Food was very good and cooked to our preference.

The only detractor was the noise level inside which is loud so was difficult to have a normal conversation.

Service was very good.

Last minute decision to eat here. We both ordered rump. Waiting time not bad and steaks cooked to perfection. Reasonable helping of sides and very good service

Without a shadow of a doubt, THE best place we ate in Cape Town! Although we're not usually creatures of habit, we went back two consecutive nights for the same meal, that's how spectacular it was... the t-bone was spectacular (not just a superb piece of meat but cooked to perfection!) and the veggie platter was an inspired mix of flavours. Wine list is pretty good too. But what made the City Grill come alive was the calibre of waiting staff - the first night, we were looked after by Bobby and the second night by Samantha - both these lovely people gave us not only a memorable and warm welcome (and a welcome back!) but also the kind of attention-to-detail professional service that wouldn't be out of place in a restaurant charging much more than this surprisingly affordable gem of a place. Seriously, there are a hundred restaurants in the V&A waterfront to choose from... make sure you try this one!

Nice location on the Waterfront with the option to sit in or outside. On a warm summer evening the choice was easy; outside. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was good, fresh and tasty. A good place to eat have fun with friends and family whilst soaking up the atmosphere of the Waterfront.
