The food was amazing, the wine was fantastic, the setting was funky, cool, old school. The manager made a racist comment.....didn't love it.

Nelson´s Eye is a bit of a hidden Champion, the restaurant is not looking fancy (in compairison to the restaurants you will find at the V&A Waterfront), but the steaks are just gorgeous. They also have an open kitchen where you can see the chef prepairing your steak. If you go to Cape Town, you should visit Nelsons Eye.

We walked to this restaurant from our guest house who had booked us a table which is necessary.
Lots of choices and delicious steaks, however our waitress was a little pushy, always recommending the most expensive wines and side dishes.
A good experience and nice atmosphere, however just be careful of pressure from staff.
Quite expensive but great food.

We arrived just after they opened on a Sunday, without booking, and were immediately offered a table.
The service was attentive and friendly and the food was superb, the steaks rank amongst the best we have ever had and, as a bonus, were great value for money.

A really nice touch was that we were staying at the Mount Nelson Hotel and the restaurant owner had a key to the back gates and let us in to the hotel grounds, saving us the walk round to the hotel entrance.
