We enjoyed a nice dinner with good local seafood and wines. Location is a bit difficult to find in the Waterfront complex, but worth the search.

We always round off trips to Cape Town by visiting this restaurant on our last night. My favourite is the shellfish platter. The food service and wine were all first rate

This restaurant serves wonderful food with exceptional service . Great atmosphere and is upstairs so has great views over the Waterfront . It was recommended to us and I would say it is a must visit when in Capetown.

Great location on the water with enclosed outdoor seating. I had the fish seafood platter and my husband had the chicken breast. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the waitress was great.

Well, when we are in Cape Town, we normally go here, but this time, we thought we should gos somewhere else. But guess what, in the end, we passed by around 15:30 and kindly asked if they could squeeze us in at 19:00hrs. Yes, but you have to sit inside and maybe that is better as the wind will quite...

Really good food with lots of choices, the wine was great as well as the service. If it hadn't been for the fact that the restaurant is HUGE - which takes away a bit of the more intimate/cost/quiet and exclusive atmosphere it would've gotten 5/5. We would recommend it and go back though!

The best Smoked Salmon starter is here. The helping so generous that the ordered huge helping of Salmon as a main meal could almost not be eaten, except for the delicious flavour and expert preparation. The service was faultless and the views and ambience are an essential experience for ALL overseas visitors.

We were a large group having dinner at this restaurant. The views are amazing. Very good service, taking in consideration the big group. Seafood dishes were excellent. The restaurant is very big, so it lacks atmosphere.

The food here is very good but for a restaurant that advertises itself as the best restaurant in Cape Town, we were sorely disappointed. We expected impeccable service, and food quality to match the prices. All our food was very good (calamari, trio of fish, beef) but none of it was exceptional. The special was not available even though we... More
