We dined at Harbor House for lunch. It was a very busy day as it was a national holiday in South Africa. It is best to book ahead for a table. We sat inside and had a nice view of the harbor area. The food...More

Have tried other higher echelon restaurants at the waterfront but always go back to this one. Great location, views and ambience. Food always first rate and service always good. Cape Town eating at its best.

On the top terras you have a nice view over the harbour. Ordered some sushi that was very good and fresh, the wine list is extensive and ranges from fair price and up. Worth to lunch here (even in winter)

Friendly service and great wine - cold afternoon in midwinter, but the heating indoors was good and the service very warm indeed. Have not had a full meal - only a snack, but that was tasty, if a little overpriced. I'll be back.

Good place to get some food in the harbor. Good rates for a meal. Short distance to the attractions.
