“Amazing Sushi, what a great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Well, what a fantastic restaurant right on the water. I have eaten several times in The harbour house upstairs, but Live Bait has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere but with staff who are really polite and attentive. Our Sushi was amazing, and after my last sushi experience in Franschhoek, this was a breath of fresh air. No fuss, just beautiful food. A definite must visit and great value.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

this is a really good restaurant - the setting is right next to the water and in high tides, the waves actually hit the windows which is exciting! the staff are attentive, the food good and the wine list great

“amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

harbour house in kalk bay is a fantastic place - the location is perfect, right on the harbour. great food, the mozambique style shrimps are lovely, but i guess almost everything else is as well. most fantastic - the setting and the view - in "season" you sit on a panoramic window and can watch wales just a couple of meters away. i have been to cape town 6 times, and have eaten in many beautiful restaurants and settings, but harbour house is my "number one".

“Harbour House outstanding.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Fantastic food, we had the set menu 3 courses @ R170. Very good value.
The most beautifull setting in the Cape Peninsula we booked for the " the 60's corner"

I must commend our waiter "Justin" who made it an even more pleaseant experience. Pleasant, attention to every detail, knowledge of the menu, good suggestions, service with a smile. 10 out of 10. Well done keep up the good work.

“Delicious food and amazing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We went to have our engagement dinner here and were not disappointed. The restaurant is set right on the shore looking out on the waves coming onto shore. We were recommended the seafood platter by a friendly waiter and were really amazed. Although we only had the seafood platter for one person, it was plenty enough for the both of us. A really nice meal!
