Description: Mondiall is situated on the water of Cape Town's beautifull Waterfront with the best view of Table Mountain of any restaurant in the city. Open all day with Breakfast, Brunch (at weekends with Live Sunday music), and afternoon cocktails and evening Dinner, Mondiall is without doubt one of Cape Towns best dining experiences. Friendly staff, excellent service and mouth watering food make this place a must visit location for long afternoon lunches and a whole lot more!

There are no bad restaurants in Cape town, but our experience of Mondiall was not excellent. Good food, but slow service and not very priceworthy.

We booked , at a handsome charge, for a set menu on Valentines night. The food and service were both very disappointing and this was our fourth visit. What went wrong in the kitchen and with management that night? I really hope they are not going down hill after starting off so well.

When you order a steak at a so-called upmarket restaurant one would expect the chef to know the difference between rare, medium rare etc. We ordered a rare and medium rare steak and received something closer to a well done piece of meat. Difficult to cut it was so tough and overcooked. They offered to re-do them as it was not what we ordered. Second time around it was slightly better, sort of medium. Still couldn't get it right.
Ambiance was good, service was good, wine was good, but with the competition in the V & A Waterfront, I would not be back.
If you charge in the upper scale, please get the food to match the prices.

On a friends recommendation we went along to Mondiall and were not disappointed. Great food, very tasty and quite plentiful. An excellent price (particularly with the pound sterling so strong at the moment). Friendly service, though a little slow, but made up for by smiles, willingness and generally good humour. The backdrop view of Table Mountain is terrific. I would warmly recommend this place to any of my friends.

We actually found this place by chance while looking for a spot for drinks on a very hot day in Cape Town. But we were so glad we did we ended up having lunch and dinner there!

I can highly recommend their fish tacos - absolutely yummy!

Staff are very attentive, friendly and easy going.

Will definitely return the next time we are in Cape Town!
