“Fantastic dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is a "wow" restaurant. The food is outstanding, the wine excellent. The table is "cleared" between courses with dry ice, smoking over the table. Very impressive!!!

“Mmmm Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The ocean views hook the diner immediately but the service wows by the end of the meal. The breakfast buffet is outstanding with a wide variety of international selections. Diners may also order off a menu as well. The diner is always a surprise with the chefs selecting local food creating a chef surprise for each diner.

Dear Theunis H
Thank you for your review.

I will be sharing your review with the staff as they really enjoy hearing about how our guests enjoy their experience in the Azure.
The Breakfast is a special and popular meal time in the Azure not only for the food, service and value but also that we have the Best view in Town! Hope to see you back soon!

Many Thanks

Gavin Ferreira

“What a disaster”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Over the last years Azure has slowly gone into decline ( as far as food taste is concerned ). The pork belly was very average with too much salt added. The chef managed to remove any trace of taste from the spices used in the Malay curry. There are far better restaurants in Cape Town to choose from. Quite sad, I always considered Azure my favorite.

Dear Aspen20
Thank you for your review.
I am saddened to read your review and that you had such a "bland" experience whilst in the Azure Restaurant. I must say that the Chef and I have looked into your comments and feedback to resolve these issues. Since your review; I have personally tasted the Curry and the Pork belly to eliminate any shortfalls in the dishes. I would like to apologize for your disappointing experience this time round and I can assure you that the management, staff and chef are dedicated to our guests and about creating positive and special experiences.

I hope that we will see you back in the Azure soon again in order for us to regain your trust and hopefully place Azure, back as one of your favorite Restaurants in Cape Town.

Kind Regards
Gavin Ferreira
