Our friend recommended we ate the fish here and it was awesome!! The snoek was very fresh and the taste was great. Great portions for a good price. Some of the best fish we had in Cape Town while visiting!!

The food at Snoekies is always excellent. You can't beat their fish anywhere. As usual, the resturant is a bit chaotic with different parts of the order being ready at different points (fish & chips first, prawns take longer & we almost forgot to collect desert). Overall it's a great experience. The one in Hout Bay that we visited has now closed in the seating area so it's better in poor weather. I've had several bad experiences with the one in Bothasig, but the others I've been to are all good.

Visited Snoekies today.they were buay as expected and we decided on take away on the beach. We order the prawn,hake and chips and also the calamari and chips.Qorsed food every.Everything was drenched with oil.The chips tasted and smelled like old burned chips.The calamari was like eatibg a tyre.Prawns had spice on it but was overwhelmed with old burned oil.The hake was not too bad. Couldnt go back as a huge row of cars and our little one was hungry.Should've gone to Marinars Warf,the other people on the beach food looked much healthier. Everytime I go to Snoekies I seem the get the bad end of the stick.

see photo of the prawn,hake and chips combo.Tell me if that looks good...

A friend from South Africa recommended this local seafood joint in Hout Bay. For those familiar with the Food Network show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” this seems like a perfect spot for Guy to visit. Hout Bay is gorgeous and the view alone is worth the 30-45 minute drive from Cape Town. Snoekis is situated right on the docks with ships in port and fisherman everywhere. It certainly adds to the atmosphere. If doing the Chapman’s Peak drive, this place is a must! We went right as it opened and were the only customers. We feasted on snoeki (our first time eating this fish), hake, calamari and prawns along with chips. Our 20 month old daughter devoured the calamari and later dug into the hake. The price was really cheap too. We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend both the experience and the food!

We recently had a meal at Snoekies and really enjoyed it. The fish was fresh and nicely fried. The calamari was spectacular. What else can one say? This establishment does not advertise itself as a so-called gourmet restaurant - they do good, wholesome fish-and-chips for a living and they do it well. The decor is basic but in keeping with the atmosphere. There was a short queue and the ladies working in the back ensured that the wait was not long. All in all, good value for money.
