As a tourist to Cape town, there a certain not-to-be-missed sites. Rhodes Memorial isn't one of them. The memorial is quite impressive and so is the view. The restaurant is worth a visit if you're hungry. Nothing special. Visit RM if you have the time and after you've seen all that Cape Town has to offer. Sometimes sadly defaced by student protests.

I took my kids to visit the memorial on a Sunday afternoon and was very dissapointed. The protesting students have rubbed excrement and graffitti all over the place, they are aggressive and unpleasant and there are way to many drunk people there. No security at all

This is prime location to view the city. Cute cafe on the backside of Rhodes memorial where one can enjoy a beverage or two. We did not go with a guide, but drove ourselves.

This monument was part of our city walking tour and company gardens tour. Our guide told us the history of Rhodes which was very interesting in relation to the history of South African people.
