely watching the seals outside the restaurant. I particularly liked my creme brûlée, and watching my son eating his first oyster. 😄
