Had a quick lunch here and had to try the chicken livers. It was pretty average. The setting is quite nice on the roof with airstream caravans converted into rooms to stay over. They also show out door movies on a Monday

About
Description
The Grand Daddy is a luxury four-star city hotel with an effervescent, creative soul. Generous, warm and welcoming; The Grand Daddy’s passion is for people. The Grand Daddy’s big talking point is its ‘penthouse’ More trailer park, where a collection of vintage Airstream caravans nestle beneath the backdrop of Table Mountain. Each of the 7 two-sleeper trailer suites have been conceptualized and designed by local artists and makes for an accommodation destination like no other. Less
