We tried Haorbour House without succes (did not reserve) so went for a walk and found out this place.
What a nice surprice! Top quality food (young but very good chef) for affordable price.
Service was good, wine list ok, and the menu choices enought to have a lovely dinner.
I totally recommend it.
I have been in Harbour House in V&A Waterfront and The Annex have nothing to envy them.

We really enjoyed our experience at the Annex. The food was the best we had in Cape town, and the wait staff was both very friendly and prompt. The view was beautiful and entertaining as you watch the locals on the pier. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a delicious, peaceful meal.

Great place to go to just for coffee or a special meal. Sit on the raised area under the umbrellas and look out over Kalk Bay harbour to the mountains beyond. If a bit windy one can sit, still outside, but protected. Otherwise, particularly in winter with the fire burning, the restaurant inside is charming. Great food from excellent salads and pastas to kassler chops and fillet steak. Prices are reasonable. It is behind Kalk Bay Books which if you go during the day is well worth a visit.

The Annex is an ideal destination for good quality food among the many touristy spots around Kalk Bay. The food borders on "fine dining" but the experience is far more relaxed. You can be assured of good food in a quiet, cosy (not small) restaurant. When the weather is fine, you can eat outside overlooking False Bay - ideal for lunches. They have a small wine list, but with good quality wines.

Find a table outside on the terrace and you will have a beautiful view of the harbour. Best pasta, great coffee and great ambiance. The menu changes with the seasons and all ingredients are fresh. A great small relaxed place to have a great meal
