We return here year after year and the whole experience gets better and better. The restaurant is very vibrant and busy, the service friendly and helpful and the food is first class. Have the Madagascan prawns. Fabulous.

Awkward location as you would expect more from Kalk Bay. Basically feels to be all about the Harbour House. However, definitely a place worth going. Food ist great, service, too. We were so lucky with Sebastian who made us feel home with all his charme. A place to remember.

As it was a Sunday Luncheon booking we telephoned in advance and were able to be accommodated at 1230 as we requested: if we had wanted a window seat it would have been 3 hours after than before the table was free, but the inside was fine. As we were on a raised section we could easily see the sea... More

Came for lunch with a friend who recommended it, absolutely gorgeous white wood, sofas, we got a table near the window so we could see the water crashing on the rocks and the seals. My friend had a superbe bouillabaisse and I had Kob fisn with vegetables and potatoes. A place to go....

We had dinner at the Harbour House and were amazed by the food. It was hard to choose because the starters seemed so good. So finally we had 2 starters each and a main to share, mainly seafood. This was perfect. Our waiter was extremely kind and attentive. By North American standards, the price is very affordable for this type... More

We visited for lunch and was lucky enough to get a table with a sea view. I would recommend that you rather book a table as they can be quite busy. Excellent food and friendly service. Prices are on the higher end.

Ten of us decided to take a chance and visit for lunch without booking! The restaurant was extremely busy but the staff were so pleasant and asked us to wait while they found a place to set up the table to accommodate all of us. It wasn't long before we were seated and we were presented with an array of... More

The views are superb and you can watch the waves break. The food was good, but not great and likewise the service. Worth a visit but perhaps once on a trip to the Cape could be enough. Reasonable value in South African terms = cheap by UK standards.

We've eaten here twice so far on this holiday, both dinner and lunch. The setting out on the harbour with waves crashing onto the rocks below cannot be beaten. The live music was fantastic. The food was delicious, can't fault it, there's a chance we'll eat there again before we move on to the next leg of our tour.

The meal was pretty good, especially the starters. The main courses were a little heavy on the sauce and potato...nothing very creative. We had a great table overlooking the sea. The entrance is poorly marked. The service was indifferent.
