Night three of our five night Cape Town stay and we wondered back and from amongst the various V&A restaurants before opting for the City Gill marginally over a nearby highly rated neighbour on the basis that it seemed to offer an excellent variety of no fuss and fancy dishes. While hubby went for mixed grill and creme brulee (both of which he enjoye, especially the mixed grill) it was traditional South African food all the way for me with bobotie and Cape brandy pudding accompanied by protea and hibiscus gin with cucumber tonic. Loved the bobotie andd the fact that you could add the chutney, banana and salsa to it yourself. Pudding was not so great, not bad, just for me not so "wow". I found the portion to be too large with the top possibly "overdone"!
This restaurant is clearly doing something right as from the moment we arrived at 7.30 pm until we left two hours later there was hardly an empty table and a steady flow of customers.
The cost of the meal for us both including drinks came to R708
