We were here for our arrival dinner as a group of friends (15). It was fantastic. The staff were super friendly and attentive, the food was great and the ambience in the restaurant with the beautiful views lends itself to the magic of being in...Cape Town. We would absolutely recommend this restaurant and will be back!More

We had a brilliant evening as a family. Every member of staff was superb from the welcome when we arrived to service at table. One of the owners took the time to chat which was so nice. Every table was taken and there was a...great vibe. Each course was phenomenal, and we especially enjoyed the ostrich with salsa verde. I have searched for years to find a cheesecake as good as the one they serve and I'm gutted that I have to travel for 8000 miles just to eat it again (which I hope to do one day). We found Mantra on our last evening in Camps Bay and so wish we'd gone there sooner so that we could have visited several times. Thanks to everyone there for a memorable dining experience, which was the perfect end to our stay.More

Possibly our favourite restaurant on Camps Bay seafront! We went during a power cut for a takeaway and ended up staying for cocktails and a meal. It was so good that we went back the next night for the full evening meal experience! The food...is outstanding and the staff (all of them!) are so friendly and well informed! Highly recommend this establishment.More

Outstanding! Everything from the time I booked (for 16 people) until we left. The owner went out of his way to accommodate our large group, our waiter (Lesley I think) didn’t put a foot wrong and handle our big group with easy and a wicket...sense of humour. All the food was delicious, fresh prawns, steaks and pastas. Will definitely be back!!More

Soooo glad we came here! This was recommended to us while visiting Camps Bay and it did not disappoint! The food and wine pairing was unreal. You must get the sirloin! The restaurant was gorgeous and had amazing views. We had the best waiter, Mignon,...hands down. He gave us some great recommendations and talked to us about the history and culture of South Africa. I could have talked to him for hours! If you’re visiting Camp Bay you have to come here.More

Stopped in for dinner and the sunset. Was not disappointed on either. Huge windows and tiered floor make this a perfect spot for sundowners and dinner. I had the mussels, pork ribs, and malva pudding. All were fantastic. My server, Eddy, had good recommendations and...took great care of me. Definitely recommended!More
