The menu has something for everyone and some really interesting dishes inspired by travels to other lands. We however only went for a breakfast. The food was average but the service was good and we had a great view of the harbour from our table. We might be back in the evening to sample the interesting main course offers.

My partner & I recently celebrated our 2nd anniversary & chose this delightful restaurant to celebrate our special occassion! We were about the first to arrive at 7.30pm on a Friday evening & thought it to be too quiet but as the evening progressed it did get rather busier! We had a good table by the window with views of...

Mandy and I were flying on an early Sunday evening flight from Port Elizabeth and were looking for somewhere to eat before getting to the airport. We saw the Port Captains House from the main road en route. It looked good and there were several customers already eating there. Our motto is never stop at an empty restaurant - it's... More

Recently we traveled to the Cape from KZN and because of the road conditions we were delayed. As we were a large crowd of 12, I had pre-booked all our accomodation and restaurants a month in advance. Seeing that we were not going to make our pre-booked engagement at Gingers in PE, we found Port Captains House on line and... More

Good lunchtime specials are available during weekdays but don't expect anything special apart from the price. The chicken Curry, although tasty, was not authentically like Cape Malay, nor Indian curry. It came without sambals except for a dash of chutney on the food and it was served in a deep soup plate! Didn't look at all appetizing! Fish and chips... More
