It is always good to find a new restaurant
When ever we visit Cape Town.
SeaBreeze is a welcome addition.
The menu changes daily which we loved
But the use of ingredients lacked a little.
To us it seemed that the heavier flavoured fish such as dorado ( mahi mahi ) and swordfish came with the lighter side dishes. Ie salad cuscus lentils etc. The lighter more delicate fish suck as yellowtail, kingklip or mussels came as a curry with very little change on both visits. Just seemed the fish changed rather than the whole dish.
The chef, being British has great use of veggies which you rarely see on a menu in Cape Town.
The chef did produce a great Moules marinière after asking if it was possible
To have this dish without curry.
That’s the mark of a great chef.
The restaurant itself is very uncomfortable. The seating around the edge is to short in the seat and the back of you is a cushion attached to the wall which forces you to lean forward.
If you look you will notice most people
Fidgeting. The table are of a very bad design, again uncomfortable as you have very little room for your legs. Again if you look around. You will see the guys trying to get a grasp of how to sit and the ladies sitting side-saddle.
All being said. The food is great. Waiters are very friendly, not sure about the T-shirt’s as a uniform as if gives a cheep fish and chip shop impression.
Chef is great. Very inventive but to us,
Very little change to be had from most restaurants in Cape Town.
Let’s hope he will find his own identity
As this could be the new star of Cape Town cuisine.
