Situated on the banks of the Breede River, the Harbour Lights restaurant offers good old fashioned home cooking in a very unassuming setting.
Open: 8-10am 12-2pm 6-9pm
Average main course: R90
Food type: Boerekos – Afrikaans traditional farm food
Basic at its best with a small dessert menu. We ate the bouillabaisse which was fantastic – it had a nice fish flavour and a chilli bite. Your meal will start with proper farm bread and the portions are very generous. The farm style vegetables were too overcooked for my liking. The fish we had was fresh and tasty and worth ordering if available.
Adequate wine list with local vineyards showcased and reasonably well priced
Very pleasant service and friendly staff but the kitchen itself is very slow in getting the food out
All the tables are 8 seaters as the restaurant is attached to the hotel which is aimed at family holiday stays. They use proper napkins but the let down is plastic squeeze bottles of tomato sauce on the tables.
I would book a weekend away for the utter quiet!
