Recently a friend of mine came up from Scotland and I decided to take a tour of the peninsula which I will get into more in another post. The best part of the journey was stopping for dinner in an area known as Kalk Bay in Cape Town, part of the activities planned was that we were going to have dinner that night at the Brass Bell Restaurant.
The Brass Bell is a local legend in the Cape and for myself and growing up in Kommetjie and Fish Hoek it was quite an adventure to return here.  I was somewhat surprised at the same time I had never seen the renovations. The restaurant itself is now to divided into three different areas with an outdoor deck beach pool area and also an inside pub area, followed by a more casual dining area all of which are facing onto the beautiful crashing waves.

Brass Bell Restaurant Dining Experience

On this particular evening, we decided to choose a casual dining option as we had been busy and on the run all day, and we didn't feel like lots of loud music. It is important to note that the beach and pool areas are only open during the day. The inside of the restaurant is really really basic with wooden benches and tables reminiscent of a rustic fisherman style, but the food itself is mainly seafood and offers the freshest and the most traditional. Dishes include Catch Of The Day, Hake & Chips (white firm-fleshed stockfish), to Calamari( also known as Squid), to fresh Oysters. The restaurant offers a wide variety and still caters to the carnivores with options like steak and Pork Belly.

Our meal consisted of a fresh Oysters just bursting with flavour and a hint of Tabasco, Hake and chips for him and Calamari and chips for myself. We rounded off our meal with cappuccinos to cleanse the palate and give us a kick of energy to keep going until we got to respective homes.

The service was excellent the waiters and waitresses were very friendly and the food arrived quickly. It was hot and fresh ... seafood at it's best, and overall a wonderful experience.
Thank you, Brass Bell for a lovely evening and I will differently be back in the near future.

Sadly I forgot to take pictures so please forgive me *cheesy grin*
