Had a lovely meal in the recommended spot in camps bay and definitely didn’t disappoint. Really nice T Bone, wine and the mussels to start were 👌 (T Bone steak about £20 really reasonable - enough to share!)More

Great restaurant, but the third party reservation service they use isn’t great. Dineplan shows they accept AMEX for reservation payments yet apparently they do not and the link is confusing regarding this. The restaurant staff apparently doesn’t know this minor issue with their reservation system...either. Way to difficult to simply make a reservation.More

Why 2 out of 5? … We have eaten in all the best rated restaurants from the VA Waterfront, Camps Bay down the Garden Route to Knynsa & this was by far the worst. The chicken starter was dry, the service was poor, we had...to wait 20 mins for a bottle of wine on a lunch time!! Not a busy time!!! Chased Twice!!! it was by far the most average food we have eaten for the most expensive price. If you are looking for good restaurants in Canps Bay go to Bovine or Codfather 👍More

Beautifully designed restaurant with wall-to-wall books making you feel like you’re in a library (which also dampens the background noise). Really well cooked steak served with seasonal vegetables with extensive wine list. Recommended for visitors to Camps Bay but booking is essential (we turned up...on a Tuesday for a table for two and were turned away).More

We had cocktails at chinchilla upstairs and came down for dinner. They were fully booked and didn't have space for an hour and a half... We decided to hang around and wait as the menu looked really good. The food and the service was brilliant!...Our waiter Norman was extremely kind and helpful. He went above and beyond. The food was genuinely INCREDIBLE! my wife had the chicken tagliatelle pasta, I had the prawn linguine and we decided to share a margarita pizza for good measure. The pasta dishes were really good!! If you book in advance the restaurant charges you R500 so when you get the bill this is already removed deducted from the bill. Please remember this, as when you go to tip be sure to add this back on to the total for your calculations. We totally didn't realise this.More

Zenzero in Camps Bay strikes a note with its stunning views and vibrant atmosphere, perfect for a leisurely Cape Town lunch. Their Mango Daiquiri is a standout, a must-try for cocktail enthusiasts. While the baked Camembert starter didn't hit the mark for me, the main...courses like the chicken pesto pasta and Carbonara were tasty, though the price felt a bit steep, typical of Camps Bay. Service was commendable, accommodating our work needs with patience. Note for remote workers: the street-side location makes it noisy for business calls.
