The Lookout has reopened this week in Hout Bay Harbour.
They have an “Oyster Special... R12 each !” We ordered have a dozen. They were medium in size ,tasty & very fresh. Our waitress Nicola was fantastic. She even organized us some squid as a...pre tasting. Deciding on the pan fried Patagonian squid & the Gambas Pil Pil prawns we enjoyed the most delicious lunch. The views over the Harbour towards Chapman’s Peak Drive are excellent too. Big thank you also to Berkeley who was serving behind the bar.More
We missed the ferry to Seal Island so decided to have a beer here on the quayside. Sitting in the sun with boats coming and going, sea lions playing in the water and being fed fish offal from the local catch life couldn't be more...pleasant. Just 40 minutes required to recharge our batteries. Recommended.More
We searched Hout Bay restaurants before we went on our holiday to SA
Try and sit out on the deck, the sun was shining and the atmosphere was enjoyable.
The staff were knowledgeable and honest about portion sizes so we didn’t over order ,a quality...which was appreciated.
The food (platter for 1) fed both of us and we are still talking about how good it was...
Only minor issue, the front of house was poor as our names were taken and people with no bookings were being shown to their tables before us by other staff as we sat at the bar.
Loved this place...we will definitely be back.
Seals on the dock are a bonusMore
Enjoyed eating at this place . Never too busy so we could sit anywhrer we wanted .
Staff as most staffs in SA not very well trained , but they made an effort . One of the floormanagers was clearly not up to her task...but the overall feeling we had was good.
Food sushi or otherwise was very good . Ample parking.More
4 years ago it was impossible to enjoy a meal here because of the smell from the nearby fish processing plant. This has now been closed down, I suspect much to the relief of most of the inhabitants of Hout Bay so we went back...to the Lookout for lunch. We shared oysters, hake and chips and carafes of rosê. It was all first class with pleasnt efficient service.
What a joy to find an old favourite back on form.More
Great food varied menu and great prices ,this restaurant is one of our favourites in Hout Bay, can recommend Friday nights as ther is a live duo man and wife singing group who are excellent and a great accompaniment to the food and drink Don’t...miss it ,a great treatMore
