The restaurant is a local institution, renowned worldwide for the best Calamari in Cape Town, with a popular sun-drenched terrace overlooking the bay and mountains. Calamari at the Chapmans Peak was voted as "one of top 20 things to do in Cape Town".It’s the ideal location for those lingering sunsets and balmy evenings. A sun-drenched verandah boasting spectacular views of the bay offers an alternative eating venue for those wishing to dine Al fresco. And in those winter months, it’s one of few places in the Cape with fireplaces (dating back 100yrs)

Don’t have their Summer Lunch or your be disappointed.
Calamari, Prawns and Line fish.
So far so good.
Until it arrives.
The most expensive meal at R295 per plate gives you 4 overcooked indelicate prawns, kingklip tail ends from the freezer and service lacking when...an eyebrow is raised.
Been her over the last 30 years.
The chef has left the kitchen.
If you want a dull, tasteless ensemble, it’s available at a price.
Calamari was good, as to be expected, for the rest, below par.
I did raise my concerns, to be met with ‘ what would you like us to do?.
Frankly not my place to dictate but rather to be on the receiving end of some more sympathetic caring gesture.
It’s not the money,not the portion, so all we expect post COVID doom is a little effort and perhaps even, the coffee is on the house.More
I had prawns but actually should have had the speciality calamari which was delicious. Someone had the steak and calamari combo and raved about it. Dessert was good, ice cream and nice chocolate sauce the others had caramelized lemon pie which went down very well....Nice vibe, very busy, good service and very attentive manager/maiter D'More
