Going there single, I had to choose 4 tapas among the 8 offered in the full menu. I felt like I would only get a half experience. Then the 2 first ones are served in nice little plates, but on a huge thick wood board, and a pair of chopsticks. The yellow tail sashimi with dried tomatoes and tomato gastric... More

I stumbled on to this place when staying at the Cape Heritage Hotel. In terms of South African meals, this was the most expensive one I had during my stay. I will say however that it was worth it. The food was excellent. The menu changes daily but during my stay I thoroughly enjoyed the tapas with a selection of... More

The food was just excellent, I enjoyed all of it, but don't bring your kids unless they're old enough to appreciate really good food.

Took a chance with Bree Street for lunch with foodies about a month ago and only had a 10 minute wait before being seated inside at the window ledge - the best seat in the house (as long as there are no smokers outside, which sadly there were, but not for long). Being on a budget and just 2 guests,... More

We have been trying to get a booking at this eatery for months, at last we secured a booking. The setting of this restaurant is spectacular and the views are to die for, they just go on forever. The interior is minimalisticly, but exceptional and it works. The staff are amasing, nothing is ever to much for them & always... More

The setting is superb. One of those bright, blue, special Cape Town days and the view from the terrace over the lush lawns and vines and off in the distance is quite breathtaking. We sat on the terrace but unfortunately there was a bit of a breeze and we sat in the shade of the trees behind us and the... More

I found myself here by checking TripAdvisors recommendations for best nearby restaurant. On arrival I was told very politely that there would be a forty minute wait. That was fine, "is there somewhere I can get a drink while I wait?" I asked. I was shown next door to tiny little bar that appeared to be called "no reservations". (... More

We walked in towards the end of the lunch rush and were lucky to get a table next to the window. Food was wonderful, a diverse selection of flavours and great tips from the staff on wine pairing. The atmosphere is just low-key enough. We bought a lot of food/kitchen equipment from the store that is in and around the... More

As we were seated outside in between two other couples on the terrace we were a bit weary about how we would appreciate the rest of the evening. We shouldn't have worried. The selection of proposed (and obligatory) 8 tapas was simply outstanding. Any restaurant where the chef dictates what you will eat will either blow you away or leave... More
