Polana didn't dissapoint once again... great atmosphere, incredible view onto the rocks and across False Bay. Great staff and the best chicken I have EVER eaten in a restaurant. Fair prices too. I'll definitely come back again and again... WOW!

The view, the seating, people there, service and food all just great. Everytime I go there I can't wait for the next time. Just a lovely place to relax, have a drink and share food and chats with friends. Never dissappoints.

We went as a group of 10 and enjoyed a special 180 rand cray fish special, which I am told is an excellent price. The NY cheesecake is quite good as well. Try and get a table by the glass window overlooking the ocean. It practically splashes on your table. The only major downside is that a live band played and its a small restaurant, so conversation was limited.

Great setting, very hard to beat on this planet!! Overlooking the waters edge. Great tapas.. Full menu also not bad.. Can be a little slow during dinner but otherwise great. They have live jazz on a Sunday afternoon and it is a very "in" spot in a Friday or Saturday eve! Must say I love it in the afternoon. Not always easy to find a spot to lounge but if you do you will love it! Just chill and enjoy it.

I have eaten in this place twice in the last week. It is situated on the water looking over the rocks, at the harbour in Kalk Bay. Great chilled out atmosphere with cool music. The staff are very friendly and helpful The first dinner first time was great, second time the food was quite average and fish a bit over cooked, however the atmosphere, location and staff made up for this
