5 delicious reasons to dine at Harbour House, V&A Waterfront in Cape Town this winter

If there’s one thing you all know pretty well about me by now is that I am truly, madly, deeply in love with Cape Town’s cuisine … seriously, the Mother City has me beholden to her tastes in the most scrumptious way. So when I was invited to indulge my insatiable appetite with the Harbour House V&A Waterfront’s divine winter menu, I could hardly refuse.

I could give you one reason to visit this portside establishment but I’m feeling generous so here are 5 delicious reasons to dine at Harbour House this chilly season:

1. Location, location, location: A gorgeous view just adds an extra special touch to any meal and with Harbour House’s prime spot right on the edge of Table Bay Harbour, this restaurant does indeed offer a spectacular experience.

2. Fireside dining: I’m all about the ambiance when it comes to my winter dining  spot choices and boy, does Harbour House V&A have it in spades – grab your one and only, a bottle of fine wine and cosy up to the roaring fireplace for that warm, fuzzy and filling feeling.

3. Eat, drink and be merry: The extensive menu changes monthly and July’s features the mouth-watering bouillabaisse; prime fillet of ostrich with oyster sabayon, onion varietals, bone marrow disk and baby asparagus; salted caramel chocolate delice with coffee ice cream and chocolate crumbs and more. Accompanied by an impressive selection of South African wines, a great feast is guaranteed.

4. Foodie love doesn’t have to cost a thing: So, you’re thinking that all of this gorgeous, styling dining is going to cost you a king’s ransom, right? With their fantastic set winter menu deal, you can dine to your heart’s content on a two course menu for R 170, spoil yourself proper with the three course meal for R 190 or dine ala carte from the usual menu .Totally worth every cent!

5. Celebs love it at Harbour House – just last month, the gorgeous Claire Danes was seen at the Harbour House Kalk Bay and we're sure the V&A outlet will be next. Danes is in Cape Town, filming the fourth season of her hit series Homeland. And you thought dinner was going to be a stuffy affair…

Quit talking Fazielah, and show us what we’re missing, I hear you say? Ok, feast your eyes on these tasty pics of my Harbour House dining experience:
