Nice location, but need to up your game...

The location is stunning, with the Bay and Table Mountain in the background. We didn't take long to get a seat...it was after 2pm on a Sunday. Drinks time was an average wait of 15 minutes...however, it took about 45 minutes to get our starters...which did not sit well with us, as it was then way... read more

The restaurant has gone through two different owners and now closed. This closure took place in August 2014 In Place you have a Greek Restaurant called Captain Kitchen.

Other than the views, this restaurant seems unaware of its customers and serves up average food in their own time! We will not be going back anytime soon.

We have been to this restaurant several times, last about 6 months ago and it was usually above average. So we decided to come back last night for having dinner here, which was my birthday. But what a disappointment: Most tables were not wiped and not set up, even when they were not busy at all (only 3 tables occupied... More

We went here because we've been several times to the one in Johannesburg and it is always fantastic. This restaurant was close on empty. The portions in comparison to Joburg are very small. My food was not very pleasant, it was too spicey and there was no mention on the menu or by the waiter that it was a spicey... More

Pathetic customer service, absent-minded waiters and ridiculous waiting time! It took them an entire half an hour to bring our drinks. After finally receiving our drinks, we waited another 20 minute to actually order our main meal! Never going back. Probably the worst experience I've had at a restaurant to date!

We enjoyed a most delectable meal of soups, Lamb Shank, Lamb pie, Oxtail, Karoo Braai and delicious deserts at this great restaurant with amazing views of Table mountain and Robben Island. The service was very, very slow but in the South African tradition, allowed for a great family visit around the table and enjoyment of the local performers coming to... More
