About Live Bait (Muizenberg)
Live Bait is about colourful, casual, comfortable dining in a harbour venue that is unique in South Africa. On sunny days, the floor to ceiling windows are opened to allow the heady scent of the sea to whet your appetite. Popular with young couples, families and foreign dignitaries alike, the casual banquette seating and colourful harbour atmosphere make Live Bait the perfect place to enjoy a lazy lunch by the sea.
The food is a range of well-presented crowd pleasers with a stylish, vibrant twist, like Smoked Paprika Calamari, Hake and Chips with Basil Mayonnaise and, of course, the freshest possible line fish, straight from the fishing boats moored just meters away.
Fabulous food and service
We had a wonderful time. The only glitch was after we had left and paid the correct bill as I always check our bills, I received a call telling me we hadn't paid the correct amount ,told her impossible,she told me what we had ordered then I told her what we had ordered, she did apologies as she had the incorrect party. Have never ever experienced that before. We will be back!
We had a great lunch
Our waiter was really friendly and helpful. the food was amazing, and the view of the beach made a romantic Valentine date perfect.
The place has got a beautiful setting but there is a problem with a noise level once a few tables are occupied.
We've been to Live Bait several times. Have always enjoyed the food even though the service could be really slow. Not this time around though. Received good service along with some good food. I was a bit disappointed to see that some of the favourites were no longer on the menu but I was informed that the menu would be changed soon. All in all, it was a good night out.
Thank you for the oppertunity. 1.THE SERVICES WAS EXCELENT (WAITRESS) 2.THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD 3. THE SEA VIEW WAS BEAUTIFULL. 4. SADLY YOU REMOVED THE WHOLE FISH FROM YOUR MENUE. Kind Regards EBEN
I was sad to see that the seafood linguine is not on the menu. Also it would be nice if patrons could order a side green salad.
We keep going back for the grilled Hake, delicious.
Winelist is a bit limited for a decent restaurant so close to the Constantia valley. I would like to see a better though through list, especially on the white side. Sushi was excellent though.
We had lunch on 1 Jan 2018 and the service was slow. Our starter arrived after our main course. Food good but service needs to be jacked up!
Lovely setting, chilled atmosphere. Very fresh sushi platter!
Drinks overpriced, soft drinks were the tiny cheap tins, which to me indicates restaurants that want to take every cent that they can. Came especially for the calamari and there was none. And that was at 6pm booking. Waitress went through a list of what foods weren’t in stock. Clearly a lack of planning for the busy season. Nice view and nice decor.
Excellent evening out - thanks!
Hi there, while I do realise that this time of the year is a bit of a nightmare for restaurants i have to say that it is the 3 rd time we have been to Live Bait and all three times the main course took hours to come out. When we made the booking for 1pm it said specifically that the table should be available for the next seating at 3:30pm. Our mains, although ordered around 1:45 only arrived around 3pm. I love the food - really good quality but maybe the restaurant is not quite equipped in the kitchen to deal with more than one booked seating a day? We would definitely return because the food is really good, but i would hesitate to recommend it to friends.
We did not receive our meals after waiting for more than 2 hours and eventually left. An appalling dining experience.
Very nice lunch with friends and the quality of the food was very good. We were given a nice table with a lovely view. If there is one criticism, the service could have been a little better, but we are on the run up to Christmas and the waiting staff were very busy. We will definitely come to the restaurant again. Thank you.
Excellent service as always. Adored our waitress, Amanda.
Lesley was a great waiter, he was fantastic! Was dissapointed that your stock was low on a lot of things; fish, creme brûlée, paper straws and takeaway boxes. Having booked online I looked at your menu and spent the day looking forward to creme brûlée so that was a let down, when you didn't have.
Even thought we made a reservation we were seated at the only table where you can't see out the window
Great restaurant in a stunning location with views over the beach and bay. A favourite!
I'll go back any time!
Hi. Our waitress was very friendly. However she should have mentioned what the linefish of the day was and that there were no prawn Croquettes and whole fish before we ordered. also she didn't offer us desert or coffee after our mains. The food however was excellent as usual.
Food quality, service and ambiance were all excellent. I would have liked a larger portion of vegetables with my linefish. I will definitely be back.
