We had dinner at Live Bait. The setting and ambience is great. This restaurant is nestled in the harbour with sea views. We were welcome by friendly staff. The seafood pasta was exceptional good and well priced. I well definitely came back for more.

The restaurant is located in a very peculiar place: an harbor on the sea. If your lucky and there is enough wind you will have wheels crushing in your window. The dinner was lovely as well as the wine and service. A perfect discovery!More

The sole was overcooked, though i did get a generous portion of vegetables instead of chips, as requested. the waitress was willing to be imaginative about my order. Otherwise, not great value, in an uncomfortably hard seat. Great view over False Bay.More
