“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Many of the shops have closed since our last visit in November so there are many empty shops now. It has lost its lovely atmosphere.

“Shopping and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is a mall that is on a few levels and offers interesting options - we enjoyed the shops which sold art and also the interesting herbal store downstairs - small but interesting. of course one can enjoy the coffee shops and clothing stores too.

“Art lovers' Joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

We are interested in art and decor and found this mall a wonderful surprise filled with innovative design, decor and, especially, South African art. We spent a whole morning looking at the beautiful paintings, homeware, photography and designs. The Spar supermarket on the ground floor also stocks interesting imported foods and chocolates and one can order 'custom made' foods. We will visit this mall again when we visit Cape Town.

“Might be good for Cape Town but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

if you are used to shopping in London or other large city I wouldn't bother. Nice architecture but a mish mash of shops, not clearly defined and nothing out of the ordinary. Parking good though!
