“A carnivores nirvana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

My wife surrendered to my request for a decent steak and wow I was not disappointed, right on the waterfront , it's very popular in the evening especially if the wind is up so rush is on for inside. Be prepared for a wait but a drink at the bar where diners can also eat is very pleasant experience. Once seated we had a very obliging waiter that explained the cuts of meat and sizes available 250g for the sensible 1kg for those who wish to impersonate a man vs food episode. The choice of cuts is excellent and ways in which it can be cooked are also well varied. The fish selection is also awesome as well as choice of game meats. To boot the have a huge wine selection with quite a few available by the glass a pleasant surprise to see. Service very good and food excellent, and amazing creamed spinach. A must try it was shame I was unable to emulate man vs food but, I am sure a bag to go is in order next time

“Good food and good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I chose this restaurant on the Waterfront as it was a short walking distance from our hotel. Seafood was very fresh.On the day we visited they had baby Kingklip fish on the menu which was very good. My steak was also very good. Plenty of wine to choose. Great view of the Waterfront from outside dining area.

“Excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I've had a very nice evening with my friend at this good and popular restaurant directly located at the V&A Waterfront. Extremely good + attentive service (thank you Jean!) and nice food. They have a wine card with 250 open wines to choose from! Panoramic views onto table mountain are for free. You should definitively make a reservation and specify whether you want to sit outside or inside.

“Pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Very popular restaurant located on the water front. Reservations recommended as it gets very busy even on week nights. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly service and good menu. Extensive wine list but only limited to South African wines.
