The restaurant has nice views of the harbour and waterfront........

My wife and I visited Sevruga on our last night in Cape Town before touring the Garden Route down to Port Elizabeth. We called in without a reservation. Had to wait for ten minutes in the long bar, where we enjoyed a glass of South African fizz. Once at our table we placed our order duck... read more

We got there and had to wait 15min for wine glasses after the wine was placed on the table, they didn't have any clean glasses. They had our order wrong and the quality of the food is below average.

The place was busy and we reserved days in advance. The food was expensive by SA standards but great for foreigners with the FX advantages existing currently. The beef fillet main was very good and cooked well. Similarly the chocolate dessert was delicious. The waiters remembered who ordered what which made it easy for all of us at the table.... More

A difficult one to comment on as the ambiance was great, the staff were friendly and the food was really good, as was the presentation of each dish. Bordering on "fine dining" But, all spoilt by painfully slow service. If my experience is anything to go by, then if going out for dinner at the Sevruga, allow at least 2... More

We ordered 2 seafood platters - it took over 2 hours for the food to arrive and it was cold. Extremely disappointed with the service & quality. They were very busy, but that's not an excuse if you charge the kind of money they do.

What a great way to start my Cape Town vacation. I was there for lunch and started with a wonderful glass of wine and the best Dim Sum. My favorite was the steamed duck, honey and ginger. For the main course; Tuna salad. The tuna was perfectly prepared-seared and had a wonderful combination of avocado, zucchini and other veggies. The... More

I met friends here for a reunion on friday. The service was immaculate, exactly what I would expect from a restaurant of its stature. The cocktails were made in good time and all very well made, all our dishes were delicious. If your friends or family would like to go here but you don't eat seafood, you have nothing to... More

We had a meal with friends, there were nine of us, the table was cramped, the restaurant was very, very busy, the waiter was rushed of his feet .The menu was OK, we have had better at the V&A Waterfront, but what we had was of an extremely good quality. The price was above average; the location of the restaurant... More

Lovely experience and simply fabulous food. Our waiter could not have been more attentive and never too pushy. Great evening and typically brilliant South African prices.
