Working just across the road and using frequently, it's very evident that more upmarket overseas boutique stores are finding a home here, especially UK brands. Competition growing, which keeps a lid on the prices too.

this shopping mall is one of the biggest I have ever visited. There are so many brands that its very difficult to resist shopping and impossible to cover the mall completely in a days time. Got a free day in Capetown and you are a shopoholic then this is the place to be

So many shops and eateries under one roof. So nice to be able to shop from 9am to 9pm too. Lots of lovely restaurants and food chains too so that you can do all your shopping. Parking usually fairly easy too.

Many parking area's outside the mall at various entrances. Ensure you wear comfy shoes as the mall is very large, one of the largest in south Africa. Various quality department stores and satellite shops. Cinema on hand with various restaurants.

Great variety of retail outlets - possible every store you could think off and all the sales people were really pleasant and helpful. Although the variety of sit down restaurants could use an increase. Toilets were clean and even though it was super busy. Parking was a bit challenging to us - as we aren't residents, we didn't know all... More

great shopping centre where you can buy anything you need. The prices are about 30% cheaper in Canal Walk than in Waterfront. Canal walk could build some nice restaurant areas outside by the canal. And it would be perfect if there would be a metro connecton fron canal walks basement to the city

There always enough things to do at Canal Walk with all major retail outlets present. Lots of eating choices and the parking is very reasonable. Ate at the Dros on this visit and was good. Always a player to shop at canal walk

Attention has been taken for the customers outside of the shops in the public areas. They are clean, spacious and comfortable. The granite/mock marble benches are well spaced and comfortable. The centre has the usual mix of the big boys as well as a nice sprinkling of boutique shops. An additional drawcard is the science section of the centre. Canal... More

A really comprehensive shopping experience offering restaurants and activities. Conveniently situated between the northern and southern suburbs of Cape Town and adjacent to Ratanga Junction
