Arguably the best place to have an afternoon drink in Cape Town and watch the sun go down. Sadly, this is where the favourable experience tends to end - the reason being that there are many restaurants along the Camps Bay strip which offer superior food quality at more competitive prices. Putting it more bluntly, the food is average and overpriced.

The bar staff are always particularly helpful and the cocktail menu is amongst the best around.

It's a beautiful restaurant and the service is very good. They make great cocktails and their sushi isn't half bad either, as for their food...not so much. The prices are very high, but the quality of the food is poor.

Went to Tuscany Beach the other night with my partner - we ordered the prawns and calamari. Prawns were asbolutely tasteless, mushy and just gross really. Calamari was rubbery and overcooked. Even the rice had absolutely no seasoning and was bland and tasteless. Possibly the worst Seafood meal I have ever eaten in my life....no offence.

If you want a cocktail or some sushi I'd say go there, if you're looking for a good meal - steer clear!

If you're going for amazing food, skip it. But the view was great and the staff were attentive and nice.

Yes, the views are ok, and service is friendly, but prices are far too high for the food that's being served in quantity and quality in comparison to other places around camps bay!
