The Porthole Restaurant


Seafood Traditional South African

Visitors return to St Francis Bay again and again, not only because of its magnificent unspoilt coastline and beaches, but also because it has remained relaxed, friendly and relatively uncommercialised.

Popular with locals and visitors alike, the Porthole Restaurant in St Francis Bay offers wonderful vistas of the busy working harbour and open sea and ensures guests are regularly entertained by whales and dolphins that come in close to the harbour wall. No two days at the Porthole Restaurant are the same – visitors are treated to something different, interesting and memorable with each visit.

At the Porthole Restaurant and Pub you will be able to choose from a wide selection of delicious food from their al a carte menu with regular specials which run throughout the year. There is a great atmosphere, friendly staff and full bar facilities. There are also ‘bar’ specials available from time to time and sports fixtures can usually be watched on the big screen.

Even on windy days this is a perfect place to visit – sliding doors ensure your amazing view is not interrupted but the wind is kept at bay.

Live music and ‘party nights’ are a great and popular feature at the Porthole Restaurant and the games room and smoking lounge are there for guests to enjoy.

Open seven days a week the Porthole is a great place to relax, unwind and know that your holiday has started!

St Francis Bay is a great destination - although it is still an unspoilt village it is close to airports, good shopping, top game reserves and prime fishing spots.

Wander down to the Porthole Restaurant which is in the Porthole Building in Triton Avenue, St Francis Bay – a great venue with good food and great atmosphere.
