Polana is my favourite place to go on a date in the middle of winter when the sea is storming, or for a party on a warm summer night. It is situated on the ground level of the Harbour House in Kalk Bay, and features a glass cocktail lounge built on the rocks, meters away from the crashing waves. In winter the fire place crackles in the lounge as huge flocks of cormorants trek across the bay. From late July whales are seen from distances as little as fifty meters away, while seals frolic in the kelp all year round. Polana restaurant is to meat what Harbour House is to fish. A superlative steak house by the sea, with truffles in the mushroom sauce and parties that rage till dawn.
