We ate here twice in one week it was so good. I can strongly recommend the tasting menu both the vegetarian option (!) and the regular meat one. Well worth the money and it felt very special and nicely thought out...

We went as a group and were treated as royalties. The menu was preset but the choices were excellent. Reservations are required.

Excellent food and service - upscale in every respect. We loved the springbok, steaks and so on. I would book a reservation for dinner, in any event.

Visited Signal restaurant in Cape Grace. All was well until they served us our meal. I sat opposite my friend who was served a live slug - very unpleasant experience. The worst was yet to come, they served same meal to her contemptuously - that was reprehensible. Even though the manager apologised, they went further to bill us for a... More

This is basically the Ritz of Cape Town. Beautiful setting, excellent service. I came here for the tasting menu meal with my fiance and it was just out of this world! The food and wine were impeccable and we had a fabulous evening, romantic, perfectly paced.

We were at Signal Restaurant to celebrate birthday with a group of friends. All went well until one of us found a LIVE & MOVING SLUG nestled in her broccoli. This was not a teeny tiny but an inch long. probably from the kitchen and not the steamed veges themselves. I guess with the warm welcome received we expected a... More

Description
With panoramic views of Signal Hill, Signal Restaurant provides a welcome setting on the water's edge. The menu is a unique combination of flavours incorporating influences from the many cultures that called upon this region in days gone by. The aged yellowwood furniture juxtaposed with crisp white linen, all skillfully positioned in the glow of the eccentric hand-crafted chandeliers sets the atmosphere for a new level of hip hotel dining.
