“SUPERB SUSHI BY THE SEA”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

A very spacious light and airy restaurant situated on two floors all over-looking Robben Island.
Hidden away in Moulle Point but just a short drive from the Waterfront and a lot quieter and more relaxed.
The choice of sushi is excellent and you can make up any combination but be prepared to pay!
Great wine list and not tourist prices.
Service was very good and even on Saturday lunch time!

“Excellent choice when you love Japanese food”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Cape Town offers a great variety of good to great restaurants and Wakame differentiates by its menu, location and athmosphere. It's at the beach near the lighthouse on the rear of Waterfront, the athmosphere is young, dynamic and open-minded. The menu is fusion with quite an emphasis on Japanese food (sushi in an excellent variety). We've enjoyed great fish, excellent beef and -how innovative- tiramisu with ginger and sake. The waiter was attentive, friendly and professional.
We had a great evening at Wakame and can recommend it.

“Sun, cocktails & sushi happiness”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

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!

“Great sushi, great night”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

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.
