Delightful seafood in rustic waterfront setting

Party of 4 enjoyed very fresh kingklip prepared two different ways both delicious. Prawn entres also a hit, all enjoyed with nicely priced wine while watching waves splashing over the rocky shore below. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.

It was nice to be back in harbour house and the prawns were very good. You certainly pay for the view and the location. When making a reservation you need to be aware as to where you wish to be seated as you might not end up in the upper part of the restaurant but the lower section of the... More

This restaurant is a must if you are doing a cape drive. It came recommend to me by the guest house we stayed in. The food was fresh and delicious, the staff were very attentive and offered good suggestions. The restaurant over looks the ocean and the wharf, we sat next to a window and watched the seals play in... More

Our hotel owner suggested we have dinner at Harbour House and we were so pleased we went. We booked for 6.15pm so we could watch the sun set and thanks to the early time, scored a window table. And then I saw the unofficial pet mascot of the restaurant, a lumbering sea lion, looking like a cross between Jabba the... More

Nice waterfront views. Friendly staff with a nice menu. Big groups can be a bit trying on the staff, but they seem to handle them well. A fine place to have lunch and enjoy the views.

There was a table of about 15 we were seated at the top by the window! View was fantastic and food great. The only problem we had was that their was not a great selection of fish that particular day. However we all found something we enjoyed. You must give it a try :)

During our 14 day stay in Kalk Bay this was the best restaurant we dined in. Located in a stunning position overlooking the ocean with seals visible, good food makes this a must visit when in Kalk Bay but advance booking necessary.

Harbour House is a beautiful restaurant in as stunningly perfect a location as is possible for seafood dining. The Atlantic Ocean crashes on the rocks below and often wash over the windows above with lots of playful seals having fun while the elders slope around on any available rock. The space itself is all white and, understandably, the best tables... More

We've been coming to Harbour House for almost 10 years. We don't live in Cape Town, but always come back here for a full package- great food, good service, spectacular setting and many good memories. We love dining at top Cape restaurants and seen many rise and fall. Harbour House is always good and often better than great. Last night... More
