Romantics and ocean lovers will love the vistas and picture-perfect surrounds here.

I've been coming to this restaurant for a long time now. For family birthdays and excursions to Kalk Bay years ago, and later, when I moved to this pretty little fishing village, it became a special supper go-to and it remains a special occasion bet. The views are incredible, the East African island interiors enough to coax you into a holiday frame of mind and the menu is peppered with seafood favourites.

Food and drink

The mostly seafood menu has had a shake up of late. Meaty grills and mouth-watering salads also feature. The wine list is on the small side but has plenty of seafood-friendly choices.

Recommended dishes

The paprika calamari remains a favourite but new choices like the bouillabaisse and ceviche salad are worth a try. I always have the tempura prawn tian - it's fantastic and the oysters are excellent too. Hungry? Go for broke with the seafood platter.

Ambience

A happy buzz permeates this restaurant - come during summer or at the weekend and it's heaving.

Service

For the most part it's efficient, but it can be shaky when it's busy.

Location

Kalk Bay Harbour.

Price advice

Main course are, on average, 120 rand.

Tables to book

Go for window seats on summer days and moonlit nights.

Branches

Visit sister eateries in the building: Live Bait for a taverna-style experience and Polana for tapas and robust bites. Laid-back al fresco eatery Sirocco can be found on the Main Road, close to the station.
