Harbour House – Heaven on Earth!

In Kalk Bay harbour, a busy working harbour where you can watch the fishermen offload their catch and buy some to take home, lies a little piece of heaven called Harbour House. Perched between the pier to the lighthouse and the rocky shore of False Bay is a charming old house with views to dies for.

Harbour House caters for all budgets: downstairs is a fish & chips place, a tapas bar and a seafood restaurant. Upstairs is the piece de resistance: Harbour House Restaurant, a fine dining seafood restaurant. I had tempura style kingprawns with avocado mousse and roasted brinjal (eggplant) for starters and parmesan crusted sole with artichoke for mains washed down with a cold, crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Buitenverwachting.

All of this while enjoying the sea breeze from the open panorama window, and watching the sky over False Bay change from blue to pink and lastly into a star studded carpet as the sun set.

You need to book early, especially if you want one of the tables by the window. They have two seatings, 6pm and 8.30pm and although 6 is early I definitely recommend it as you get to enjoy the sunset.
