Sevruga is a culmination of a lifetime of work, and our complete dedication to perfection. Although perfection is almost always a step away, we always endeavour to exceed your wildest expectations, offerings lush interiors, exquisite dining and an intimate atmosphere seating up to 350. From the New York style entrance, polished marble and solid wooden floors, to the fabulous American walnut bar counter and designer chairs with opulent, imported fabric, it is clear that no expense has been spared. Our philosophy when creating Sevruga was the same as when we create our signature dishes. We use the best possible raw ingredients, combined with professional and creative suppliers and craftsmen to create a truly amazing experience. An elaborate menu offering a vast array of wines and meals ranging from humble dishes to taste sensations, with more complex tastes and flavours. The service is relaxed yet professional, while the view from both inside the restaurant and out on the terrace, will take your breath away! As part of giving Sevruga customers an all-round experience, a Functions Manager for tour and incentive groups is always on hand and, from the entrance to the kitchen, Sevruga has steadfast principles in place to guarantee an over-all experience of grandeur. With especially designed set menus, we can cater for any function. It's no wonder that every now and then we are delighted to have famous faces, both local and international, grace our establishment. A-list Hollywood stars such as Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart and Tom Hardy, have been spotted dining at Sevruga, as well as our beautiful Benoni Blom Charlize Theron.

Don't ask for oysters ... or Dim Sum

Since our last visit, the patio has been closed in and that's a good thing with the CT weather, which ranges from extremely hot, to rainy and cold. We were there on Thursday for lunch and after being seated, we ordered, or rather tried to order starters - firstly there were no oysters in stock, and... read more

Coming into Sevruga - the reception lady was unfriendly and delivered the bare minimum : the nearest table to the front entrance! However our staff Ismael and Faith were extremely kind and professional!! Thanx to their exceptional service we will return

We chose this restaurant for its elegant appearance, situated as it is on a prime site on the V and A Waterfront. We had a lovely table looking out onto the harbour. Our greeting was warm and professional and our waiter most attentive. Both the menu and the wine list were extensive. After choosing wine I had a Duck Pate.... More

Let me say that their chocolate fondant is one of the best I have tasted. Waiters, managers like are very business driven and tend to lack the human intimacy, tried the creme brule twice and they got it wrong, perhaps try the chocolate fondant for dessert you won't go wrong.

We ate at Sevruga as the guest of business colleagues. The place was packed with tourists from a big cruise liner. I wanted to stand up on my chair and tell all of them that South African food is way better than what was being served. Over cooked, sloppily plated, tough meat. The service was professional, but the food was... More

Very nice place to eat, considering the atmosphere and views which the Waterfront offers. The sushi we had was also very good.

We had big expectations after reading about the restaurant before visiting. The reality did not match. The food was good but not spectacular and the level not consistent. Specially sushi was really weak.

We the here one night, they went out of there way to cater for my glutton free diet. It was good food, good value. I did note that some of the staff were not treated particularly well and were spoke to in a defining manner.

Had a really great evening at this restaurant. Didn't have any Sushi but if you're into that then you wouldn't be disappointed - vast choice. We had the Tuna which was really delicious and also a large portion size - cooked to our request. My husband had the langoustine with white fish which he said was amazing. Excellent value at...
