Harbour House is proud to announce the launch of its Harbour House Tasting Menu Concept. In keeping with Life & Brand Portfolio’s key brand pillars of creativity & collaboration this menu concept, expertly crafted by Life & Brand Portfolio’s recently acquired New Product Development Head Chef – Michael Jonker and Brand Chef – Odette Olivier will be available seven days a week, from 02 February at Harbour House V&A, and from 08 February at Harbour
House Kalk Bay.
Our V&A Waterfront store offers international cuisine with Mediterranean influence in a sophisticated setting. Serving only the freshest seafood and ingredients, this prime position overlooking the bustling Victoria Basin and Quay, continues its status as ‘The Firm Favourite Sea-food Dining Destination’ for both locals and visitors.
This ever-popular restaurant echo’s the original Harbour House, majestically perched on the Kalk Bay Harbour quayside. This acclaimed restaurant may as well be on the edge of the known world! It certainly feels that way, as you gaze out over the ocean, the waves crashing up against the windows and seals frolicking among the colourful fishing boats. Voted ‘the coolest neighbourhood in the world’ Kalk Bay with its bohemian atmosphere, its gallery, café and
boutique lined streets are all a part of The Harbour House experience. Harbour House Tasting Menu Concept is designed to delight customers with fresh, exciting and rewarding dining options to add to our stellar menu.
The concept delivers a five-course dining option at:
• 3 course tasting menu R195 / with wine pairing R315
• 5 course tasting menu R285 / with wine pairing R485
