The History of Muriel’s Munchies

Muriel’s Munchies was welcomed to the Hout Bay Harbour in 2002. The family-run business was started by Muriel and Walter and was later joined by Muriel’s daughter, Audrey, and husband Ken, on completion of their sailing circumnavigation in 2013. The dedicated team are passionate about their intimate harbour-side eatery and have grown from strength to strength over the years, offering a varied menu of freshly prepared food.

Advice for visitors

The Hout Bay harbour is the first destination on the famous Hop on, Hop off Blue Mini Peninsula Tour, and Muriel’s is not even a 3-munite walk from the bus stop. We recommend sitting upstairs to get the best view of the harbour and be sure to arrive hungry! You get great value for money and you can taste the freshness of the seafood. Remember to save just enough space in your stomach for their famous milkshakes and waffles!

Did you know

The residents of Hout Bay affectionately refer to it as the “Republic of Hout Bay” due to the limited means of access into the suburb.
