Been here twice now, great view & location. Service slow, food quality poor. What a pity because it has so much potential to be a fantastic fresh seafood restaurant.

We love going to The Chart Room (or The Yacht Club as we call it). Lovely bar with large deck overlooking the busy Port Elizabeth harbour with several draft beers available and decen wine by the glass or bottle. The restaurant also sits perched overlooking the harbour from every table. The food is always of a high caliber and their... More

We waited for any service and them for our starters. My wife ordered carpaccio without pesto and it arrived covered in pesto! From then on, things improved and the food all arrived as ordered. The food iteself was good - well cooked and decently presented. The fish was very good. The overally cost represented good value for money.

We had lunch at the Chartroom and although the food was good did not have the same overall experience as two years ago. The fish was excellent but the service and helpfulness of the personnel was absent.It seems that the establishment including the furniture and personnel is in need of an upgrade.

This is a really great place to visit if you would like to have some fish. Make a reservation because this place is always busy. There is a great relaxed atmosphere here with great views of the harbor.

Was invited for a lunch at the restaurant. I last ate here many years back. The first impression is the beautiful views over the harbour. Had a beer and ordered a simple Burger. I was pleasantly surprised that it was one of the most tasty burgers I have had in ages...(on a par with a Roco-mamas) My friend had a... More

Have been there on numerous occasions and consistently good! Another great seafood restaurant and their ribs and steaks are great too! Went there today with some lady friends - 12 of us in all. The restaurant was very busy, but our food came out in good time and all at the same time AND it was very good!

We were at The Chartroom last night for a family birthday celebration. The restaurant decor is very dated and could do with a refurb. We were a party of 6 and we all enjoyed our food which was tasty, well cooked and reasonably priced. The service from our waitron was very disappointing - we couldn't get anybody to notice when...

For a good meal overlooking the small boat harbour in Port Elizabeth, I recommend that you try the Chartroom at the Yacht Club. Their forte is sea food, but they offer many more options and all are tasty and reasonably priced.
