“Artfully presented food”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Beautiful, delicious food in an exquisitely decorated restaurant. Lots of vegan/vegetarian options and a great wine list. Even the bathrooms were beautiful!

This restaurant is run by the most wellknown person in the tourist industry and she offers very personal services. The food is excellent and selection to die for. Central in Longstreet Maremoto is ideal for a stopover be it for breakfast, lunch or diner. My favorite

“Lovely service, gentle and delicious dessert”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Called in here for a coffee and dessert after dinner elsewhere, on viby Long Street in CPT. Staff were charming, sat at the fireside. Dessert (sticky toffee pudding) was wicked and so obviously home made by the chef ... yummmm. Yes, be sure to swing by here

“Excellent Gem of a Place on Long Street”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

This is a lovely place. Not sure why it is not busier. The food was great - had an early cooked breakfast and the coffee was to die for. So good I had 2 cappuccinos for breakfast. After a long day in wine country we wanted something light and in a place with a fire that was warm and inviting. We both went to Maremoto again and asked them for a cheese board and some wine. No cheese board on their menu but they put together a large platter of different cheeses and meats for us with amazing fresh bread. They could not be more helpful or accommodating. Would definitely go there again.

“Beautiful restaurant, delicious food, service could be speeded up”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed our meal here, the building is really nice and the menu was very tempting. We had a delicious meal, large portions and reasonable price. Good wine list too. Only gripe would be the pace of the service. Staff were nice and friendly and advised us it would be slow but there should be no reason for this and restaurant was not busy. Overall would recommend it, a great little find
