Awesome location, wholesome food & fabulous entertainment

The Brass Bell is located in the heart of the historic fishing village of Kalk Bay, Cape Town. This seaside location not only offers one of the most amazing views in Cape Town but with its 8 different dining areas, there is something to suit everyone.

Surrounded by rolling waves, the restaurant complex of terraced dining areas, pubs and entertainment theatre offers visitors an unforgettable and truly unique dining experience.



There’s something for everyone at The Bell.

Located in the heart of the historic fishing village of Kalk Bay.

Built in 1939, the Brass Bell's humble beginning as a council-run "Tea Room" is a far cry from the bustling complex of seaside dining venues, pubs and the amazing Beach at the Bell that it is today.

A dynamic hospitality team have turned the Brass Bell from a once quaint seaside bistro into an iconic household name, with seating capacity of just over 1000 in 8 different dining and events venues.

Keep an eye on the working Kalk Bay Harbour while the brightly painted fishing boats come and go with their daily catch.

Choose between either watching the whales passing by from July to November, watching the surfers ride the waves or just relax on the beach deck while the children play in the tidal pools.

Location is everything come along and see for yourself.

Happy people, happy days...

"The service was friendly and efficient and we felt encouraged to visit again the next night, our last night in Kalk Bay. Again we had a lovely meal. This time we had starters of Mussels and a Greek Salad, followed by T-Bone (again) and fish cakes for me and this time a bottle of Pinotage. The food is excellent value and the location and service is lovely."

Daisy Duke, Swindon, United Kingdom

Great service, wonderful views, good food, delicious milkshakes

"Maxwell was our waiter and he was everything and more, attentive and knowledgeable. We had a lovely meal, delicious mussels, some surf and turf with fresh fish and chips paired with T-bone steak. Their guava and rosewater milkshake was a meal in itself, delicious!"

For Whom The Bell Tolls

"One of my favourite meals in SA. We had fisherman's platters which would feed a small army. Service was great, food was fantastic - particularly the mussels and seafood curry. We also had traditional Cape Town brandy cake for pud - and it was fantastic. The location, right on the sea, gives diners a great view of the waves crashing in."

Tony, London

"Most amazing views, lovely food and superb service by Gerry! She truly makes Brass Bell feel like home!
Thank you Gerry!"

Hannah, Cape Town Central

Great food, great view

"Went for lunch, and two amazing burgers (one veggie). Cheap - around 110rand each and pretty big burgers too. We were lucky enough to watch whales out the window too!"
