We ate here on our first time in Cape Town. Good service, we sat in the room which was almost outside but it was nice if a little chilly as doors are opening and closing constantly due to the busy ness of the restaurant. The food was a little slow in coming but the prawn starter and in particular the desert was great.

A very good and worthwhile choice if looking to dine at the v and a

On the night we ate here it was busy but our table overlooked the harbour and service was very engaging. Our fish was well cooked. The langoustine was brilliant. Portions were generous and the wine list gave us a wide choice although a little expensive.

According to locals one of the best fish-food restaurants in town.
I can not confirm as we did not try enough restaurants but this one is really great. Nice view over the harbor if you sit outside. A little big and hectic but they manage to give you the right level of service.
We would go back.

We were given a nice view of Table Mountain outside the restaurant. The waiter who took our orders recommended the best food. The appetizer and main course were sumptuous. It tastes so good that I will come back to this restaurant if I go back to Cape Town. Its a little expensive but its worth it. I just noticed that when you get the tab they automatically write down the tip as 10% of your total bill which for me is not a courteous thing to do.

Don't waste your time or money eating here. Sad to say but its way over priced and over rated. Compared with all the wonderful restaurants we visited in South Africa, this would make last on our list. Best thing about the restaurant is Elzanne. She is wonderful and wasted in the restaurant.
