Mariner’s Wharf If it is world class, freshly caught seafood and authentic maritime themes that take your fancy, then the Mariner’s Wharf at the Hout Bay Harbour is to be your destination of choice. Historic harbour For generations, the fishermen of Hout Bay have launched their boats from the harbour destined to return with their nets full of bounty of the ocean. The Mariner’s Wharf, originally where the day’s catch was traded, has since been reinvented as a harbour-front emporium. Today Mariner’s Wharf attracts many visitors thanks to its bountiful offerings, traditional “old world harbour” ambiance, and wonderful seafood. The Mariner’s Wharf is also home to a gift shop, a lively fish market and bakery and is in the heart of the working Hout Bay harbour. Seafood spectacular There are a host of dining options to chose from here, including the Wharfside Grill - a large all-seater restaurant long regarded as one of South Africa’s best seafood eateries, open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Wharfette Bistro is a bustling take-away restaurant serving fabulously fresh fish dishes, most famous for its fish and chips. Should you want to whip up your own spectacular seafood meal, then the Fishermens’ Market is the place to buy your fresh fish. There is also a sushi bar offering a feast of freshly prepared fish dishes. Fishermen’s market
 The hull of a wooden trawler built in the 1940s forms the mainstay of the market, where fresh fish, live lobsters, local and imported seafood are sold daily. An on-site smoker turns out oak-smoked snoek and the market offers a wide range of delicatessen fare, expertly complemented by a discerning range of estate wines, local beers and liqueurs. Southern seaside souvenirs
 The Mariner’s Chest offers ocean-themed trinkets and a treasure chest full of other souvenirs. Pearl, nautical artifacts, books, paintings, brass object d’art and shipwreck memorabilia are all on sale from the Shipwreck Shop and if you are all curio-ed out, the Wharf’s signature wine in a fish-shaped bottle might just be that perfect solution.
