Our dim sum appetizer was excellent. We shared a seafood platter with an additional langoustine- tasty but only average.

Celebrated a birthday party last night with the Winter menu. Overall we felt it was great value for money and everyone was very satisfied with their food. The food wasn't the sort of meal you'd tell everyone about on Facebook, but it was very satisfactory. Disappointed by the hostess though - an asian-looking woman - who came across as very... More

Our group was looking for a restaurant that had some variety and this was it. All the staff were very pleasant and the food was delicious. Some had steaks, some seafood, and some pasta and all was delicious. Very nice atmosphere and good wine selection. Would for sure eat here again.

Visited Sevruga in August for a birthday lunch with my husband. The food was lacking in flavour and it was dumped on the plate as if it was being served to a desperate homeless dog. I was planning on having dessert but was put off, i didn't want to be insulted any further.

We made a reservation the day before and were seated next to the floor to ceiling glass doors. A beautiful view of Table Mountain and the goings on at the V&A Waterfront. We had the kingslip & langostine and the Norwegian salmon. Wonderfully fresh fish expertly prepared and served. The prices were a bit higher than similar quality restaurants on... More

wife and I spent a week in Cape Town. We found this restaurant early and went three times. It never disappointed. Food was always well prepared, flavored and presented. Service was attentive but not overbearing and the wines were well paired. Try the ostrich, and fresh fish - you will love. Also - save room for one of their special... More

We went to celebrate my sisters birthday while on vacation and it was terrible: Wait time over 2 hours to get meal. When requested to speak to the manager after an hour he was rude and dismissive and told us to "have patience" Can't even say the meal was worth the wait as it was very ordinary and after waiting...

Sevruga did (almost) everything supremely well. After a wonderful sushi appetizer, we wondered if they could prepare other kinds of cuisine equally well. Here's the resounding answer: YES. Surf and turf? excellent. Springbok fillet? excellent. Wine list: very nice. Pastry dessert? Yum. Lively and casual vibe: check. The only substantive glitch: the meal slowed down a lot at the dessert... 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. You never know you might just bump into Brangalina! "The only reason to visit the V&A Waterfront". - The New York Times.
