A community favourite for years with a great view and good food makes Kalky's one restaurant worth visiting. With anything from tender calamari and chips to hake, chips and salads, they serve it.
The atmosphere and vibe here is charming and decidedly local, love that it's dockside. The food was rather average. The fish had a crunchy battered coating but wasn't well spiced and tasted rather bland. Of course the fish was fresh, but batter maketh the fish.
A fun experience if you're driving through, memorable location, forgettable food.

n the spur of the moment, after work, I convinced a friend and my boyfriend to take the train to go have a drink next to the ocean. On our way there I told my friend about the Kalky's Platter that my boyfriend and I had shared previously, and hadn't finished. Since none of us had really eaten the whole day we were sceptic but decided on the platter for all three to share. With all three of us, extremely hungry, we managed to leave a tiny piece of fish, little rice and chips out of our whole platter.
Once again Kalky's was and will be memorable.
Kalky's is a once a month Sunday family tradition. Even though it takes forever to get there the food is definitely worth it! We always have so much left over and that's only after ordering their family platter with a side of their prawns. Waiting for food is made a bit easier when indulging in their prawn and veg samoosa's. Try it! This should be a must stop when around that area. Even when you're not its worth the drive especially when taking the scenic route.
You have to go to Kalkbaai to Kalky's for FISH and CHIPS! In The December holiday this place was FUL, BUSY and BUZZING! But everyone was helped and we got a seat inside, with other people and shared the condiments! LOVELY Life and busy atmosphere with the smell of the ocean in your nose and the seals just outside and boats as your view! The service is fast and efficient, the Food is Amazing, a LOT and Cheap! You cant go wrong and this is definitely one those places you have to visit and then tell all your friends about! You will come back for sure! You cant get cheaper for that amount and quality of food
This is a must visit for anyone near Kalk Bay. It looks like a dump from the outside but they serve some of THE freshest fish and calamari and prawns. So so delicious. You can only pay cash and you have to order at the till. They then have a couple of very loud ladies that walk around shouting out your order number. Don't miss it or you'll miss out. Fresh fresh seafood, you can have vinegar soaked chips if you want. I had the prawns and chips - delicious and my partner had the calamari and chips... we shared and we were both so happy. It's incredibly great value for money and you are right on the harbour so can see the fresh fish coming in. Really cool. It's not nearly a fine dining restaurant, more what one would call a dive but so worth it if you fancy a little bit of local flare
