We had a good first night in Cape Town dinner here. A good variety of hot breads with hummus dips was a great start. The highlights of the meal were the Parmesan truffle fries, springbok bobotie, sticky toffee pudding. Give the ostrich a miss - a little too tough and tasteless. Service is somewhat cold and detached.

We tested this restaurant with friends. Foods was really good, oroginal and well presented. The restaurant is very classy. The sommelier attitude wasn't really professional but anyways he suggested us great wines (by the way the most expensive ones). Globally an high level restaurant

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner here the first night of our stay at the Cape Grace. We arrived at 10am and did a whirlwind tour of the city so by dinnertime we were quite tired and planned to have a convenient dinner at the hotel restaurant. We did not have a reservation (it was a Tuesday) and... More

Restaurants in hotels are often a disappointment. Signals is not. The menu and service were excellent, consistent with the overall quality of the Cape Grace. Great wine list and excellent menu.

Before dinner we had a drink in the adjacent bar which was pleasant but slightly marred by the constant opening and closing of the outside door as guests came in from the Bascule Bar nearby and made us feel we were sitting in a corridor. We had... More

Going to spend some time in Cape Town soon and reading the reviews of Signal Restaurant it sounded like the sort dining experience we were looking for and the reviews all looked very good. However, having put in a request for a reservation through their official site and not had a response, we e-mailed the restaurant direct and nearly three... More
