Description: 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.

Dinner at Sevruga was average to say the least. Portions were on the small side relevant to the prices, and nothing had a WOW about it except the service.
Great service, average food, high prices......won't be in a hurry to go back, sushi at Ocean basket is just as good and priced accordingly.

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

What a stunning experience. We were treated to a friendly reception, professional and knowledgeable waitering staff, attentive management, a variety of dim sum and sushi that was beautifully presented and delicious. Waiter, management and kitchen went out of their way to accommodate special dietary requirements. It was truly a memorable experience that I cannot wait to repeat. Highly recommended.

“Delightful setting and easy charm”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

I met colleagues for dinner on a Sunday evening after a day of sightseeing. I was dressed in shorts and hiking boots while my dinner companions were laden with their purchases from the shops at the V&A. The restaurant staff took it all in stride. They were also most accomodating on food substitutes to meet dietary restrictions. The food was quite good and the prices appropriate for Cape Town dining. A lovely spot to enjoy the transition from day to evening.

“Better than i expected”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

As i did not read the previous poor reviews until after booking i was a bit apprehensive. Initially Sevruga does seem a bit pretentious, but the waiter we had was top notch, taking the time to explain the different types of sushi on ofer without being patronising.
My wife and i are not experts on sushi but we do appreciate good food. What we had was excellent, the courses came quickly after ordering but we where not rushed. A good night out, at very reasonable prices. Recommended.
