Lovely setting on the outside deck watching the marina, fishing boats and the seals but a very lethargic and uninterested level of service for a weekday lunch! Opted for a bowl of mussels in white wine sauce and got a thick gluggy white sauce (which...More

Good location overlooking the harbor. Get a table at the window so you can see the seals frolicking in the water. The fish was well prepared and tasted great. Chips were crispy and scrumptious. Washed the meal down with a craft beer. Only negative was...More

The lookout Deck Hout Bay has to be one of the best locations, if not the best, in Hout Bay. In the Marina, surrounded by yachts - you could be anywhere on the Mediterranean. But the cuisine sadly just doesn't match the view/location!

Can’t say this is worth the money. Overpriced and poor quality. Fish of the day served with old lemons (possibly from someone else’s plate), poor quality fish for R122 which is overpriced. My mussels were served Au naturel but couldn’t eat the sauce it was...More
