More community institution than restaurant, Mantra sits above the myriad of tourist traps lining Victoria Rd, Camps Bay. So far, however, it came with a serious downside. Stubborn Ian, the general manager, insisted on opening at 9 even in summer. Now he has relented a bit and agreed to open at 8 over weekends. Next time you come to enjoy the best coffee, views and the most smiley waiters in town please prevail upon him to open at 8 all week. Then Mantra would rate 6 out of 5.

We had dinner in the Mantra in November and have very much enjoyed the great food as well as a very attentive and friedly service. The only "disturbing" fact was a loud group of Girls next to us who had too much fun and made our stay a bit noisy......but we would highly recommend this Restaurant. Great salads and excellent Pizza's.
