Nice tourist restaurant. Good food and drinks and a nice bar and restaurant. Located in the harbor and on the water, the Harbour House offers great views. It's easy to find and is surrounded by great shopping and photo opportunities.

Me and my wife eat dinner at this place the first day of our holiday and the food was really good and the staff was friendly. On the top of the restaurant they have a really good rooftop bar were it's perfect to have a drink or a glas of wine before dinner and you also get the sun here.

What kind of owner would agree to having the lights off for a whole hour? A pitch dark restaurant is NOT a good idea even if it is helping to save the planet! No sign up, no apology, a bit of a joke trying to read the menu.We couldn't see the food either. The meal wasn't bad but not as... More

The menu is small due to it being so popular. DO NOT ORDER THE LANGUSTINES! I did, big mistake. For R280 you get two, yes two! That's four tiny bits of meat when butterflied. My wife had the prawns.... So brilliant it is hard to comprehend that both mains came out of the same kitchen. Service top class, ambience great.... More

Lunch on a sunny warm day, perfect location. Varied menu, with nice portions. Seafood was excellent, as were the red meat dishes. Nothing particularly distinctive, but a good place for a casual meal.

Called in for a quick light meal. Choice was very good and there were options for vegetarians. Price was very reasonable and the service was excellent. Good spot to have a break and get out of the sum and the view helps
