“Good for a mall”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant is inside of the V&A Waterfront. Perfect view of the table montain while you eat. Food was good and prices aren't high for the point. Service is not good, but not so bad. It's a good option if you want to eat inside de mall.

“Noisy Bayside Restaurant”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Just outside the V & A on the waterfront. We did not sit outside but had a window table . It was noisy but had a nice atmosphere. The menu was very good and again the waiter did explain certain dishes to us. The wine, as usual in SA, was exceptionally good and much, much cheaper than we pay in London as is the food. My friend decided to try the springbok and I had south african lamb shops. Both dishes were very good
and thoroughly enjoyed.

“Mmmmmm”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Would travel to Cape Town just to eat here! May be in the V&A and one of many chain type places but have never been disappointed by the food here. Carpaccio and steak that can't be beaten and always served by friendly efficient waiters. Looking forward to next October and another meal here

“Delicious food and great service”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Our family of four all ordered different items from the menu and enjoyed everything that we ate. The mixed skewer was a hit with my 20 year old son as it offered a taste of all the African bush animals including crocodile. I had warthog which was good and my husband and son had steaks.
More expensive than other places we ate but we didn't mind as we were right on the V and A waterfront so expected to pay a premium.
