I love meeting friends here. The views are just spectacular. There is a restaurant/coffee shop which is great for lunch or an afternoon snack.

It is a beautiful construction with an amazing view of Cape Town, unfortunately the place was dirty and poorly maintained, even Rhodes statue was depredated (there was no nose).
