We had a nice table at the water front and we had a real fantastic fish. Staff very friendly. As we were a little to early we got a drink on the terrace. You have to do a reservation and ask for a table with a view on the sea.

We arrived on time but Cedric, the waiter advised us that if we relaxed at the bar he would find us a better placed table. A bottle of bubbly later and he told us about the menu, we were persuaded to have the seafood platter and weren't disappointed. The table was right next to the window and that was exciting... More

During my recent trip to South Africa I ate at the Harbour House twice, once with a friend and the second time as part of a group of 5. The experience was consistently good. The service is great and the staff know their menus. The food quality is very good and what I really liked was that despite probably being... More

Before I climbed onto the plane for my 18-hour flight back to London, I needed not only food I would enjoy but a final glimpse at the scenery which is home. So with it drizzling in Pinelands and the wind howling in Sea Point, we turned our attentions to Harbour House in Kalk Bay for lunch! The restaurant whose decor... More

I just didn't enjoy my evening at Harbour House. My cousin, his fiancé, a friend and myself booked a table for a nice evening meal. After being seated in front of the bar, we waited over 20mins to even have the waitress return and offer us drinks. Asked over the bar, but the bartender passed my request to the waitress,... More

We were given the best table in the house - in the far corner of the dining room (which is on the 1st floor of the building), where we were surrounded by glass walls exposing the waves crashing against the boulders below us. The food and wine were excellent, however the service was a bit disjointed and slow, possibly because... More

Habour House has a great location! Unfortunately their food is not up to the location....such a pity as it could be so much more. There were a few issues over the evening....on arrival having booked an early table and no one was there as yet we were asked to take a seat at the bar...they were open so Im not... More

We always go to Harbour House when visiting Cape Town and are never disappointed. The setting is wonderful - right on the edge of the rocks with the waves crashing over and distant views of the Cape. Service is always excellent as is the food. There is a bar area if customers don't want to eat in the restaurant. Not... More

There is nowhere better to eat in Cape Town if you like sea views! Harbour House is perched on the rocks with the waves of False Bay crashing beneath one! We had a great show with the gulls fighting over the scaps from a seal's catch right below us which almost distracted us & the other guests from the delicious... More

Great bar area for pre-lunch drinks - beautifully decorated in blues and white with mountain view. Delicious Prawn starter followed by Kingklip main served by the most efficient waiter - thanks Alex! Fabulous setting overlooking the crashing waves below. Our party of 12 had to be dragged away from this very special spot.
