A fantastic place for a large variety of food and drink. This place caters for everybody in your party, no matter the size. I could get a fresh smoothie, whilst my husband had a choice of beers. I brought several varieties of tea to take...home, and unusual pairings of fruit and nutsMore

Something for every taste in our group! Enough seating inside, sheltered from the Cape Town wind, which was lovely. Awesome atmosphere.

This is the ideal place to stop for lunch. Lots of different stalls, selling lots of different foods, drinks etc. We had the local "sandwiches" 1 with mince meat and the other a chicken salad. Both were really good and great value.

Easy spot to find global foods, coffee, a delightful selection of gins, and quick snacks. Great option for picking up little things to bring back to hotel room in the area, or to grab a drink/bite to stay energized for your waterfront area activities.

I enjoyed the diversity of options available to choose from here. Well priced, well located, and there are many healthy things to eat, as well as slightly naughtier treats. Like being able to sit outside, too bad about the noise from construction though.More

I bought a ton of jams and sauces to bring home with me at one of the markets here. The amaze balls at the Korean BBQ restaurant upstairs were as good as their name!

Staff saw us arrive at the counter but didn’t acknowledge us in the near 10minute wait. When we spoke up and raised our frustration with the lack of service, the staff member put up his hand in our face in a condescending manner and told...us ‘be with you now’ in a dismissive and rude tone.More

Excellent overall expereince. We got to taste a variety of delicious fresh food. I enjoyed some beer while having a snack on ciabatta with springbok. I let my wife taste and she was totally overwelmed with the taste. Huge range of local foods and a...good atmosphere aswell.More

If you are tired of normal fast foods or fancy restaurants and want something a bit more fun , rustic, friendly with a great amount of choices, the v and a food market is the place to go. The ambience is very chilled with food...stalls everywhere. From breakfast, lunch, dinner , snacks whatever you want they have. I haven't tried everything but I can say the juice bar, the waffle place are truly amazing. It's a feast for all your senses. I will however say I was disappointed with the Rollo, specifically the chicken Rollo which I found very dry. However all in all, a fun place to go and have some good meals. Just make sure to bring some cash, there is card options available as well.More
