I am taken aback by my experience I had this evening at Dalliance. I came in for a quick bite and drink to end off my day at the Waterfront, and got more than I bargained for. Firstly, the view of the ocean was breathtaking...More

Definitely a place I would recommend for anyone visiting V&A Waterfront. Not only is the food spectacular, but the service is top of the range. My waiter, Noni, was patient and polite. She gave a few suggestions of wines that would compliment my meal. Standton,...More

Description
WELCOME TO THE DALLIANCE In the heart of the V&A Waterfront's golden mile is Dalliance, Cape Town's freshest authentic urban eatery. Flanked by the Atlantic Ocean on one side, a bustling kitchen at its heart and shoppers browsing on the other, this spot has it all. Frantic yet sophisticated, absorbing yet chilled out, let the cool chaos engulf you. Oyster shucking, raw juice making, craft beer pouring... there is so much to take in. The decor is chic, simple and considered; industrial meets library, in duck egg blue, copper and wood. Sit back, relax and allow the upbeat jazz to wash over you while the laid-back staff wow you with their gutsy sharing plates, lovely local wine by the glass and stellar cocktails.
