Have had the possibility to visit tha restaurant twice in January. Both times the food (fish - cape Clipper & Springbok loin resp.) Was very, very good. Together with a wine selected from the rather big wine list made both evenings delightful. Very recomendable.

Had so many recommendations about this place and it certainly lived up to expectations. Been in CPT on this occasion for 2 weeks and attended 5 different steak places, this one was the best. Good atmosphere, great food and Jo (our waiter) was extremely polite.

NV-80 serves great food, and service and presentation was excellent. The NV-80 staff is good and attentive, and will look after you from the beginning. The huge smoking balcony and a great bar make for smooth evening, as you drift in and out between courses....More

I sat at the bar twice: once while I was waiting for a takeaway, and the next time when I was waiting to be seated. I was told that it was possible to eat at the bar if we wanted.
