The service and the food at Lookout was fantastic. The rib and calamari combo can be recommended. The view over the Harbour was great but only if if sit on the lower front deck.

Hout Bay is just one of the most charming 'villages' along the Atlantic seaboard and it has a magnificent 1km long beach. Leopard Rock at the one end and the harbour at the other. Great to walk/sun tan - enjoy!

The drive along Chapman's Peak north to Hout Bay is beautiful, views are amazing. Lots of places to stop and get out to take photos. The lookout point is close to Hout Bay and has plenty of shade and picnic tables.

Without doubt one of the wonders of the world on a fine day. Blue skies, deep blue waters, white beaches and green mountains. Does it get any better?

Look back from here at the Beautiful Hout Bay. A great stop to have a birds view of Hout bay. Travel to Chapmans Peak to get to this view.

We loved the view to Hout Bay from the lookout. Although it is a touristy spot and people come to you to sell stuff it is worth a stop, especially on sunny days to enjoy the panoramic view.
