We eat at Primi whenever we are in Cape Town, The service is always excellent and the food delicious. The portions size is very generous and they are very accommodating with children. I had their huge rib eye, other members of my family had the lamb chops, spicy meatballs and spaghetti. All wonderful with a great selection of beer and wine. A consistently good choice of restaurant over the 4 times I've been to Cape Town.

I really love Primi but the recent menu change is just a bit of a bummer, some meals have been removed and the 'no substitution' rule makes choosing a meal really difficult as I only eat chicken and fish. I wouldn't stop going but definitely don't go as often as I used to.

Dear eri_jh21

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant.
We are pleased that you are, on the one hand, happy.
Less so that you are "bummed" as you put it with our new menu.
We urge you to take a closer look. As with any menu update, certain items may be replaced, based on what is popular and what is not. You, our valued diners, very much guide us in this respect, based on what sells and what does not. Beyond that, we must of course, try to innovate, improve and move with the culinary times, which we believe we have certainly achieved with this menu, judging by the very positive response. We have introduced a whole range of new, fresh and delicious options with an emphasis on sharing and small plate dining.

Nevertheless, most of the previous popular options are still represented and improved. In terms of the no substitution feedback, we, within reason, attempt to accommodate special requests and deviations from menu, but obviously not if we are being required to swap chicken for salmon at the same price, which is not to say that was the case with you. Next time you join us please notify management and we will make a special effort to walk you through the options and make sure that you leave happy.

All the best to you.

Daniel Evans
Regional Manager

I have been meeting friends for breakfast at this venue on a regular basis for the past ten years or so. The service is usually excellent and the food is always well-prepared and nicely presented.

The waiters were not professional, no one could own up to their mistake. The "manager " who was on duty that night was very rude he almost got into a physical fight with my husband instead of apologising. We love primi but we will never use VA Waterfront Primi again.
