A second visit - and definitely has to be the best of airport restuarants in South Africa. Friendly and efficient staff. A bit of a wait for coffees but food was delivered timeously. Beautifully presented, fresh and hot!

Our first meal as soon as we arrived in Cape Town was here. The girl at the reception welcomed us and kindly suggested what to choose according to our taste. Very good food.

The guys served the best Rock Shandy I had in years. The pasta was good and the staff was really friendly - I will visit them again

The chicken Caesar wrap was filling but not very exciting. It will tide you over until you reach your final destination for a proper meal.

Came to have something to drink with my husband before his flight. We did not eat but if the service is anything to go by, would not want the frustration before a flight to be honest.

Last Friday night, the 16th of December 2016, my family and I visited the Primi Caffe for an early supper prior to our flight to Johannesburg.

We popped in last night for dinner. The Caffe was not busy at all. We got served quickly but then we noticed how dirty the table was and asked for it to be cleaned up. My husband asked if the floor could be swept, as there was crayons but the waitress disregarded the request. I took a few photo's and... More
