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.

Most restaurants are closed on a Monday night in Simon's Town. Out of desperation we opted for the Harbourview restaurant, which appears to be more of a cafe style eatery. We were pleasantly surprised. Despite being very quiet, the waiter was very attentive, the service excellent and the food fantastic. I love having my expectations exceeded, and Harbourview did exactly... More

My better half is very sensitive to light, so eating outdoors is rarely an option for us. However, on the cloudy day that we visited, he was able to endure a spot outside under the awning and we had a lovely view of the pier. Unfortunately, the birds also found the place a delight and were somewhat of a nuisance.... More

We had lunch here during a tour and the guide recommended it. We ate outside upper deck with a gorgeous view of the boats and the harbour. We had line caught Hake with lovely crispy batter and homemade chips. Less then £15 for two and 3 drinks. Delicious.

On a Monday night, when several other places were closed, my friend and me had dinner here. We ordered the Catch Of The Day, a grilled Yellowtail with chips and salad. Compared to other restaurants we had visited on our tour of South Africa of rather low quality and overprized. You definetely pay for the view here (which was nice)!... More
