lots of busy restaurants nearby but this one was not and I guess its because its relatively pricey, theres a rather sterile atmosphere and although the service eand wine list was good, it wasn't a place on my go to again list

Pescarne was sold and has been bought by a fantastic couple who have changed it's name to Grill Under Milkwood. Great food, great service and reasonably priced. Our first choice for a meal out in Hout Bay.

First of all we ordered the Halloumi ! It saltier than the sea ! Really bad !! Which put us off our main course, which again was below average ! I asked if the seafood was fresh ! It wasn't ! Microwaved mussels and frozen calamari

We decided to give Pescarne another go even though we had 2 bad experiences previously. We had friends staying and been to our usual favourites but should have heard the warning bells when everywhere in Hout Bay was more or less fully booked and they didn't have a single booking. Everything we seemed to want to order they didn't have... More

So much potential and never reached. Poor service, shocking hygiene and sub standard food. Out of stock on Oysters, bland under sized prawns and no sauces offered with the prawns. Very disappointing - avoid at all costs.

Where do I start! Our first two choices of wine were unavailable. The waitress then took our order for starters and then inexplicably rushed off without a word to take another order. We were left with menus in hand confused. After 20 minutes she returned to say that 2 of the 4 choices were unavailable, so we re ordered and... More

Went there for my husbands birthday dinner, we sat outside which was very pleasant. The service was good, as was the food we ordered. There was four of us and all enjoyed what we ordered. Would recommend this restaurant.
