Great wine and prices, the food was great. We arrived without notice and had to wait for a few minutes before being seated, but the view and atmosphere was definitely worth the wait! The prices were so great for us, and we were fully able to enjoy great food and company.

After a much anticipated visit I could not have been more disappointed. Orders not delivered correctly and very unapologetic waiter, not even some acknowledgement from management...Possibly double think your restaurant booking for your next night out in Kalk Bay

We live in the area and after my last visit to the Harbour House, more than a year ago, I had vowed to never go back. Somehow we did end up going back and while our experience was a little better (this time we didn't walk out and actually got served) I still don't see the big draw to this... More

We were in Fishhoek, when someone recommended we come here for lunch - Kalk Bay is a short drive away. Harbour House is next to the pier and is in a beautiful location in a lovely town. It is a busy restaurant. As another viewer said it has various restaurants in one, so is a little confusing at first. We... More

We decided to have a quick lunch at Harbour House today. Situated in the Klak Bay harbour, they have three distinctly different restaurants. A take-away, a mid-range place called live-bait and harbour house on the top overlooking the harbour. Tried live-bait first and was told by the manager they were fully booked even though they had three empty tables. He... More

We stopped here with a tour, but the food was excellent - sushi, lobster & specials. The bonus was the harbor seal down below. Excellent choice on the way back from Cape of Good Hope.

Our tour guide brought us to Harbour House on our honeymoon for lunch. As we pulled into the parking lot, i was blown away by the marina and the incredible views. The food was delicious. We ate the kingklip and prawn dishes. we also had some incredible white wine that our server recommended. The views were simply spectacular. We felt... More

Watching the seals playing in the surf enhances the great experience of eating at this terrific restaurant in South Africa. The food was as fresh and delicious, and of course the wines were local and fabulous. Service is exemplary and altogether this is a great place to eat and/or have a celebration
