“Luv this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years, mainly for special occasions as it involves a 50km drive to get there.

The food is always good and I just love the view over the small recreational harbour. Booking is essential on weekends and you MUST ask for a table by the window.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Went on Monday night, about 5 tables. Only one waitress who had to do the drinks as well and was really trying her best. Steak was off........ Sent it back and second time better . Fish was ok but not value for money. No atmosphere. What a pity no decent fish restaurants in Gordon's Bay, Strand or Somerset West.

“Average food that's a bit pricy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

A lovely view from this restaurant good service from the two waitrons but the food was average and a bit overpriced. However it has a quieter more intimate venue than the nearby Tavern.

The view is stunning. The food and ambience god indeed. Maybe just a little pricey, but not over the top

“Poor and Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have been dining at Harbour Lights annually for about 10 years but were greviously disappointed at our latest visit there last night (Jan 15, 2013). Our food was very poor with everything covered in thick cheesy sauce, service was slow and dishes were literally thrown on the table by our waiter, it was the most expensive meal we have had in the Helderberg area, the corkage charge of R70 is way more than that charged by other establishments and, to cap it all, they do not allow customers to use their wifi while dining.
Altogether a most forgettable experience, we felt conned out of nearly R700 and will not be returning any time soon
