It being 1 Januari, we had limited choice of restaurants open and free tables, so we ended at harbor view. A sticky table, dirty glasses, but hey, let's not be difficult. The dim sums were mushy and contained anything but what was on the menu. Up to the main dish. What could go wrong with some grilled fish, we thought.... More

On the menu they charge R110 for basic "fish and chips" and for take away it is only R55. Am I the only one thinking this is bizarre??!! R26 for an... More

You need to book to get a table with a good view as this is part of the atmosphere! The sea food was good and tasty and the service of the staff excellent. Had a lovely time there!

Chic, friendly and excellent sea food and fish. The staff are super knowledgeable and will give you good advise and take you though the menu and the catch of the day. The restaurant is right on the oceans edge with table looking directly onto the rocks and the sea. If you are lucky you will see a seal or two... More

Cheese platter is huge! enough for two people. Very amenable when one of our party only wanted a side salad and chips. Despite being busy service was friendly and reasonably quick. Wine and food price reasonable. Clean toilets. Outside veranda or indoors.

Good food for sure. Had the coffee shake or something along those lines and was amazing. The hake and prawn combo was equally tasty. Overall nice place with good affordable food.

Stopped in for a late lunch and the calamari was plentiful and tasty, if minutely over cooked. Fish was reported as delicious although humungous and a decent portion of chips supplied. View over the harbour was magnificent, but photography not advised due to the number of warships in the naval yard.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat and coffee, lovely sitting in the deck overlooking the harbour. Huge portions!!!! Cheese platter was lovely. Very good prices for UK travellers. Free on street parking opposite. Just a quick bite so can't comment on full meal service.
