With panoramic views of Signal Hill, Signal Restaurant provides a welcome setting on the water's edge. The menu is a unique combination of flavours incorporating influences from the many cultures that called upon this region in days gone by. The aged yellowwood furniture juxtaposed with crisp white linen, all skillfully positioned in the glow of the eccentric hand-crafted chandeliers sets the atmosphere for a new level of hip hotel dining.

My friend and I, who once in a while have a tasting menu with wine pairings at fine dining restaurants in the states, were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price and very high quality of our experience here. The food was delicious and beauifully served and the wines ( although all from one winery) were appropriate for each course.

We aimed to have our pre-dinner drinks at Bascule Bar (Cape Grace Hotel), but a loud batchelorette party made us opt for the quieter Signal Bar (Cape Grace Hotel). The drinks menu offers a large variety of premium drinks and the cocktail list did not disappoint. The Kir Royale was my top choice, while the others enjoyed the gin- and... More

Living in Cape Town, my wife and I would normally have had lunch or dinner at the restaurant but we both had early morning meetings in the city and decided to have breakfast at Signal Restaurant which is at the luxurious Cape Grace Hotel. The hotel and setting is beautiful and parking is easy. I had my favourite, Eggs Benedict... More
