delicious and probably the freshest seafood you can have, right by the harbour! be prepared, no plates and plastic cutlery, but that's what makes it awesome. food is wrapped in paper, not newspaper so relax it's clean! self service, we got there and luckily there was a short queue. sat down, had hake, calamari and chips, perfect! once done, dumped all the paper, cutlery and bottles in their relevant recycling bins and left satisfied!

The food is fresh, well-cooked and superb value for money. The Yellow Tail is especially good. Large portions of chips - we should have shared! Nice views to the harbour.

Simple fish and chips but one can also get calamari and prawns. This is not a great place for fresh fish, lots of chips wrapped in paper. Great for a quick cheap meal with kids. Its situated at the harbour so a walk around the harbour (look out for Rosie the seal) and along the pier is great. Also a good idea to splurge on drinks upstairs at Harbour House for a fantastic view. A millionaire drink and a tramp's (but tasty) meal. Delicious!

Our first choice for dinner at Kalk Bay was too full to even try so we tried harbour house lucky fish. The place is not fancy but the prices are reasonable. We had the hake and chips and the portions were generous. The fish was fresh but for some reason I just could not feel any real taste to it. Perhaps it is the batter. In any case with plenty of lemon juice and salt the flavor improved.

There were other choices in the menus that we did not try and they also had samosas and good ciabatta bread. Another good point is that we did not have to wait long for our food to arrived fish and chips all mixed in and wrapped in paper.

Service was relatively fast and friendly. I just could not understand why a piece of fry fish that looks so good and is fresh does not have much flavor. I have had better fried fish in other restaurants in South Africa. That said I would go back to this place if some of the other more popular restaurants in the area are too full to bother.

Apart from the fact that I was the only customer there and I had to wait till the lady at the till finished her very funny conversation, the fish tasted like absolutely nothing. Can someone be brought in to show you how to make a batter? Got home and saw they got my order wrong. Really?
