This is a buzzy restaurant but not too noisy. Had a lovely table near the front with view to beach. Good welcome and initial service very prompt, so much so that initially thought that we were going to rushed. But no, we had a lovely evening. Starters of beef carpaccio and Patagonia squid in a spicy sauce. Excellent.
Then we both had Tuna steak and this was the best we have ever had. Perfectly cooked with special dipping sauce.
Finally chocolate fondant and apple crumble all accompanied by. Lovely Delaire Graffiti Shiraz.
Overall a perfect meal and not spoiled by a rather silly customer sitting next to us who eventually knocked over the flower vase spilling water over me. Staff responded well to this.

A really special meal.

We hadn't booked so had to wait 30 mins for a table but enjoyed a cocktail at the bar while waiting. We were then seated near the entrance. I would not recommend tables near the entrance as you'll be put off your food by the smoke from people smoking at the tables on the pavement outside. Not nice when you are trying to enjoy a meal.

It was a bit over priced compared to most Cape Town restaurants but I guess that's the Camps Bay factor.

The food was good but not outstanding. We did enjoy it and would go back but I think there are other restaurants to put higher up the list for Cape Town in general

Thank Derek S

We hadn’t booked and were shown to an inside table that still had great views. Menu was good lots of choice decided on beef carpaccio which we shared then had sole grilled. Both dishes were excellent, very well cooked to our taste, , I like my fish only lightly done. Particularly impressed by the tasty side salad. So good we went a second time calamari was delicious. We received excellent attention and service, I did notice others who were left waiting not sure why

A regular stop-off whilst on a road trip round the Cape. Booking recommended unless dining aoutside regular rush hours and evenings.

Food and service at the usual high standard.

Smoking premitted if sitting at table sutuated on pavement.

Always a pleasant satisfying experience

We went for dinner and we sat at the bar as the table was occupied. Eventually we were shown to our table. We waited about 20 mins before we ordered the drinks.Then it took another 30 mins before we could order our food. The waiter was prompt to take the dishes away after our 1st course , but had to wait long for the main dish to arrive.No sooner have I finished the waiter cleared my plate from the table .
The restaurant was not busy and the staff were anxious to clear up in a hurry.
The food was expensive for what it was.
