The dinner was a buffet. Which we were not aware of. There was a wide variety. However the beef oxtail that was the favourite was finished quickly and not re-filled. Drinks prices were above average. The staff were very friendly and very helpful which helps make the nice very enjoyable.

While waiting to check-in at the Aha Inn hotel, I decided to try their in-house restaurant. Received very good, friendly service from Constance. Ordered the Game (kudu) Carpaccio which was excellent! So glad to try them out in spite of not so great reviews in TripAdvisor. Would definitely have more meals here during my stay. Prices are very reasonable, starters... More

The booking did not start off too well as I had to phone twice - the hotel receptionist informed me they were most probably too busy with breakfast and asked me to phone again later. Which I did and then made a booking. However, upon our arrival, they could not find our booking. Fortunately there was a lvoely big table... More

You might not think A/C is important but in the middle of Cape Town's summer, it is. The Dish has that plus a strong bar and a good European menu. Try to prawns, the pasta and the kingklip. Plus the gin and tonic. Wine list is just OK.

Sitting at your restaurant as I type this. Been waiting for hour and a half. Haven't seen a waiter for last hour. Some food would be nice.

My partner and I came here on a Tuesday night and had wonderful service and great food. The mussels were beautifully cooked, and my partner loved his wedges. For mains we both had a steak which was lovely, the mashed potato was DIVINE and the sauces were also delicious. I was really skeptical after reading the reviewed but I needn't... More

looks can be deceiving! blown away by the interior design/decor which could very well be mistaken for a beach/Atlantic Seaboard/Camps Bay promenade facing restaurant. slick, clean, trendy, high ceilings with white wooden beams. pork ribs were some of THE BEST I have tasted in Cape Town! our waiter: Anita was EXCELLENT --> friendly, efficient AND with a personality!

Breakfast was excellent. Quite a variety of food to choose from. But dinner was kind of limited though it was a buffet.

Obviously the restaurant is not really geared for walk ins but for the hotel guests. The staff are not that welcoming until I mentioned that I would have to mention the service. Food is average with prices not for the average sa. Will definitely not go back again

I went for lunch, so Upon arrival we was greeted by many waiters only to find that we were the only people for lunch, a bit weird but ok.. Clearly no reservation needed.. Any way.. I liked the part that they made the food in front of us. We sat a few tables away from the door.. And noticed the... More
