Being locals, we have been to all the nice restaurants in Cape Town. We thought we would try this one. Arrived at 9pm asking whether they serve sushi. Was told the Sushi chef had left already. We started getting nervous when the table next to...More

I love the Cape Quarters with all the little shops and restaurants. I have had lunch and breakfast at Vanilla on a few occasions and enjoyed it, even though I think they are somewhat overpriced (but what restaurant in Cape Town isn't?). The sushi here...More

We tired this restaurant for the first time on a Saturday night. It's located in the Cape Quarter Extension, a trendy new shopping/eating complex. Outside was busy on a balmy evening. Inside, which is very glitsy wasn't full by any means but was atmospheric and...More
