Dining on the rocks, with killer views…

For the past 8 days we’ve been hosting a young man called Matteo from Venice who’s been staying with us as part of a scholar exchange between my younger son Oscar’s school, Camps Bay High, & 2 schools over in that stunning Italian city, the names of which I totally can’t remember or spell.

Cape Town is a show-off kinda city so you’ll believe me when I say there’s been no shortage of where to take Matteo to see the most stunning beaches, mountains, wine farms, forests, hiking and walking trails, and way more. Cape Town literally has it all.

And when it comes to food the city has every type of cuisine available but as with everything, we tend to seek out the best so it made sense to take our guest somewhere superb to savour the finest of seafood, and where other than at Harbour House, one of the most outstanding restaurants situated right on the small fishing harbour in Kalk Bay, a quaint village along the False Bay coast. Matteo experienced excellent fresh fish, langoustines, the famous tian of prawns, and way more. It was a fine feast as the pics show….

People From Afar, if you plan on visiting our gorgeous city, be sure to make a turn at Harbour House in Kalk Bay (0217884133), or at the V&A Waterfront (0214184748)

*Most of the dishes pictured are part of the September winter special menu, only available at the Kalk Bay restaurant ~ such great value for your moolah at R160 for 2 courses & R180 for 3 courses (unavailable for Sunday lunches). Best to book ahead or you’ll feel very bleak when you arrive and can’t get a table …
