The decor is crisp and clean. The menu has lots of choice. The staff are highly attentive. I ordered the lamb burger and it just didn't work for me; there was an undercurrent of tart sauce that didn't let the lamb through. And the fries weren't crisp. Oh well.

It used to be called Sand Bar and it was great . Changed over few year ago and still a good place to have a drink in the sun or a bite to eat in Camps bay ! Strawberry daiquiri is excellent served in a large jar glass.

A great place for a lunch in the sun or just a place to stop for a coffee or a beer. I had the Club Sandwich which had an Indian slant and was stunning. Lovely place, with great service

The Buffet Breakfast at Mint was awesome especially if you are a sucker for fresh pastries:) The breakfast selection had such a variety that you can take a lot of time just deciding on what to have... so I would advise you to go early to have enough time to sample a little of everything you fancy! They even have... More

Convenient when staying in the hotel, however the food and service is very much average. The Karoo Lamp of 3 large sumptious chops turned out to be 4 skinny ones

We had dinner here because we were staying at the hotel and arrived late. The only thing going for it is convenience. The menu said burgers would be cooked well done and I asked if an adjustmention could be made and was told no so we had mushroom/chicken pasta. it was ok. It is very, very loud. No reason to...

We had a lovely night! We went for dinner with my family and the service was amazing! Always had someone to assist. Food was warm and cooked to perfection! We sat at a nice round table as we were 6 and got to have everyone part of the conversation! Definitely a must if you around cape town central!
