We arrived (two people) without a reservation on a busy night and were seated nicely within 10 minutes, having ordered starters in the attractive bar area. All the food was top notch and well-presented, service was cordial and pleasant, and the ambience has a buzzy (if slightly crowded) feel to it. Sevruga is in the heart of the Waterfront, so... More

I can't fault Sevruga on location, service (hostess and waitress) and food (fresh ingredients and great flavor). We were lucky to get a table without having a booking, as a result getting a table next to the bathroom..... could smell the chemicals. Not bad value for money in the waterfront.....if you choose your dishes carefully. I will go back but... More

We came down from signal hill freezing and looking for somewhere to get warm and have dinner and the fates smiled upon as we settled on Sevruga. The food was spectacular- we stayed in the seafood section and ate oysters, salmon, tuna steak, prawns and muscles. Each were divine and accompanied by good but inexpensive wine. But what really made... More

Visited twice, First time was truly superb. Very attentive, great food and nice atmosphere. However the second time wasn't so great. Poor quality waiter spoilt the evening. Also very noisy this time and not a great table. Strangely food was mediocre too.

We started with oysters and calamari followed by fish with langoustines and steak. All the dishes were cooked to perfection. There was a great choice of reasonable priced wines. Our waiter was a little forgetful but was a great character. Fortunately another waiter Greg managed to sort out a couple of issues and overall the evening was lovely.

Enjoyed a light and tasty lunch. Sushi and dim sum Sunday specials make it a really good value lunch time venue, whilst enjoying the view and setting. Service could however be improved.

We popped in for a late lunch. Offered choice of tables, nice setting, good service and the food was very enjoyable and well presented. A very enjoyable experience along with a nice bottle of wine.

The Waterfront is frenetic at this time of the year and if you haven't booked a restaurant you generally won't get in for dinner. We tried our luck on Monday evening. As expected the restaurant was full but rather than turning us away we were shown to the bar and had drinks while we waited for a table. We ended... More

Sevruga is a culmination of a lifetime of work, and our complete dedication to perfection. Although perfection is almost always a step away, we always endeavour to exceed your wildest expectations, offerings lush interiors, exquisite dining and an intimate atmosphere seating up to 350. From the New York style entrance, polished marble and solid wooden floors, to the fabulous American walnut bar counter and designer chairs with opulent, imported fabric, it is clear that no expense has been spared. Our philosophy when creating Sevruga was the same as when we create our signature dishes. We use the best possible raw ingredients, combined with professional and creative suppliers and craftsmen to create a truly amazing experience. An elaborate menu offering a vast array of wines and meals ranging from humble dishes to taste sensations, with more complex tastes and flavours. The service is relaxed yet professional, while the view from both inside the restaurant and out on the terrace, will take your breath away! As part of giving Sevruga customers an all-round experience, a Functions Manager for tour and incentive groups is always on hand and, from the entrance to the kitchen, Sevruga has steadfast principles in place to guarantee an over-all experience of grandeur. With especially designed set menus, we can cater for any function. It's no wonder that every now and then we are delighted to have famous faces, both local and international, grace our establishment. A-list Hollywood stars such as Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart and Tom Hardy, have been spotted dining at Sevruga, as well as our beautiful Benoni Blom Charlize Theron.
