Nice is the view on the harbour and livelyness of the Waterfront. Not nice is the service we received. To many people attend with no real contact and concern. Waiting on the main course after having ordered and already eaten the entree they told us that the ordered Tuna was out of stock. Case closed. We were not offered a... More

I have never been so pampered by wait staff! The food was very good, I had the prawn curry which was very tasty. The prices were reasonable and it was in a great setting.

having visited Sevruga in the past, we decided to celebrate my wife's birthday at this viby V&A restaurant with it's wonderful views and ambiance. What a dissapointment! Took 30 minutes for 2 glasses of MCC to arrive. Food was on our table within 10 minutes of ordering..red wine not yet opened! My wife had braised shoulder of lamb which was... More

We took some friends to Sevruga who were visiting from France. The service was great as was the food, the only thing I had an issue with was a really odd smell inside the restaurant. We sat outside. (Thankfully it was a nice day, uncommon for winter) Just walking through the restaurant made my wife queasy. Other than that, a... More

I have eaten at Sevruga's on a number of occasions over the years. Saturday 30 August was certainly the last time. 6 of us dined on substandard sushi. Really aweful. 1 person enoyed their meal... a steak. After being sceptical due to a previous poor experience I booked at what really is a great venue in the Waterfront. I planned... More

We recently took overseas guests to Sevruga, and honestly, I should have known better having written a review a few years ago entitled "Overpriced and Overrated". Sevruga's lure is it's Waterfront location and its primary clientele is tourists. For locals, and given what one gets, it is overpriced. While the venue is vibey and trendy, the food - from an...

This is a beautiful venue, but my lamb shoulder for R135 was just plain boring. And 4 slices of vegetables don't count as vegetables. As a local, I won't be going back or recommending it

So this was the first restaurant I visited in Cape Town, and it was very good. The atmosphere is very cool and full of young people. Being in a trendy area of the city (The Waterfront), it seems to be a cool place for a variety of people to hang out. The menu is huge and varied. There is everything... More

Our first visit to this restaurant in the waterfront. Odd menu with too much on it. Should have been an early warning sign. Terrific location with great service. However, as huge fans of dumplings, my wife and I could not resist trying a lamb version and a duck version. One type was meant to be pan fried but was steamed... More

We have been here a couple of times - and previously the food was excellent and it felt like you were somewhere special. This time the menus were standard, the food was mediocre and the service was good. Not certain I will go back again when there are so many other excellent restaurants in Cape Town
