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.
We bought a parcel of snoek and chips on the 9 March 2021 in the afternoon. We were disappointed with the portion .There,was only a single portion of snoek. For the record we alwAys received 2 portions of snoek whenever we ordered.
Was this a human error or u now have reduced the portions. I did send an email but u did not reply.
Food has become very expensive for the quality of food.
Have been going there for many years but sorry no more.
I would give this place ten stars if I could. There is simply no better place to eat in Cape Town, fresh fish off the boats, casual, friendly atmosphere, wonderful staff and George, the owner generously makes everyone feel welcome.
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.
