Description: Food, Fun, sea and sun are the essence of this spectacular venue which has views over the Kalk Bay harbour, Simonstown and all the way across False Bay. Enjoy a meal and drinks with friends in a relaxed and laid back atmosphere literally right on the ocean. During a high tide it is not a rare occasion for the waves to splash up against your table. Choose from our 8 different venues to enjoy a delicious meal or cocktail with a view. The Brass Restaurant & Pubs venue is an iconic institution and is continuously upgrading to ensure complete customer satisfaction. We aim to please!

We ate in 'The Cabin' and stuck to basic burger and chips / fish and chips. Both were great. Good service and atmosphere. Fantastic location. Can't ask for much more!

On the evening we dined there, weather was just perfect! Small restaurant has a lovely, cozy atmosphere. We were led to the table, which was booked for our romantic "evening out" and to our huge surprise, our table directly overlooked the ocean and splashing waves! It truly felt that we are on...an exotic cruise! Food was delicious and ice cream desert served with fantasy and frill. Thinking of popping there again, next time we travel in that area.

During this last summer, we spent many a weekend at the Beach Bistro section of the Brass Bell. We were in heaven, by the sea and in the open air, the kids have just the best time swimming or collecting stones and shells when its low tide or playing in the sand making sand castles in the "beach" area. What an amazing venue. Would love more of a selection on the menu if I had to give criticism. Would love the ribs to be back on the menu next summer. They were the best ribs we have ever had. I know they available inside the restaurant, but we want to be outside in that amazing new set up you guys have created. NOTHING like it. Nothing can top the set up. Well done it looks amazing and every time we have been there it is spotless and perfectly maintained.

Been to the brass bell at least 4 times in the past 4 years and the food comes in large portions whilst the menu isn't the biggest. Great food and great times. The burgers over the pizza for me and the milk shakes are nice.

Just celebrated my 60th birthday party in the Pavilion at the Brass Bell. All contact with management was outstanding, Sophie and Josh were fantastic at service, and the kitchen produced 44 excellent meals. My friends and family were all very complimentary too. This is not the first time I have been to the Brass bell, and certainly will not be the last.
