The Brass Bell Restaurants and Pubs, located in the trendy harbor town of Kalk Bay, is situated in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Surrounded by the rolling waves, the restaurant complex of terraced dining areas, is nestled into the tidal pool walls, and offers visitors an unforgettable and truly unique dining experience.

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 that it is today. Owner, Tony White has pioneered the ongoing development of the Brass Bell Restaurants and Pubs, and together with his dynamic hospitality team has turned the Brass Bell from a once quaint seaside bistro into a beloved house hold name, boasting an impressive series of 7 different dining and events venues.

The location and splendor of this magical place has captured the imagination and hearts of tourists and locals alike, and it is now a world renowned and well loved hotspot welcoming guests with warm hospitality and superb menu selections.
