Amazing how fresh and decently priced Kalky's are. Large portion size, fresh fish, crispy chips! I want some just typing this :) Just remember this so you dont get shouted at "Dont feed the birds! They poop on my tables" lol

Forget the table clothes, sterling silver and fine napkins, Kalky's is a shack on the sand dunes at the Kalk Bay Harbour - the fish comes off the boats, into Kalky's and onto your plate - the fisherman are likely to be sitting next to you! Great fresh fish, piles of hot "slap" chips (double fried), cold beers, heaven on earth! The staff are all characters, reasonable chance you will get your cheek or butt pinched or goosed, but all in great humour!

'Kalkys' has been mentioned a couple of times as the greatest fish & chips joint. I felt guilty of betraying 'Snoekies' in Hout Bay (my favourite for fish & chips).

There were a lot of people, but the line moved pretty swiftly.

They have a wide variety on their menu, including Snoek heads and grilled tuna. We opted for the hake & chips. The portions were very big, nice big pieces of hake, but sadly not that tasty. The thick batter takes away from the taste. The chips were really nothing special. The condiments on the table is very synthetic tomato sauce, chilli sauce & vinegar. A great sponsorship opportunity for All Gold!

If you are on a budget and want something quick it is OK, but on general I think there are a lot of other places to rather try in Kalk Bay.

They serve large and wonderful portions. We had the fish and chips/ calamari and salad. Very fresh. You see the fisherman unloading the boats and bringing the fish to Kalky's. Picnic table kind of place. Fun atmosphere and the staff were very sweet.

Looking for really good fresh fish, look no further, Kalky's is the place. Their portions are also more than generous. We will be back! Great venue in the picturesque Kalk Bay Harbor.
