We stayed at the hotel and ate breakfast here both mornings -AWESOME! Mimosas, great juices and coffee and fantastic food. On top of this the staff was top notch and attentive. Highly recommend it....The hotel also has a great whisky bar for the evenings - just saying:)

What a lovely restaurant! The setting is charming, luxurious but comfortable and relaxed at the same time. The view of the private marina and mountain is wonderful. The service was profecional, timely and friendly. The food choice, presentation and quality was great. The staff is genuinely happy to attend to all your needs. A special mention to Linda - thank...

The food here is really good. There were 8 of us so we were able to share and taste quite a few of the dishes. The springbok and scallops were excellent (both recommended by the waiter). Pricey by SA standards, but this is a fine dining restaurant with excellent food and service.

I visited a couple weeks ago to celebrate a friend's birthday. Service, food and decor absolutely first class! Pricey dinner menu but affordable, delicious lunch time options.

We are hear last night for our Wedding Anniversary. The location was perfect, staff superb and food amazing. Really enjoyed tasting menu with wine pairing. The only course that was a slight let down was the Fillet steak but only because of the high standard set by the first 3 courses.

Great opportunity to enjoy their wine pairing and food, we were not staying at Cape Grace but had opportunity to dine at Signal. Elegant atmosphere, confident staff, food and wine journey truly clever - highly recommend and don't miss a chance for a Whiskey nightcap in Bascule afterwards - amazing evening.

Springbok, scallops and wine were great. With conversion from USD$, the value is tremendous for what you get. Very elegant atmosphere in the waterfront area.

Description
With panoramic views of Signal Hill, Signal Restaurant provides a welcome setting on the water's edge. The menu is a unique combination of flavours incorporating influences from the many cultures that called upon this region in days gone by. The aged yellowwood furniture juxtaposed with crisp white linen, all skillfully positioned in the glow of the eccentric hand-crafted chandeliers sets the atmosphere for a new level of hip hotel dining.
