“Average at best”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

The Canal Walk branch is Halaal, no wine or beer served. We did not know this until after we ordered our food.

Service was slow, food was so so and it just continued in that way.

We should have gone to Ocean Basket. It's a shame really but their loss is Ocean basket's gain.

“May be excellent but the place is now closed”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We've always loved Jimmy's a real institution in Table View but sad to say we went there for lunch today and they have auctioned the furniture and fittings and people were taking them away in bakkies this very second
So farewell Jimmy's

“Prawns with a View”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Located overlooking the beach with a view towards Table Mountain this restaurant is well positioned to impress foreign visitors to this city. They specialized in prawns but also have other seafood dishes even meat dishes and combos. As main dish we choose the mega prawns for two which consisted of about 30 prawns of varous sizes. Unfortunately we had to wait for more than 40 minutes. The quality and taste were good but the rice and the plates were no longer hot. For dessert we had the "Choc Volcano" a sumptious chocolate and ice cream combination. Service was generally slow and would need some polishing.
