Reviewed March 7, 2012

nothing to see really, just an average experience. Not even aware of it's whereabouts.

“Noon Day”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

You must be here when the Noon day gun goes off, plenty of grass to sit and enjoy the view. What a bang, when the gun does go off. Ears are still ringing. Take your own food

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

We drove up to see the Noon Day Gun and decided to visit the Restaurant for a coffee and pudding in the early afternoon. The best thing that I can say is that the views over Table Bay are amazing. None of the puddings that we requested were available, so we settled for an over-priced cup of coffee each. Not a place that I will visit again – sadly.

“Only if canons are your thing”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

The views from up there is stunning but unless you are into old cannons then I really don't see visiting the noon gun salute to be anything special.
