Dear Drew M

Thank you for your feedback.
The presence of rodents in any working fishing harbour, anywhere in the world, is unfortunately a reality of life, but we have never before been told, nor have we observed, that they are everywhere. We therefore must take issue with that aspect of your statement. Whilst we do our utmost, via our contracted pest control company, Ecolab, to prevent surprise interactions between rodent and guest, and generally do succeed at this, it is possible that due to the current ongoing renovations of the premises that ingress may have occurred. We have requested both the pest control company and the Harbour authorities to re-double their efforts.

If you want to have a bit of a splurge and yes, it is expensive, but when you're sitting right at the waters edge with waves splashing against the window, its pretty cool. Service was fantastic and the food just superb!

We were in Cape Town recently and on two occasions ate at Harbour House. Their margaritas are the best and the food was excellent, were given a great table overlooking the sea and had a roaring fire right near us which on the chilly cold nights are needed in Cape Town. Great ambience and excellent service.
