Being in Hout Bay 1999, 2006 and now 2015 it is alays a strong recommendation. They operate for more than 25 year and are next to the coast at the end of the harbour. Beautiful view to Chapmans Peak Drive. Time to relax.

I visited early on a Saturday morning and the lines and wait were not too long. Fresh fish and chips, calamari and chips and prawns. A number of combinations that can also be chosen from. I had the calamari and chips and the calamari was fresh and cooked perfectly. Loved it! Ordered the fish and chips as well, also fresh... More

This is a good fish and chip restaurant set in a great place. We visit regularly and have long discussions on the relative merits of Fish on .the Rocks and Snoekies. The former has the advantage of being alongside the sea with great views and attendant seagulls! Always a good selection of fish to choose from, sometimes quite a wait... More

A popular local eatery, Fish on the Rocks had some of the best fish and chips I have ever tasted. The hake, calamari and piri piri prawn allows for the best of everything. Planning to try the market Saturday and will definitely be back at Fish on the Rocks for lunch

You can't go wrong with their fish and chips. Always fresh and crispy, both the fish and the chips which is exactly how I like them. Good value for money!

Always a first stop for me when I am in Cape Town, prices are good. Service is awesome as you don't wait more then 5 mins for your food. There's a great atmosphere in around the place, and it is in the perfect location tucked in behind the bay so it isn't extremely busy. There is ample seating place and... More

What a great place for some really good freshly cooked fish and chips. The ambience bustle and overall experience really is a fun thing! We were served promptly despite it being very, very busy and the portions were generous and well cooked - you could ask for no more!

My family and I went with a friends recommendation to vist Fish On The Rocks. I can confidently say that this was well worth the trip. The venue is busy....which is a good sign. The food is brilliant and the calamari and sole is extra special and highly recommended. Beware of the birds.....they are rather keen on the tasty fish.

If you are up for basic fresh sea food this is the place, you stand in line to place your order while the rest of your group finds a table, it is very busy most weekends of the year. Fish, calamari and chips are all excellent.
