Great server, "Forgive" Great exotic food. Very good choice for dinner. It's not a chain but has the quality your looking for. Excellent wine for pilotage.

The menu is varied. I had the butternut bake which was delicious, filling and great value and the hubby had The Lions Head, which is a lot of meat with delicious sides!! We both really enjoyed our food and wine and the prices vary throughout...More

Good Food, satisfactory Menu and slightly aloof service. I had the lamb and a few of my friends had the chicken. Cocktails took about 30mins to reach us. The view is good and the ambience is great.More

I had the venison skewers and death by chocolate for dessert. Both of them were quite good. There is a nice view of the V&A harbor from the restaurant as well. If you are eating at the V&A this is a decent choice.

I enjoyed our meal very much and as said before prices in SA are cheaper as compared to the US. I assume that most restaurants at the waterfront target tourist, but this did not have a touristy atmosphere.
