Three of us ate here on a Sunday afternoon. The view of the water was lovely and the room itself spacious airy. We ate a variety of food- lamb chops, Caesar salad, and prawns. The lunch was reasonably priced. While the food was good, the service was on the slow side which put a damper on the meal.

Firstly let me start by saying that the restaurant and its crew are utterly amazing! My husband and I have a Date Night every few months and have always chosen HH as our destination of choice. However, last night we had our usual Seafood Selection and were left feeling... disappointed and let down. While the view is exceptional to say... More

We were booked in to Harbour House by our guide as a lunch stop on a Cape Peninsula tour. And boy were we happy with the choice. We had a super table in the sunshine overlooking the harbour and had time to enjoy a relaxing and delicious lunch. Just the right amount of choice on the menu including some very... More

I was amazed by the beautiful view. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. I ate the tempura sushi and it was perfect. I definitely think this is a very nice restaurant and eventhough it is pricey it's still worth visiting.

We booked well in time for a table at the window and the view is breathtaking. The food was very good, from the mussels in white sauce, pork belly, king klip, lamb rack to the crème brulee and Strawberry Pimm's. Next time we will book for the last seating. We were quite rushed with the first seating at 18h00, as... More

The atmosphere was good. Often staff were very forgetful. There were flies all over the table, candles did not help at all. Other than that, the food was delicious>

We were staying at the twelve apostles in Camps Bay and were recommended the trip to Kalk Bay just for this restaurant alone and it was well worth it! The restaurant is directly on the sea and has a fantastic view over the ocean - go for the restaurant upstairs as it is more airy and lighter. This view is... More
