kalk bay pools


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.

Since 1981 owner Tony White has pioneered the organic growth of the Brass Bell Restaurants and Pubs.

Together with his dynamic hospitality team, they 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.



...The sealife

Watch the majestic whales from July to November playing in the ocean, and spot the seals zooming by while you relax and take in the scenery - You never know what might pop out of the sea next!



...Relaxing waves

Watch the surfers head out to the left of the Brass Bell and count how many waves they catch on the famous Kalk Bay reef. All the while listen to the soothing waves fold into the tidal pools...aahhhh another drink please waiter!



...Fishing boats & kids

Keep an eye on the working Kalk Bay Harbour while the brightly painted fishing boats come and go with their daily catch. Sit outside in the sun on our beach deck and keep an eye on the little ones in the shallow tidal pool or indulge in a swim yourself in one of the two deeper tidal pools.

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."

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."

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!"
