Hout Bay German restaurant
Having spent their entire working lives in the food and hospitality industry - both locally and internationally - new owners, Kurt and Petra Schramm, have all the right qualifications to firmly place Alpenstube on the destination restaurant map in the picturesque surrounds of Hout Bay. Much needed improvements include a new front patio, a revamped outside bar and beer garden, and a fireplace for the cold winters.
Alpenstube offers a very versatile indoor-outdoor dining experience where you can relax and savour an imported German draught beer in the garden, have coffee and homemade pastries on the front patio, and enjoy a leisurely lunch or intimate dinner in the cosy interior. Aside from its large following of locals who carry them through the winter months, Alpenstube is fortunate to have many overseas visitors – German, Dutch and English - who, like the swallows, return year after year to their favourite Hout Bay haunt.
Now open at lunch time, the well-priced menu features traditional specialties such as Geschnetzeltes, thinly sliced port fillet in a creamy mushroom sauce, alongside light meals such as the Chef’s Burger, seasonal salads and a couple of soups. Master Chef Kurt has thoughtfully included several menu items specifically for children so that Alpenstube can be enjoyed by the whole family.
The signature dish must surely be the traditional Eisbein, but please call in advance to check availability. Other dinner recommendations are the grilled Fillet Steak, as well as Schnitzels to suit all tastes – pork, veal and chicken. You will also find fresh fish on the menu when available from the harbor. The pastries, desserts and cakes are all homemade, so why not indulge in whatever takes your fancy.
Hout Bay Seafood restaurant
The wealth of experience in the team behind this superb seafood restaurant really shows in the exquisite quality of food, impeccable service and vibrant atmosphere.
Succulent seafood as well as tender steak options ensure a great selection of offerings, especially when paired with a bottle from the carefully compiled wine list.
A buzzing atmosphere makes this spot on the very popular Chapmans Peak drive a must-visit venue.
Nestled at the foot of the picturesque Chapman's Peak Drive lies the The Chapmans Peak Hotel Restaurant. Regarded as a local institution, having been established over 30 years ago, it has earned the reputation of being the grand old lady of outdoor seafood restaurants in Cape Town.
Calamari at the Chapman's Peak was voted as "one of top 20 things to do in Cape Town". Seafood might be the specialty of the restaurant, but grilled steaks and venison are a must.
A popular meat dish is the “Portuguese Steak” – cubed fillet served with our secret sauce – served in a pan. Also served is the typical Portuguese Espetada – steak on a skewer. Looking for somewhere with a fireplace during those cold winter night? Look no further than the Chapman Peak Restaurant.

Kitima is a relatively new addition to Hout Bay cuisine, but has been a huge success from the day it opened. Located in the historic Kronendal premises, the restaurant has been designed with its Thai / Asian theme in mind, but managed to keep the original aesthetic of the building intact. The menu is amazing (you shouldn't miss the dim sum), the cocktail list very impressive and service and attention to detail are of a high standard.
There is a great lounge where you may drink cocktails or arrival, or linger a while and order from the starter menu, and the recently opened Raya lounge caters for smart events.On Sunday afternoons a very reasonable buffet is offered.This is an upmarket establishment and prices are in line with that, but well worth it. It's very popular, so book at least a week in advance.
