Called on for coffee as we had a bit of time to kill between meetings. The setting and the views were extremely nice and the waiters were very helpful and not at all pushy. We
Noticed someone had pancakes so we looked at the menu and they were 3 times the price of what we had had at Frankies down the road.
I seriously doubt they were 3 times better, but they did look fresh.
Will have to try a lunch here at some point

A quick mid-afternoon lunch: great location with great views across to Robben Island with appropriate attention from the service Team. The service kitchen is across the road...(weird!?), which probably accounted for the food to be 'cold'! Worth giving another visit...

Don´t you miss the mussels as starter and the Tuna with wasabi as main plate! Perfect! Price is totally fair! Nice atmosphere in the lounge or even on the balcony!

Venue: Ideally located opposite the beach with ample parking, beautiful, modern decor, good lighting and background music.

Service: Attentive, efficient and well paced.

Food: The menu is awesome, not too big but boasts delicious options for everyone. We considered the winter menu and opted for Butter Chicken, sadly it wasn't great, the chicken was dry, sauce lacked body, depth and flavour. The naan bread wasn't fresh and was bland. the Baby marrow in the side veg was bitter.
Dessert: The dessert menu sounded so amazing we couldn't choose what to indulge in but eventually opted for the "Death By Chocolate"- unfortunately the caramel popcorn was stale, even sticky, the tart pastry wasn't crisp, the white chocolate mouse added no value to the overall eat and the "vanilla pod ice-cream" was icy and lacked vanilla flavour. We weren't overwhelmed by chocolate at all which was really disappointing.

Value: Poor/ Expensive considering the overall delivery of each meal/dish.
