House Restaurant

Your go-to lifestyle and destination restaurant in Kenton on Sea, Eastern Cape.

The House Kitchen & Cellar is one of the most scenic go-to destination lifestyle and family restaurants in Kenton. Perched on a hill in the centre of town, you’ll be surprised by the magnificent views over the Kariega River and its exquisite surroundings.

Our deck is the ideal place to soak up the summer sun or evening alfresco dining; or perhaps you might prefer a table in the dining area surrounded by the interior touches of The House Planner’s upmarket and trendy retail homeware and design shop!

We are passionate about great coffee and good food
