“Good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Fish on the Rocks offers good value for your money. The portions are big, fish is great but the chips were the English style (big fat and soft). We prefer our chips the french fry style. Service is fast (it was not busy when we were there).
There are 2 sides to the location. It has fantastic views but it is set in the factory part of the harbour. You get the feeling that it is not so safe there. Even the owner was once shot several times. We just picked up our orders and drove around to the other side of Hout Bay to eat there.

By the Fish on the Rocks there is some history. It is next to the West fort. This was first built by the Dutch VOC to protect the harbour entrance. Across the bay there is the East fort also 1st built by the VOC.

“Average fish and chips but good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

Small portions but very cheap. Taste was ok but the batter is thin and not crispy and the chips are thin like frites so quite different from the uk. The food was okay but not amazing .

“Location better than food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Could not be better located with view of Ocean and mountains, but other than no different to a thousand other fish and chip places. Depends on when you arrive as to how fresh it may be., Our food was not of great quality and did not belong to a freshly cooked batch. Could have eaten much better at the local market
