Decided on a whim to take my wife to 1999 and managed to secure a table in a restaurant that was clearly busy.We ordered a variety of starters and a calamari salad.The salad was excellent but the starters disappointed somewhat in that the expected melody...of different tastes was not forthcoming.Take note that this restaurant is not cheap by any means!Pleasing is that the owner/managers deal with the ordering and delivery of meals.More

Was recommended to come here by a local and what a great find. Mona was an excellent hostess, knowledgeable in food and wine. Really fresh ingredients and a wide selection of choices. I came for lunch but I suspect dinner is just as good. Will...visit again. Highly recommended as a high dining restaurant with mid range pricing.More

Had a fantastic birthday lunch with a large family gathering. great service by Mona, and delicious food as always. The duck, fish cakes and starter options are always excellent! Main of seared tuna was a winning dish!

We went to CAFE 1999 to celebrate my grand daughter’s outstanding matric results. The waitress MONA was very helpful, courteous and efficient.As usual the food was delivered on time. The presentation and taste were outstanding. The AMUSE Bouche was welcome. I liked the line fish...special, Cape salmon , just cooked right and very tasty. The duck pancake is a must. All the desserts were mouth watering delicious! Highly recommend.More

I was advised that they had just changed the menu. The gent went through the specials and the Cape Salmon on gnocchi with pesto and capers caught my attention. It was brilliant and possible one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. The...gent advised that the marinade the fish to make it more tender. Brilliant! I loved the pesto and capers as well. Go on, book a table and order the Cape Salmon. I want you to keep it on the menu so I get to order it again. Not to forget the orange cake desert with an espresso and grappa.More
