I had a sirloin steak with mashed potatoes for R110. It was rich and delicious but only took 6 minutes to prepare. Because of the food hall nature go off of main meal times to avoid horrendous crowds during the week.

From local food makers to local favorites and local beer to the traditional beer and wings, this is the place to be. Located in the V&A waterfront center this is definitely the place to stop and grab something to eat and enjoy the local flavor..

An eclectic grouping of food kiosks offering a pantheon of unique dishes. From the moment you enter and smell the mixed aromas you are enticed to wander through the stalls and try items.
