Elegant dining room offering top-end service and cuisine at reasonable prices. Our first experience of eating ostrich did not disappoint. Several dishes show Cape Malay influence with light spicing, which we like.

We personally really liked the restaurant. Upscale feel, great service, plenty of food and beverage choices. All 3 of us enjoyed our food, drinks, and dessert choices. They handled allergies well. Maybe pricey for the area, definitely cheaper (or actually better value) than NYC though.

With panoramic views of Signal Hill, Signal Restaurant provides a welcome setting on the water's edge. The menu is a unique combination of flavours incorporating influences from the many cultures that called upon this region in days gone by. The aged yellowwood furniture juxtaposed with crisp white linen, all skillfully positioned in the glow of the eccentric hand-crafted chandeliers sets the atmosphere for a new level of hip hotel dining.
