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.
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.
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.
