How can you visit the Western Cape and not have calamari at Snoekies. Place is on the dock you can be sure you get the freshest fish and calamari around. Great cheap food. Go hungry.

Always a great place to have a quick bite when in Hout Bay. Fish and chips is really great and the location is perfect.

Great place with kids for lunch, big indoor play area and the helpful electronic pad vibrates when your order is ready, so no need to stand about downstairs with fidgety kids. Food is standard fish and chips, nothing fancy, but it's a winner with kids.
