Excellent food at very reasonable price in prime setting on V&A overlooking Table Moutain. We loved it and so did the kids. EPIC burger, great salads and enormous portions. Definitely give it a try if you’re in the area!

Description
Ginja caters to guests of the Victoria & Alfred Hotel as well as other patrons. A stone’s throw from the water’s edge in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, the restaurant exudes a wonderful atmosphere, enhanced by its contemporary interior and superb views of Table Mountain. The menu comprises a wide selection of dishes, inspired by various cuisine styles, to satisfy all palates, a true reflection of the chef’s talent. The spectacular setting encourages guests to savour the moment to the fullest, whether they are enjoying a cup of coffee and cake with colleagues, a meal with family, or a sundowner with friends. Native Espresso Bar, within the restaurant, further offers a sensational coffee fix and on-the-go baguettes for breakfast or lunch.
