“Good steak at reasonable price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stayed at the hotel and decided to tried out the restaurant. The meats tasted great, we had the springbok, the beef fillet and the sirloin for our main courses and were not disappointed. Price is reasonable as well, paid less than some of the top rated restaurants in V&A which are offered less in terms of both food and atmosphere.

“Truly an excellent Dinner enjoyed by us all !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Entertained six people for dinner here due to local recommendations. It a smart place with smart service, good prices and fine range of food and wines. My first visit and I may stay here next time in town as it has a real 'buzz' and reminded me of several fine dining venues i like.

Very good steak and very fresh fish was enjoyed and we shall return

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

While staying at the Cape Royale Luxury Hotel in Cape Town we had the opportunity to have a number of meals in the restaurant, ranging from brunch on the terrace to complete meals in the restaurant. In fact, the food was so good we chose to eat in the restaurant most evenings.
Great food, great service.

“Lamb Shank to die for!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

People say that you can judge a restaurant by its consistent food. Well, I can definitely say that it's true at Bistro 1800! This is the second time I have been to the restaurant in the last few months and I was definitely not disappointed. Every meal from my son's chicken nuggets to my starter of brown mushrooms and of course, the lamb shank was excellent! The lamb shank was cooked to perfection. The meat fell of the bone and the accompanying mash and vegetables were cooked perfectly. To add to this, the service was friendly and professional and I felt as if I was the only table in the restaurant. I will definitely be going back soon and tell all about my magnificent experience at Bistro 1800.
