The service provided by the staff is attentive and responsive. The food is good and fairly substantial so ensure that you have your appetite with you. The seafood eaten was well prepared and very tasty.

We only had breakfast here, but there were many choices - fruit, pastry, meats, cheeses, bread etc. with nice indoor or outdoor waterfront views.

I was really surprised by the size of the hamburger and fries - but it was amazing. When I am back in Cape Town I will definitely be back here.

Many visitors end up eating at Oyo because of its convenient location. The view over the harbor and Table Mountain is excellent, and the good is good, but not extraordinary.

The great thing... More

We didn't book at any other restaurants and this was the only one that could accommodate us. So we were a bit cautious, but what a nice surprise. Food was good, waiter was well informed. Even the cocktails were well presented. We were pleasantly surprised by this place.

We ate and drank here numerous times during our stay in Cape Town, including breakfast and every meal was excellent. The food menu is wide ranging and the cocktails are very nice!

The place is a curiosity - based in the V&A Hotel is has a great view out over towards table mountain and the terrace is very comfortable.
