Description: The restaurant is a local institution, renowned worldwide for the best Calamari in Cape Town, with a popular sun-drenched terrace overlooking the bay and mountains. Calamari at the Chapmans Peak was voted as "one of top 20 things to do in Cape Town".It’s the ideal location for those lingering sunsets and balmy evenings. A sun-drenched verandah boasting spectacular views of the bay offers an alternative eating venue for those wishing to dine Al fresco. And in those winter months, it’s one of few places in the Cape with fireplaces (dating back 100yrs)

A very, very popular restaurant. It's no wonder with the best view in Hout Bay. You definitely need reservations unless you don't mind waiting. My wife and I ate there a few times during our stay in Hout Bay. We always sat at a table on the veranda because that was the best place to people-watch and enjoy the beautiful weather and view. The service was always very friendly, but a bit slow at times. I will eat there again on my next visit to this wonderful corner of our planet.

A very good seafood Restaurant with a fantastic view. The weather was very very good, so that helped a lot.
Very good service, accompanied with good food.
The restaurant was very busy but yet the service and quality of food was superb.
We will definitely be back, but this time we will pre-book.
Non the less a fantastic lunch.

Thank Rob E

Fantastic dinner, I had the steak and calamari combo. It was great, the steak was rare, tender and juicy, the calamari was the best I had in South Africa, and I tried a lot, just see my other reviews! The wine was cheap and great, coffee was ok, service was very professional. Awesome dinner for seven people for about £90, no reason not to go.

This is a great location for outdoor view inside is olde worlde. We thoroughly enjoyed our mound of prawns. But have to say the service was terrible. Uninterested at best. Perhaps too many tourists? If you can ignore the service, enjoy the wine, views and seafood!

We have visited "Chappies" several times over many years and it continues to live up to its reputation. Fabulous food, friendly and efficient service, great location, and good value for money. Will make sure we return each time we visit the Cape.
