“Not great”

Harbour View Cafe and Restaurant
Ranked #903 of 1 299 Restaurants in Cape Town Central
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 March 2016

We wanted to love this place but it just didn't work. The food was over cooked and greasy. There wasn't a great atmosphere and the music was terrible. I am afraid we tried the food, paid and went somewhere else. It is in such a great position and could be fabulous, just not on our visit. Shame.

This is a typical fast food stop by. The lady served us was funny but could not help to make the experience good. The food (seafood and steak) was just bad. Not well grilled and more undefined taste. The only good thing were the cappuccino they offer.

With a few words:
Great atmosphere, good stile and VERY friendly staff. The chef is working in the kitchen and checking the food on every table. The attention you receive is just enough and not too much. Prices are very acceptable. This is one of the places I will go to more than once during my stay.

We should have noticed the sign when the restaurant was empty on a Saturday night but we tried it anyway. Overcooked fish, prawns, vegies, chips and muscles. Wine and dom pedro's were good. Someone walks into restaurant trying to sell things so not a cosy stylish place to go. Awful music with no vibe. Such a pity as they are in a great spot. They need a Gordon Ramsay make over.

To be fair to this place I probably ordered the wrong thing which I did not enjoy as everyone else seemed to enjoy theirs. Setting was nice and staff were good.
