We had a fantastically delicious dinner at Ginja for a private event. The service was great; the vibe spot on. A lovely spot - we'll be back!

We came here on a recommendation and while the food was nice the service was not what we had come to expect. The staff weren't very happy or attentive. My husband ordered a drink as his meal arrived. He had finished his meal and asked again about the drink to be informed that it was coming. Five minutes later his... More

Stopped of on the way for a boat trip for a quick Breakfast. The Eggs Benedict was lovely however the Hollandaise was a bit wanting in flavor. The coffee was strong but had all the bits in the bottom... A nice breakfast in a beautiful room.

This place is good to go for a lobster offer, good and great price. Just go for it. The scene is nice if you sit outside as the place is by the harbour of V&A Waterfront. Our food was good and it included a glass of vine and the people who were serving us, Clinton and Dennis know how to... More

Food was average as we had the crayfish special and rump steak. Menu is limited. Felt it was a tourist take away restaurant

Stopped here twice, once for brunch and once for dinner. Their salads are amazing, steak great. Service relaxed but thats the way here. This cafe/bistro/restaurant is attached to a Hotel. High quality food, caters for GF. Children welcome. Outside and inside dining right on the harbour side

Don't be put off by thinking this is just another "burger" place. The food is great. The Crayfish were so good we went back the next night for more. Joshua, our waiter, was a terrific host. The wines recommended were smashing. As this was our first visit to Cape Town, and indeed to South Africa as a whole, it was... More
