“great sushi- poor service”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

the tapas type food here is ok although a little overpriced for what you get. the sushi however is absolutely great. Service varies from ok to non-existent. Nice location though, great spot for after work drinks and a light bite

“Upscale sports restaurant”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We watched the Ireland v. Australia World Cup Rugby match in September while enjoying raw oysters, seafood bisque, mussels in wine sauce and snails with butter and blue cheese.

Everything was excellent. Great value, great views.

“Lower your expectations”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

The 34 brand is going down and down. It used to be an upmarket premium brand. I can't say that of it anymore. 34 South has disappointed in the past. I've walked out of Dry Dock twice without being served.

34 Tapas is following suit. Which is sad as they have an excellent product. Service at 34 Tapas was OK. I was not very happy with the prawns that were first undercooked and then overcooked. The rest of the food was good. Adequate portion sizes.

I was furthermore unimpressed with the wine by the glass. I ordered Pinotage by the glass. The glass was filled to the rim, and the wine was corked.

At least the view and company made it worthwhile.
