This Mall is within 200 m from the Colosseum Hotel and City Conference Centre, so it is perfect to visit while your Hubby attend a conference.

There is a lot to do at this shopping mall. Shop, browse and take a break at the many different restaurants and cafes. There are additional stores outside in the upper parking level (home furnishings and garden centers). Canal Walk also has a cinema. There is lots of entertainment for the kids as well. I think it makes for a... More

The size of this mall reminds me of the Dubai mall. Endless stores I'd advise to get the available stores for what you want online and go straight there if you want to get any shopping done. If I'd rather not shop though, there are a lot of attractions

I'm probably not the best person to write a review of a shopping mall but.. The mall is modern and very pleasant inside with a great food hall. Other than that it seemed to be mainly women's clothes shops with a few others included. Husbands/partners - your best bet is to go to the food hall and watch sport on... More

We had supper at the Ocean Basket as we were shopping in Canal Walk, Century City, Cape Town. The service was OK. The food : the grilled calamari tubes and chips - the calamari was cold and the chips were not crispy as specifically requested. The fish and stir fry veggies - the fish was over-cooked and the stir fry... More

A busy upmarket mall a bit out of Cape Town. It is packed on weekends and has both upmarket shops as well as more affordable Pick N Pay, Game and Mr. Price Home. It is very popular with Middle Eastern shoppers. Lots of food choices as well as cinemas.

I've been to many malls including Dubai Mall and Canal Walk would most likely be equivalent to that in my opinion. Lots of shops and a big food court. Everything from clothing shops to toy/gadget shops to massage rooms! There's cinemas and a gaming arcade to keep the kids busy. So basically there's something for everyone.
