A visit to Harbour House in Kalk bay is an absolute must when staying in Cape Town. We turned up without a reservation and were seated straight away on a table for two on a private balcony. We could see the ocean and seals just below our table! The food was fabulous - although predominately a sea food restaurant meat... More

Excellent first course and a fish worthy of your money; i am portuguese, so very critical of fish and sea food, and i must accept other ways of cooking. I wonder i you dont have sardines, since with such cold waters they should be good... Very nice waiters and good wine. Hope to comeback. Cheers

Went for lunch, got the best table on the first floor in the far corner, with dual aspect windows, feeling you are almost sitting on the sea. Although we were told we had to be out by a certain time, we actually had as long as wanted and had a very leisurely delicious lunch. The service was friendly and helpful... More

The location is unbeatable! The appointments, furnishings, ambience is beyond reproach. The food and service was really good but sadly my partner and my son's wife were ill that night and it took days for them to recover. Spoilt the rest of our holiday and I will never go back there because of this experience.

We pre-booked for the 2.30pm lunch sitting. We had an excellent table and were looked after brilliantly by Kevin. The food was, as always, perfect - avocado cocktail, fish of the day and superb wine. We love going to the original Harbour House even though the other two restaurants are nearer to where we live.

In serious need of good Interior Design advice. Austere with harsh lighting. Fails to exploit its great location. Food was good. Sevice was terrible. Party of 6 adults at a quiet second sitting. Yet it took over one hour between starter and second course. Then coffees arrived 15 minutes before desserts!

On our way back from Cape Point/Cape of Good Hope we drove to Kalk Bay follwing recommendations of various friends and became very happy with our decision. Great place to be even though they might have some parking problems. If you like seafood this is a place to be. Loved it and the service was indeed very, very nice and... More

We always take our clients to this specific seafood restaurant and each time without fail, they would rate Harbour House as one of the top seafood restaurants in Cape Town. Spectacular views of Kalk Bay harbour together with good food is an excellent combination!

The setting is sublime, almost on the water in the quaint Kalk Bay harbour. In summer there are two dinner sittings, an early before 8pm and an 8pm. Our small group could only book for 8pm. A number of menu items were no longer available as the earlier sitting had depleted the stocks, the positive twist is that food is... More
