“Table 67”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The Last Word Constantia booked this for us. Best table in the house, right in the front corner with the best view. We had strong easterly gales so the sea was crashing on the rocks below and spraying the windows. Just the place to have a fantastic fresh fish dinner. Good price and excellent staff.

“Tremendous Range of Cuisine w/Remarkable Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

The Harbour House Restaurant in Kalk Bay is a 45 minute drive from Cape Town and offers a magnificent range of cuisines. They offer Asian, Seafood & Meat. The staff are extremely friendly and the waiters are very efficient and nice. The view is very good, offering a wide view over False Bay. The atmosphere is terrific and the food and drinks are extremely cheap. I recommend going to the Harbour House in V & A if you are staying at Cape Town as it is far closer but a visit to either is recommended.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

This is possibly one of the best restaurants i have been to, everything about it is perfect, the location, surroundings the staff and the food, what more could anyone ask for, im from London in the UK and in the Navy as a chef so spend a lot of time travelling around the world and eating in different restaurants and it does not get much better than this, wow what an experience.

“Spectacular location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

Wow- what a beautiful setting. Right on the water, waves crashing up on the rocks and big glass windows, just amazing. We had the seafood platter for one, and thank god we only ordered that!! There was enough seafood to feed an army! Lovely experience but the food wasnt as good as the harbiur house in V & A.

“Fantastic food, wonderful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Such a gem of a restaurant. The menu is superb. Waiting staff are helpful, informative and friendly. Food was simply delicious. Relatively pricey but on holiday from UK so actually incredibly good value. Would definitely revisit if back in Cape Town. Good wine list, lovely view.
