My family and I, including my elderly/frail mother of 83 recently frequented Primi Wharf - over many years one of our favorite restaurants in the V & A. As always a most pleasant and memorable experience. Despite being extremely busy during December 2016, we were welcomed, spoilt and treated like royalty. In this regard, Hassan Berdai paid special attention, as... More

Went to Primi to kill some time before catching a movie. The place was packed as expected, but we were greeted by the most friendly waitress trying to get us a table near the window. We expected the service to be slow but we placed our order and time and again the waiters would come and give us an update... More

You cannot deny the spectacular view that this place has to offer and I initially chose it for that reason only. But, to be honest, it offers more than that. I have found the service to be consistently good - my waitrons have always been friendly and welcoming and extremely helpful. Nosipho was our waitron this last time and she... More

We have had the worst experience at V&A Waterfront Primi on New Years Eve. Upon arriving at about 9pm we were told to stand in a long queue to wait for a table. After 1.5 hours we found out that there was a set menu for R350pp and tables outside for R2000 a piece. Tables at this price was available... More

Great view of the bay, if you sit on the one side you can get great sunsets from this side. Good for sundowners. Unfortunately the hostess was quite rude, we tried to make a reservation to get a sunset view table but was told you cannot reserve tables? Strange I know. One of the food orders was wrong and had...

The drink service was quick,food came out after 5 mins we had ordered and the fresh bread, the garlic... More

So disappointed. We have been coming to this restaurant every week for years. Their food quality and friendly staff and fairly reasonable pricing was very attractive for local families to frequent this restaurant. Unfortunately, having gone away for a 2 week holiday and returning, I was horrified to see that their menus had changed and their prices had gone up... More

I have eaten here twice, and on both occasions the service was excellent, the cocktails cold, and the food delicous. The mid-range dishes veer from pasta to burgers, ciabattas etc. Every dish is attractively served. The vibe is friendly and relaxed. One can choose a window seat with a breathtaking view over the sea. Wines (by the glass) are served... More
