We visited this restaurant for dinner and especially to have some seafood. View is great as it's on the beach road and close to V&A Waterfront. We all had seafood, from baby kingklip to sea-bass, and all four of us were impressed, with the quality and taste of our food. Highly recommended but expensive though. Worth it!

Food and staff were excellent having tried the Seafood platter as well as their Lamb chops. Surprising part of this establishment was their prices ranging from R125 for main... More

There were four of us, and we all had different meals. All of them were exceptional. Great service, very nice atmosphere (not many people inside) - we'll definitely come back if we are around.

Just wanted to leave a note to say thank you for the excellent service and the superb quality of food. Enjoyed excellent wine, steak, oysters and sushi. Will definitely return when next in town. This is my favourite restaurant in Cape Town.

Ive been here and reviewed it before, but my last lunch here was once again so good I just feel compelled to recommend it again. Take a hot February afternoon, add a Haute Cabriere Chardonnay Pinot Noir, add the Sushi special, add the Pepenero Salad with avocado, and you have a Cape Town experience to remember.

Lovely restaurant. Good ambience. Waiters polite and knowledgeable especially Johanne. Food was magnificent. I highly recommend this restaurant any time. They cater for all ages. While there try Norwegian salmon with green beans and almonds. Mouth watering dish.
