Pakalolo in Hout Bay is a really cool place. Owned by two relaxed East Germans. Interior is very original, ambiance is lovely. Very mixed patronage; Germans, Dutch, locals black and white which is very refreshing. Food always good specifically the Sunday roasts! And for that price! When the weather is good, the terrace is lovely. Sunsets are spectacular from there. Friday nights live music played by different bands and Sunday early evening 'open mike' which is great fun. Service is very friendly. In short as a local it has been my second lounge since they started some 7 years ago. Well worth visiting!

I have been in Hout bay for a few months. I go to Pakalolo every day! Free internet helps bur the food and staff are fantastic.
Friday nights they have live music and their Sunday lunches are awsome.

Nice atmosphere, like a local village pub. The food is not 5 star restaurant material, but it is very good and wholesome. A nice place to visit on a lazy weekday or weekend day.
