I went for a quick sunday lunch out on the terrace and was so happy I went there. The service is outstanding as one would expect from The Mount Nelson Hotel. The food on offer that day was an extensive buffet with all you could want although i opted rather to go for the terrace pool menu which has lighter options. I had the chicken wrap with pineapple and humus and it did not disappoint

With a view over the quiet hotel pool we enjoyed the best club sandwich either of us had ever had. Great wine and service as well. It really was as the name indicates an oasis in the bustling city. We really enjoyed it after walking through the old parts of the city and company gardens.

For a really nice Sunday buffet in a lovely ambience The Oasis Bistro is ideal. It is truly set in an oasis in the city. The food has definitely improved since I was last there. The choice is not as big as other buffets in town but each dish we tried was very, very good. The pickled ginger to go with the curry was sublime. The papadums too oily. The roast beef superb.
My one gripe was really the service. A little too attentive at times. An empty plate whipped away as one is putting the fork down and the other person is still eating, being asked three times for the name of the booking - I wonder who trains the service staff.
But we were happy with the food and ambience.

We ate at the Mount Nelson on a Sunday when they host their Jazz Brunch. The hotel is a five or ten minute cab ride from the V&A Waterfront depending on the traffic. The hotel is what I would describe as colonial style and the Oasis Bistro is set at the back of the hotel near the pool and the luscious gardens. The brunch is accompanied by a jazz duo, who tastefully jam away in the garden area as you eat.

Our table was on the terrace, which I think was more pleasant than indoors, however it didn’t feel crowded anywhere in the restaurant. The buffet itself looked almost too manicured to eat, although that thought doesn’t last too long when you stand before it. Everything was on offer from salads, seafood/shellfish, roast meats, curries, vegetables, dessert etc. The selection was absolutely extensive and the quality was outstanding. The sparkling wine and rose we chose were also very drinkable. The overall service from entering the hotel to the staff at the Oasis Bistro was highly attentive and professional.

We stayed in Cape Town for nine nights and ate here on our second day. We loved it so much that we tried to reserve a table for the following weekend, however we were too late. If you are thinking of eating here, book early enough to avoid disappointment. I certainly left with the impression that quality was more important than feeding large numbers of guests. As a final note, the meal is exceptionally good value for money.

Breakfast buffet has amazing options from fruit to pastries. Every thing we ate was fabulous and so so delicious. The service was brilliant, friendly, courteous and considerate of every need you could possibly have.
