Great Food

This restaurant is so popular that we ended up in the second seati at 20h30 it was still crowded with guests from teh first seating so we had to wait for a short while before our table was ready. The restaurant stayed full for the rest of the evening, so it was very busy and noisy. The food is... read more

This restaurant is truly excellent in every way. Our family of four (inc two opinionated teenagers) had a fun time choosing from the quirky menu and then devouring our choices with delight. Not a single dish disappointed. Lovely setting overlooking Cape Town at night; cool design of venue; top-notch service. We eat out a lot in NYC and in London;... More

A posh and hip restaurant feather numerous small and creative dishes. Not being familiar with the fare, we asked our server to create an assortment of their best dished. He did not disappoint. All were good but the calamari and fillet were truly superb as was the chocolate desert.

I was a bit dubious of the tapas concept. Tapas to me suggests it will all come in a rush and I'll be home watching rubbish TV by 9 o'clock. In fact you chose everything and they turn it into a sensible order and bring it out at the right time. Sit at the bar if you're 2-3 as you... More

The food is average and the portions very small, we had to spend about 500-600 Rand before we were satisfied( including a glass of wine). The staff is courteous but I would never go back there. There are a lot of other fine restaurants in Cape Town.

What a great vibe. The service is excellent and even though the place is very busy they get your order right and ensures that your glass is kept toped up. We can only recommend this place if you are ok with a noisy vibe.

Fantastic restaurant - delicious tapas, great staff, buzzy atmosphere. It was our first night in Cape Town and I had been told to book weeks in advance and it lived up to every expectation. We didn't need 8 puddings between 4 of us but we ate them anyway!

Absolutely delicious. Every course was excellent, as were the cocktails. And given the quality of the meal, I also thought it was well priced. It is a little tough to find on an upper level of the Old Biscuit Mill, but they had very helpful staff guiding you step by step. Order the Smoked Beef Fillet with Black Pepper and... More

My son booked a special treat for my 60th birthday when I went on a trip to Cape Town. The food was surprising and delicious- I highly recommend. It is fun to try several dishes and share. Unexpected view from the top of a building- sophisticated atmosphere.

The food was really good, but the cocktails were fantastic! It is located on the 4th or 5th floor of a building with a nice view of the bay. Our server was great and the food was delicious!
