We are so glad we came across NV80 on Trip Advisor. Despite having already been in the mall to use the supermarket, we hadn't spotted the restaurant. As others have said, ignore the location... As soon as you pass through their doors it's like another world. Lovely vibe and great decor with a view of Lion's Head.

Our waitress was fantastic. Never too intrusive but there when we needed her.

We both had rib eye steak, cooked to perfection (one medium and the other medium rare) with scrumptious side dishes. Accompanied by a nice bottle of Shiraz from along the road in Stellenbosch. We shared a creme brulee for dessert and it was perfect.

Probably the best steak we've ever had and definitely our best dining experiences in Cape Town. We were staying a few blocks away so it was a perfect location for walking back to our hotel.

Highly recommended!

Took me sometime to see the restaurant in the mall but once there I was happy with the service and the food. Fair price for large, fresh And really well cooked. Outdoor area for smoking clients witch don't make you feel like a criminal. Fado music complement the Portuguese ambient.

For a restaurant in a mall, it still exudes style and class, this starts from the friendly welcome at the entrance, being accompanied to your table but is topped off by Maino. I cannot say enough about this stellar waiter suffice to say I have travelled to some 45 countries and Maino still impressed us. His knowledge of both the food and wine menu, knowing when to make himself discreetly available to assist or answer our questions to leaving us alone at just the right moment was exemplary. This made our tête à tête perfect! And not to forget my ribeye was grilled to perfection, the langoustines were beautifully butterflied for my wife and both delicious. Thank you NV-80 and above all MAINO.

We've been in Cape Town for almost a month and just had the best meal ever here. The salmon teriyaki and baby king klip were perfect. We'll come back for sure.

Good steak house with a lovely atmosphere. The food was very good, but not excellent. The meat was cooked to our liking and everything was seasoned well. The restaurant itself is beautiful with low lighting, and intriguing decor. Would go here again.
