The Wafu bar at Wakame has been around for a long time, even surviving a fire a few years ago! I have spent so many days and nights here, sitting in the sun, drinking cocktails and eating sushi.

Situated above the restaurant, the bar offers a more informal atmosphere with panoramic views of the ocean and Robben Island. They server some amazing cocktails and as always the people watching is very fascinating!

We were there over a long weekend and had some incredible sushi and their baby calamari starter (to die for)! It was SO good in fact that I completely forgot to take any photos of it before devouring it … that tells you a lot!

Was recommended this place by a few people and gave it a shot... arrived after sunset so could not enjoy the apparently beautiful views, but had a delicious meal.
The sushi and sashimi was very high quality. It's not white table cloth, excessively fancy sushi dining but it's delicious, prepared beautifully and the staff are great.
We ended up having a 15 minute chat with our server who gave us tips and ideas for our stay. Highly recommended. An all around great dinner spot.

On a recent trip to Cape Town, this Sushi restaurant was recommended to us for a romantic dinner with very good quality sushi..... and we believed the manager at the boutique hotel we were staying at.... what a mistake!

The restaurant was extremely noisy, the service was slow and the quality of the sushi pretty poor........ ( we buy much better quality Sushi from our local Checkers Supermarket on a Saturday in Pretoria).

The restaurant has a raised, wooden floor deck in the middle and if one of the patrons just moves his chair on this deck, it makes a terrible noise - imagine now 40 diners doing this at the same time...

So - don't always accept the first and only recommendation you get from the hotel's manager of consierge....

Been there many times in the last years for some drinks and sundowners. A very stylish bar in Greenpoint with a stunning view to see sea.
See you next year again, like that bar..........

Cape Town stalwart that delivers every time. Location is magical, and only topped by consistently great food, and fantastic variety. A favourite that one just cannot stop coming back to
