Very nice restaurant, although best to book for any time of the day. Service excellent. Ordered the Seafood Pasta which included Mussels. Specifically asked no Mussels to be placed in it as I am severely allergic unfortunately. Meal arrived happily tucking in when waitress came running over asking me to stop eating as they had given me a Seafood Pasta... More

Outstanding food, excellent views of the ocean and wonderful service. Not the first time we have visited and it will certainly not be the last. Delicious kingklip, the prawns were delicious and their take on a steak tartare is recommended. Their daily specials are outstanding too. Desserts are a work of art. Sadly the red tide stopped our crayfish and... More

We had the linefish of the day and it was excellent. Service was very good but I think what makes this restaurant is looking out over the sea.

This restaurant is absolutely stunning. We booked a window table and went early in the evening to make full use of the view. The waves crashing below is so special and we were even treated to some seals hopping onto the rocks below us to have a scratch. The service was very friendly. The sushi was great - always nice...

My husband and I are from Louisiana where the seafood is some of the best in the world so when we travel to other countries and sample their seafood we are often disappointed. We LOVED our meal at Harbour House and will certainly go back on our next visit to Cape Town! We shared a seafood meal for 2 that... More
