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

The first thing that put me off was It took me forever to get hold of someone to make the initial booking. On arrival I loved the set up really unique and romantic. The staff... 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.

The deck restaurant seating looks unto the yachts and ocean so great view even if weather is unpleasant! We had calamari, prawn and fish and everything tasted soooo gooood. The portions are generous with a option of two sides with the meal. The staff was very friendly and food came fast. Will definitely visit again - great value, taste and... More

Positives: Being on the PE harbour, one would expect very fresh fish and the Chartroom Restaurant (Yacht club) doesn't disappoint. The panoramic views of the harbour create a lovely atmosphere for a sunny seafood lunch. Negatives: Unfortunately, the restaurant is a bit dated and lacks decor, resulting in it feeling like a cafeteria or eating hall. The security entering the... More

We visited The Chartroom twice in the last 2 weeks and on both occasions we had tasty, well cooked food. I always have a burger - the tastiest homemade burger in PE, and the rest of our table had the hake and calamari combo either grilled or fried. All our food was beautifully cooked and well presented. The service was,... More
