Consistently good

We always try to include a visit here when in Cape Town. On a beautiful autumn day it is a great place to soak up the sun and atmosphere of the V&A Waterfront. We usually opt for their Sushi Specials but chose the Tuna Loin and Salmon Wellington instead. Glad we did as they were both wonderful... read more

Went recently to Sevruga for the first time. It was a pretty windy Night. My friends were already seated so I joined them they all had a nice blanket but the waiter never offered one to me. Order was taken pretty fast. My drink served immediately. My Curry was good but the rice was unfortunately cold. I would have appreciated... More

Its on the dock at waterfront in cape town, so a nice vibe and great view of the docks, not the sea or beach. Its very trendy and posh but wasn't as pretentious as I thought it would be. The food is quite expensive for locals, but the food was excellent, "photo food" very nicely served and everyone's food was... More

Visited Sevruga for the first time as we were told the sushi is the best in town... When we arrived we had a nice table on the side, lovely seating area. Service is average and very slow. A very touristy location what we saw as there big tables with 20 pax and more... Limited sushi menu, had the vegetarian sushi,... More

We were really excited to visit this restaurant for its supposedly very good sushi. Of course, South Africa is known for its wonderful seafood so we assumed that the sushi must be good, too, and Sevruga was one of the highest-ranking of the sushi restaurants. Unfortunately, we assumed wrong. The sushi was terrible and the choices were limited. Almost 90%... More

This review has taken a while to be put up, but I still feel the need to say this. On Valentines Day this year my partner and I felt like a combination of dim sum and sushi. It was a lovely day and so we made a reservation here. The hostess was very polite; we arrived early so we had... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat lunch and were prepared to wait a little while to be ushered to an outside table next to the dockside walkway. The fish lunch was fabulous and the service was excellent given how popular and busy this restaurant is. The location makes it even more attractive as an excellent lunch venue

Sevruga was recommended to me by a good friend who "has experience in these things". He was right - it is an excellent restaurant. Straight from the welcome desk to a nice table outside, but with an umbrella that provided the shade required. An interesting menu with options I had not tried before. Reasonably busy for a lunchtime with not... More

Enjoyed a nice bit of sushi here and the setting is quite cool. Overlooking the harbour side with all its hustle and bustle is interesting and the clientele is definitely upmarket. Recommended for drinks/cocktails or a bit of sushi or both. Enjoy.
