The Polana Restaurant is situated in Kalk Bay Harbour, and is owned by the same team who operate the successful Harbour House Restaurant.

The polana is on the ground level of the harbour house complex, and features a beautifully appointed cocktail lounge built on the rocks, only meters away from the crashing waves. Relax on luxurious leather sofas and sip a cocktail while soaking up a view of unsurpassed beauty.

In winter a log fire roars in the lounge, as huge flocks of cormorants trek across the bay. From September, whales are often seen from distances of as little as fifty meters, while playful seals frolic in the kelp beds all year round.The interior of the restaurant is decorated in an elegant colonial style with African, Indonesian and Portuguese elements.

This is reflected in the cuisine, which features dishes from Africa, and especially Angola and Mocambique. Angolan chef Claude Alfonso makes every dish a culinary coup de tat. Savour delicious Cabrita No Forno, Morroccan Lamb stew, Espetada de Marisco or Espetada de Carne.

Situated as we are in a working fishing harbour, the Polana has daily access to a wealth of the freshest possible line fish.The restaurant is served by our ownfishing boat, which sells its catch exclusively to our restaurants. Other menu highlights include. Mabanga (mussels in chilli and garlic with chorizo sausage), grilled goat’s cheese salad,tiger prawns and crayfish.

After dinner, the lounge remains open for drinks until late, and every Friday night, the venue is geared up for a party that lasts until dawn.

A selection of fine cigars and cocktails are available.
