We came here last night and did the Cheese Pairing tasting. Guided through by Zelda who really knows her stuff, she found us some fantastic wines and she didn't hold back on filling each glass! Fantastic and would recommend for anyone visiting the area.

Great opportunity to try some excellent wines in be heart of the Waterfront with none of the sales pitch you get on some of the organised wine tours. Friendly & knowledgeable staff. Would have liked to try the charcuterie option as well, but they had...More

I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of the V&A Waterfront. Too many people. Too many souvenir shops pushing stuff I don't want. The Watershed, however, is an oasis of relative calm, and whilst strolling through it my wife and I were...More
