Recently I attended a birthday function at this venue.Of course,the setting could not be better. The canapees servered were tasty and varied.The main meal was good,but could have been served hotter. The service was pleasant,the students eager to attend to your requests. Pity about the large rats that ran around outside on the terrace.Could that be better controlled as I... More

Delicious food, kind eager-to-please staff, lovely place to enjoy a bottle of wine and watch the sun set. Based on my forty-minute stroll along Beach Road, this is the only Beach Road waterfront restaurant within reasonable walking distance of the V and A hotel.

Enjoyed a Sunday buffet lunch in celebration of our moms 80th birthday. Everybody agreed the food was divine, service beyond excellent, views absolutely amazing and the ambiance extremely relaxing and laid back. I can't believe that not everybody knows about this venue. We were a group of 26 adults and 5 children and everybody wholeheartedly agreed that the venue was... More

We booked the venue for a celebration with 80 people. We started with snacks and drinks in a gorgeous outdoor setting and enjoyed whale watching and dolphins swimming before our eyes. We moved indoors to a 3 course dinner. Food, service and venue were all excellent. The students are hardworking and willing to please. Their supervisors Janice and Ike were... More

Absolutely lovely dining room with a superb position on the Cape Town waterfront. Hoped for an excellent meal such as the one I enjoyed at the Stellenbosch restaurant school. No such luck. Salad was mediocre, as was the lamb shank that was bordering on being over-stewed. The creme brulee was more like instant pudding with a 5mm thick sugar hockey... More

We could not fault the standard of the food, each course was well presented and tasty. Our large table worked off the set menu with a choice of 3 options per course. I did not hear one dissenting comment from anyone regards their food. The only gripe was in the speed of the service. For a student run establishment, I... More

A week ago I booked a table for 4 people for a dinner that was supposed to be in 2 days from now. I was the first booking for that date in their register. I had wanted the night before but there was a private function booked so we changed to the following day to suit the Hotel School. I... More

I had the honor of having my wedding here as I live in the UK but am originally from South Africa. A family friend used to attend the Hotel School and she gave me the details of the Functions manager Luke. No I must add that, my wedding was divine, which we will get to BUT the communication with Luke... More

hesitated between poor and average rating to be honest. beautiful location, right by the water with magnificent views. the restaurant itself is not really cozy though; we had booked a table for 4; staff called us during the day to ask if we wanted to have dinner outside, said yes but wind started to blow that late afternoon and outside...
