Brendan and I absolutely loved our evening at the Harbour House restaurant. The setting is lovely, watching the sunset over the ocean is very special. Jared was excellent and gave us impeccable service. The food was delicious and the wine was great. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We will highly recommend your restaurant to any friends travelling to Cape Town. Many thanks, Kate and Brendan McKenna

Harbor House is always a pleasant experience and we sent many guests there, it is the best venue out of all Harbor Houses in the Cape. A small sour point was with a service supervisor who blatantly refused giving me a starter portion of the seafood pasta, saying that if I want the pasta I needed to take it as a main and pay as a main. This was rather poor considering the number of guests I had.

I have been to Harbour house several times now, but this experience was the worst ever. I brought a friend visiting from Austria and was embarrased that i had recommended Harbour house. The seafood platter we shared was way below the usual standard i have come to expect, mussels were small, the fish was overcooked, the sauces were half their usual quantities and nothing was it's usual quantity. I was severely disappointed and hope my next visit is up to par, or i will not be going back again.

A beautiful, unbeatable setting on the water with amazing fresh fish and seafood. We love finishing with coffees on the little terrace at the back.

Seafood selection has become very expensive. Linefish selection was a bit bland Service and atmosphere excellent

We were late for our reservation, but I had phoned to warn them of this and they were happy to accommodate it. We were shown to a table overlooking the car park, but on our requesting something facing the sea we were moved to a table that suited. The waitress (I do not like to neuter the term) was very helpful explaining the specials and that they were not set in stone - so one of the group chose one fish but with another dish's presentation. The rest of us chose salads, and were informed that they could all be vegetarian if required. All plates were clean when the meal was finished, which is testimony enough to the quality of the food. The one thing which lost a star was the length of time it took to get the bill when we wanted to go - but that is par for the course in Cape Town. I have eaten here many times over the years and it has maintained its high standards.

We've been coming to the Harbour House, Polana and Live Bait in Kalk Bay for 16 years. (I've made public its previous excellence.) On Sunday the service was, well, cold. No eye contact. We seemed a nuisance asking if Yellowtail was on the menu and when we said the hake was unusually full of just mashed potatoes - were told - no-one's said that before. The four of us felt we shouldn't be there.

An absolutely awesome experience time and time again. You never fail to excite our palates and put smiles on our faces. Bianca was friendly, professional and attentive and the food was divine. Thank you.

We come here every year. Beautiful location, friendly service, good and fresh food. But this year the food wasn’t that extraordinary than before. As it’s seasoning was quite stale.

whilst the food was good the service was lacklustre to say the least. Lots of waiters hanging about doing nothing, ignoring us. Eventually I complained to the waitress that it was our last night in Cape Town and we had specifically chosen Harbour House having seen reviews of both good food and service but we were being ignored. She did her best and the food was delivered quickly. Small customer services issues like carrying drinks to the table from the bar, offering ice and lemon with the sparkling water were completely non- existent. It was just as well we didn't want desserts as we would have breached the 2 hour rule - that the table had to be returned by 2000hrs! It is not the way I wanted to remember the final meal in Cape Town.

Much less pretentious than the Cape Town branch, only negative was the noise levels. 3 big groups and the windows being shut led to a very loud dining experience. Food was great as a non fish eater in a fish restaurant the pork belly option was fabulous
