Four of us had lunch at this well appointed restaurant at the Kalk Bay harbour. Although the menu includes meat dishes, we all selected seafood (lobster, langoustines, kingklip and yellowtail). All meals were excellent. The service was efficient and friendly. We were sitting upstairs and had a superb seaview.

Arrived for our 8:30 reservation a few minutes early and was assured we would be seated within 5-10 minutes. Long story short we were not seated until well after 9PM. Not a good start. Our "expedited" order for a fish platter for two took nearly 45 minutes such that it was 9:45 before we were able to eat. The platter... More

Recommended by our hotel, we had a great evening at Harbour House. We were greeted by our Waiter for the evening, Clement, who was excellent throughout. We chose the Sea Breem, which was delicious & the views from our table situated right beside the Ocean were fantastic. The General Manager & his team run a very slick operation & hopefully... More

Without a doubt the finest dining in Kalk Bay and the surrounding suburbs. The location is great and you might sight seals swimming or basking on the rocks. The menu is extensive and the rang of seafood, comprehensive. The white wines complement the delicious fare. Tried to book a repeat visit, but unfortunately the busy festive season would not allow...

Superb food in a fabulous setting. The restaurant overlooks the sea or the harbour depending on which side you get. The menu is extensive and specialises in sea food, which is excellent. The staff are very good and very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The wine list is very comprehensive. Overall it is great value for money (especially... More

So we had a nice spot in this nice restaurant. Service started good with great menu. The starters made expectations even bigger. But than the main courses came, and everything fell apart! Overcooked lam and yellow tail, mixed up salmon with yellow tail and the restaurants day special Langoustines which were also overcooked and Therefore realy overpriced. Keep it on... More

A great place to stop for lunch. A view to die for. Need reserves for dinner but lunch was no problem. Waiter was great as was the wine selection. Sushi was average but the fish on the board looked delicious.

Late Lunch treat! Fresh seafood, nice decor, terrific service with extensive wine list. We had beautiful table for 6 with panoramic view of harbor and ocean, and the food was very good, we all split appetizers so that we were not to full.
