Wharfside alfresco take-outs

The Wharfette Bistro is a bustling and extremely popular outlet serving piping-hot alfresco take-outs on wooden benches right on the wharfside. Its speciality is fish and chips, but other choices include grilled lobster, prawns, calamari, snoek, Surfburgers®, Lekkerbekkies® and combos.

Best enjoyed while watching the antics of seagulls on the harbour's edge, as a picnic on the white sands of Hout Bay beach, or at home!


36 years of delicious seafood

From day one when the Bistro opened in 1984, it has been a huge success, where people from near and far flock for a taste of our acclaimed seafood that some is the best in the southern hemisphere.

Alfie, the “captain”, as his staff like to call him, is at the head of this famous eatery and has been with Mariner’s Wharf for many years. Under his watchful eye, the Bistro continues to grow, offering fresh, top quality seafood made to order.

Next time you’re in the mood for a Sunday drive and delicious fresh seafood, meander to Hout Bay, where waves lap the shore, seagulls squeal with delight and a holiday atmosphere prevails throughout the year.
