Reviewed February 22, 2012

Amazing views of the city and definitely worth the climb, but don't go alone as people are often mugged!

“Stunning views & divine desserts :)”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

The view from Rhodes Memorial is amazing, and wonderful for taking pictures. The memorial itself is beautiful and wildlife can even be spotted in the reserve on the way to/from the memorial.
The restaurant at the top is worth a tea/coffee visit and don't forget to sample a piece of their home-made cakes - you will not regret it.
Just beware not to go up on a windy day as the wind can get pretty strong at the memorial, also give it a miss when Devil's Peak is getting misted over.

“Another one of Cape Town's view points”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

The restuarant at the top is under new management and serve really good food; definitely worth a visit for any tourist. The spectacular views are also irresistable not to take photos of once at the top.
