Wharfside Grill & Restaurant

Africa’s first harbourside emporium
The Wharfside Grill is regarded as one of Africa’s best seafood restaurants, not only for its authentic harbourside ambience and spectacular bay views, but because of the amazing food it serves, the lobsters, the prawns and innovations like Calaprawnia, Houtbaisse and Fisherman’s Baskets.

Wharfette Bistro

Wharfside alfresco take-outs
A bustling and extremely popular outlet serving piping-hot alfresco take-outs on wooden benches right on the wharfside. Speciality is fish and chips. Other choices include grilled lobster, prawns, calamari, snoek, surfburgers, lekkerbekkies and combos.

Functions & Group Bookings

Ideal for functions
The Wharfside Grill is also ideal for functions. Ranging from small parties in its nautically-themed private dining cabins and select precincts of the restaurant, to booking the entire restaurant for 250 guests (plus another 100 on the outside Deck, weather dependent) it is a wise choice.

Proudly presenting a truly experienced operation, excellent service and authentic harbourside ambience, celebrating a special occasion or bringing a group to Wharfside Grill, its dining cabins (and function precincts) comprise:

Queen Mary Cabin - 8
Shipwreck Room - 10
Union-CastleCabin - 12
Masthead - 14
Navy Room - 24
Midships - 36
Captain’s Quarters - 38
Long Room - 50

A la carte or set menus for larger groups are available; and vegetarians or non-seafood diners are catered for accordingly.

Additional plusses include pre-dinner drinks in the adjacent Crayclub Cocktail Bar; or on the adjoining beach in a marque with live entertainment.

All precincts of Mariner’s Wharf are wheelchair-friendly.

Additionally, Wharfside Grill overlooks the Wharfette Bistro, which is likewise available for functions, group take-outs or eating al fresco but in a less formal setting overlooking beach and bay.

Please do not hesitate contacting us for further information. You are most welcome

What Others Say


Always a winner for the best seafood in Cape Town!


Fish and chips delish! There is a queue but it moves fast. They have sauvignon blanc, Hunters Cider, live music, lively scenery. Expensive curio shops but lovely trinkets. Lovely walk down the quay


Fantastic shops with lots of gifts, treats, snacks and delicacies!
