“This is a great harbour for tours out to seal island and good fish and chips from a local favourite, Snoekies. Also on the harbour are two great seafood restaurants, Mariners Wharf and The Lookout. On weekends, get yourself to the Bay Harbour Market for good food and local crafts, situated at the far end of the harbour, near Snoekies. Don’t forget your ice cream too!”

“An institution of Hout Bay, Mariners is situated at one end of the crescent beach. There is a fish and chip restaurant on the ground floor, plus fresh fish shop and more around the corner. The restaurant is on the first floor and worth a visit for classic fish dishes, incredible artefacts and an individual vibe, with waiters in striped jumpers and great views of the bay. It's worth taking some time to study what decorates the walls and is in display cabinets - some of the finest naval and maritime memorabilia you would find anywhere. ”

“A local legend, situated right at the very end of the Harbour Road, literally you can't drive further. Grab a fish and chips, calamari, fresh fish of the day, and sit on the wooden table and benches outside. It's very basic and a bit oily, but scrumptious. You can also stroll to the waters edge and sit on a rock, while taking in the views of Chapmans Peak.”

“Nauticat or Calypso will take you on an amazing tour to Seal Island, where you will see them frolicking in the water. This is a "must see" in Hout Bay, it is inexpensive and lasts only 45 minutes. After that catch an amazing lunch at the Harbour, The Lookout, or Mariners Warf.”
