This restaurant is located in the harbor, so we could watch the yellowvin tuna's coming out of the fishing boats. After that we enjoyed the best juicy tuna steak. The place is bit noisy & busy but you can sit outside next to the sea.

While visiting Hout Bay on our annual holiday, we tried The Lookout Deck. A great place for fish - a good view of the harbour and the prices are very reasonable. We had a very enjoyable lunch there.

Been going for years & the menu is unexciting & needs a spruce up. The wine list can also be improved. But the position overlooking the boats and mountains is just fabulous!
