Harbour House

Look no further than Harbour House at the V&A Waterfront – visit the rooftop balcony for a birds-eye view of the buzzing ocean activity. Wave goodbye to parties heading out on a Jolly Roger pirate ship adventure while you tuck into a mouth-watering bowl of steamed mussels.

Den Anker

If mesmerising yachts and seal spotting is what you’re looking for, visit the Belgian-inspired Den Anker Restaurant & Bar. Renowned for their ice-cold Belgian beer and seafood so fresh you can practically still taste the saltwater. 


Speaking of seal spotting, if they happen to be hiding underwater, and you don’t see them when crossing the swing bridge or our many canals. Stop by Bootlegger Coffee Company behind the aquarium for a perfectly brewed cuppa, a muffin, an incredible view of the V&A Waterfront and a peak over the railing at the seals lazing on their wooden platform.
