Description: At Seelan, you are treated to a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere that brings a slice of the Mediterranean to the Cape coast. The restaurant is inspired by the languid dining style of the South of France and recreates the joie de vivre (joy of life) of popular French restaurants. Guests can relax in contemporary décor and enjoy sweeping views of the V&A Waterfront. The restaurant exudes a natural air of charm, reflecting the harbour in front of which it is situated. The menu is inspired by the flavours of Europe and features a wide variety of authentic cuisine alongside an outstanding wine menu, including Seelan’s very own house wine, which is made locally.

As a local I've been planning to eat at Seelan for quite some time so with family visiting I took the opportunity & to say I'm pleasantly surprised is indeed an understatement. Seelan is really excellent in every way - with its harbour side setting, pleasant, welcoming & knowledgable staff, a good & well priced menu & comprehensive wine list, this restaurant has "it all"........

Menu is Mediterranean inspired & very tasty; portions are generous; menu is attractively priced & well within local as well as tourists' budgets.

I will definitely be back......

Our family had dinner at Seelan while in Cape Town. We experienced delicious food, good prices and good service.

I had filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly and was much larger than I anticipated for the price. It was served with potatoes, vegetables and a choice of sauce. The meal was just wonderful. With the exchange rate, my meal was only about $12US, which was just amazing.

I would highly recommend Seelan Restaurant and Bar.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is great with open areas while watching the people passes by or if you want more privacy you can sit inside. The food is fresh and delicious and divine deserts. Great place to have lunch and great relax ...
