We stopped at Sotanos for an early dinner on a Saturday night and really enjoyed both the view and our food. I had the salmon salad off the sushi menu and it was very generous portions of raw salmon slices layered over a base of...More

Sotano is across the road from the seafront in Mouille Point. The food is really great, atmosphere amazing and they have various artists performing live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Sunday morning breakfast with a beautiful view across the ocean. The breakfast was good, but the menu was expensive for what was offered and certainly didn’t represent value. Coffees were served in small coffee mugs and were expensive.

Nice food and great value when using the entertainer app. It is nice to sit have a drink and listen to the live music on a lazy Sunday afternoon

Absolutely overpriced for tiny portions. Friendly waiter. Don't order the seafood linguine- absolutely no flavour, and it's calamari was yuck. The grilled prawns were OK but certainly not worth its high price tag of R295 for 8 prawns, terrible salad consisting of way too much...More
