Harbour House review 2 Users say 3/5 Rate it

It's a case of out-of-the-boat-and-into-the-pan at this popular restaurant on the lip of the Southern Peninsula. The prawn and avocado tian is a popular choice for starters, and the spicy calamari isn't bad either. Things are kept simple for the main courses, with the fresh line-caught fish the star and chermoula prawns packing a flavourful punch. If you prefer land-bound delights, there's ribeye steak. This place is right on the rocks so expect some super-snappable sunsets.

Worth the drive from Cape Town, to Kalk Bay. Fresh food and nice setting , not always perfect because they are always too busy but the sea view and the fresh food is a plus.
Relax atmosphere.

A very disappointing experience at Harbour House on Friday 27 th December. Service shocking. Waiter asked if he could bring us our bill when we hadn't even finished our drinks and then at 11.15pm on a FRIDAY night between Christmas and New Year we were asked to leave our table. Waiter pointed in a direction and said we could continue in the lounge. Well he clearly knew the bar in the lounge was closed AND the cushions had been taken off the chairs in preparation for closing. Shocking - MUCH better service from Ocean Basket and the Spur!!!! Don't eat here, just go for a drink and soak in the setting.

It was my special birthday celebration last evening and we had a bad experience at the Harbour House in Kalk Bay. Not only were we shuffled 3x from table to table, and then asked to sit in the Lounge - when we were eventually seated, we were not approached for our order or drinks for half an hour. I spoke to the Manageress (I think her name was Wardah?), she made no attempt to get service to our table.
We were told of the specials, - I then ordered Kingklip (one of the specials) and was then told that it was 'sold out' (after just having been told it was available). The Manageress never came to our table to check if we were fine and everything was ok. Not the best 60th Birthday restaurant experience. The setting is so special and
maybe staff trade on that ?
