I just loved the atmosphere in this restaurant. Situated in V&A waterfront near big wheel. Do yourself a favour and order from their cocktail menu. Do not order the ones you know be bold and just order one of the ones unknown. You will not be dissapointed. The food is cooked to perfection from starters right through to dessert. Portions...

The food is delicious and plentiful as well as being delightfully presented.My husband's Burger was mouthwateringly appetizing and my mezze was generous and piquant. It was so magical sitting almost on the water and drinking in(besides our delicious wine) the views of Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and the Harbour entrance as well as the chartered boats berthed right next to...

Like my previous review, this nice restaurant just did not quite live up to our last visit 4 years ago. Food was ok and service same but all in all, it seems the waterfront just doesn't deliver the same value and quality as last time.

The food was OK, the service too, the restaurant is coated in the waterfront, very crowded but the quality of what we ate was very good. Nice choice

Sevruga is a beautiful restaurant on the waterfront that provides a fine dining experience in an excellent location. The front-of-house staff was quite friendly and helped us to move to a table that was not directly in the line of the draft from one of the windows. I recommend their langostine and kingklip served on mash. Overall, we enjoyed our... More

My girlfriends and I went for lunch at Sevruga for my birthday. We had an incredible time. Cocktails were delicious and didnt take long at all. Food was incredibly tasty and prices are fantastic for the waterfront. I find other restaurants very over priced. The waiter bought a free desert with 'Happy Birthday' written on the plate which was a... More

Service definitely needs to be improved; had us waiting while many tables were open, and funny after 15 minutes, someone came to us and asked if we were waiting for a table, seriously, this is such disorganizes staff. After that they took 15 min to bring out wine from the bar to out table and massed up with out appetizer... More

Wife had grilled Tiger Prawns on two occasions. First time they were quite OK, although not super fresh. The second time they were plainly stale. I had sushi which seemed fresh but was very heavy on rice and very light on tuna. For good "bang for your buck" sushi, go to Willoughby's inside the Waterfront mall. For top end, of... More

Date night found us in this enviably located waterside eatery. No reservation but a table was found promptly. Nice menu and wine list. Starter's served within minutes but we waited over an hour from the clearing of our starters to receiving our main courses - which would have been fine if they had been worth waiting for. Both dishes were... More

Given wine to taste while we waited for a table which was a good start. Great view from our table which was outside but covered so we kept warm. The waiter was enthusiastic and informative. The Shiraz was one of the best I have tasted. We shared the sushi started very tasty. The salmon dish was good. Prices reasonable. Gave... More

Sevruga is a culmination of a lifetime of work, and our complete dedication to perfection. Although perfection is almost always a step away, we always endeavour to exceed your wildest expectations, offerings lush interiors, exquisite dining and an intimate atmosphere seating up to 350. From the New York style entrance, polished marble and solid wooden floors, to the fabulous American walnut bar counter and designer chairs with opulent, imported fabric, it is clear that no expense has been spared. Our philosophy when creating Sevruga was the same as when we create our signature dishes. We use the best possible raw ingredients, combined with professional and creative suppliers and craftsmen to create a truly amazing experience. An elaborate menu offering a vast array of wines and meals ranging from humble dishes to taste sensations, with more complex tastes and flavours. The service is relaxed yet professional, while the view from both inside the restaurant and out on the terrace, will take your breath away! As part of giving Sevruga customers an all-round experience, a Functions Manager for tour and incentive groups is always on hand and, from the entrance to the kitchen, Sevruga has steadfast principles in place to guarantee an over-all experience of grandeur. With especially designed set menus, we can cater for any function. It's no wonder that every now and then we are delighted to have famous faces, both local and international, grace our establishment. A-list Hollywood stars such as Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart and Tom Hardy, have been spotted dining at Sevruga, as well as our beautiful Benoni Blom Charlize Theron.
