“Ordinary service in great setting”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The setting is sensational, with incredible views. Once we got our meal, it was pretty good. We were there during peak holiday season, on a beautiful day, so they couldn't cope with the number of guests.
I would go again.

“Still one of the best restaurants in Cape Town”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Located in Kalk bay.
Fantastic atmosphere sitting at sea level with big waves breaking into sea pool 20 meters away.
Good food, good portions and good service.
Well worth visiting
Often difficult to find parking and access is through subway under railway line not having street appeal but well worth the walk.
I make sure I visit when in cape town.

“Stunning views!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Stunning views on the table bay side of the peninsula. Food is reasonably priced and good value for money. Staff are friendly and efficient. On Sunday evenings they have bands playing acoustic sets in the main beach bar, get there early if you want a seat!

“Brass Bell By The Sea”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Brass Bell is in Kalk Bay. It is situated literally next to the False Bay ocean waves. There are four restaurants as well as a sports bar. One can have a braai on the ''Beach'' deck or else have a choice of a la carte menus depending on which style of restaurant you prefer. It's all about good food and fantastic ambience

“best thing is the position”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have eaten often at the Brass Bell because the position, on the rocks at Kalk Bay is to die for...but the food is not great, nor is it cheap...but it's a good place to meet for drinks and the view.
