We visited Muriel's Munchies over the Easter weekend. It was our second visit, and there was a reason we came back - their delicious burgers. They were tasty, big and great value for money! Also best to sit upstairs as you will have a great view of the Hout Bay harbour

We thankfully avoided the tourist trap of Mariners, as we found it extremely expensive and tightly packed with smokers, and found Muriel's offered exactly what we felt like eating to "fill the gap". Although not a madly welcoming building, the rooftop view more than made up for that. It comes with a fabulous vantage point of the bay, the boats... More

This great little café was situated right next to the harbour overlooking the boats and the seals, it was so much nicer and relaxed eating here rather than the tourist traps like Mariners Wharf which we walked out of (so noisy with everyone squashed together on the outside deck blowing smoke inn your face!). Muriel's Munchies has a great top... More

A cozy place to refresh yourself after a walk around the Harbour area. Can sit upstairs for a view or downstairs. Nothing fancy and we just felt at home. Not a fancy restaurent just a place to chill and relax. No hurry to get us out after our meal was over. I like that. Will definitely be back there to... More

Unassuming cafe on the quayside ..their fish & chips are a benchmark for any in the country ..tasty and cooked to perfection! Repel any inclination not to patronise due to uninviting appearance of the exterior ..a hidden gem!

This value-for-money eatery in Hout Bay is an interesting variation on a harbour restaurant in so far as you order from the kitchen counter and then go to your table where your food is delivered to you. We enjoyed a well-prepared traditional breakfast and a hake & calamari combo. Good food at excellent prices with a great view over the... More

We sat on the top level at Muriel's Munchies on a very hot day to enjoy the view and have an ice cream and a drink. Super-friendly staff. Watched kids playing in the harbour and enjoyed conversation with interesting people. What was impressive was that someone at The Wharfside Grill recommended Muriel's Munchies as Wharfside Grill was not serving drinks... More

Muriel's is a no frills modified catering shed to describe it in a nutshell. The service is friendly and on occassion they will go out of their way to accomadate you. The food is simple but tasty and portions are good sized. Seating is on benches either "downstairs" with no view or upstairs where the view is inspiring. Dining is... More

My boyfriend and I had from a local Capetonian that Muriel's Munchies is the best so we sought it out and were not disappointed. It was super tasty. The portion was so big that we chose to split one order of hake and chips and we both felt fully satisfied. All that and there's a shaded rooftop with great views.

Had lunch on a Friday afternoon. The view from the top siting area is nice. The food is not too fussy. Its just what someone needs and the prices are fair. There is also a wide variety to choose from.
