On the magnificent coastal drive from Cape Town
to Cape Point
is Hout Bay
and Mariner's Wharf
, the first harbourfront emporium in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere. Here you will find the Wharfside Grill Restaurant, one of Africa’s best seafood restaurants. With stunning views across the bay and dining cabins themed to famous ships, the food is a delicious extra.
The Wharfside Grill is regarded as one of Africa's best seafood restaurants, not only for its authentic harbourside ambience and spectacular views, but also because the food it serves, the lobsters, the prawns and the appetising sea-fresh dishes such as Fisherman's Baskets make it well worth a visit!
Seating over 350 diners, privacy does not take second place, as there are also six private dining cabins themed to seafaring history and famous ships, such as Queen Mary and those of Union Castle which frequented the Cape. Open seven days per week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
For the health concious, served with pesto potatoes, spinach, tiny tomatoes and the sweetest chilli sauces
