We have been here before and it is always fantastic food and a great staff. This visit was the best ever. We had the most amazing waitress and she had maked jokes with us and was one big smile through the whole evening. And we...More

For some unfathomable reason, we haven't been here for years- and it has certainly been our loss. The setting is perfect for a long lazy lunch, and the food was divine. The langoustine and prawns were simply delicious, and I broke my golden rule and...More

Service was very good and attentive with excellent explanation of the daily specials. Personally I preferred the version of the slightly smaller prawns with 10 —12 on the plate rather than the 6 I got this time (albeit bigger) Will definitely return, and .hope that...More

If you want good seafood are willing to pay for it, this is your place. Feel the sea from open windows, excellent wines and service. The seafod platter for is not cheap, but it´s big enough for three. Try the ceviche as a starter.

We were so excited about our lunch at harbour view as we have visited others and was fabulous. This one either has a bad chef and or it is stuck in the dark ages. Almost every single restaurant in Cape Town has embraced the gin...More

Tourist trap. Great views and good service but that’s not what makes a great restaurant. Very small menu, we had choice of hake or yellowtail in CT, really? Extremely expensive for what you get. Spend a little more and you could do any top class...More

This is a sad review! I reviewed it twice before: "5+for upper restaurant" and "Excellent!!!!". This time we made a reservation 11 months beforehand to be sure to celebrate a BIG day. Prompt confirmation. But 7 months later we had a message: Sorry, we have...More

Wherever you sit the view is great. I prefer one of the table right next to the window, there is a cute little table on a balcony which is very private...but may be rather windy on some days!
