A good place for lunch at the Waterfront - an extensive menu so bound to be something you'd want to try. The food was enjoyable and the service was good.

I had a wonderful ostrich steak and my lunch companion ordered from their extensive vegetarian and vegan menu (very impressive range of dishes on offer). Lovely staff and a friendly, relaxed service. Nicely spaced tables, good place to chat over lunch.

We had planned on dining on Long Street but it was so busy apparently the 1st of the month is party time for locals so we opted for a taxi down to the V&A. It was a really cold night and it was good to find this place at the entrance to the shopping mall. The restaurant was buzzing. The menu has to be one of the biggest menus I have ever seen, so much choice, not sure how the kitchen copes but it does. We opted for pizzas, a Roma and a Portofino along with a bottle of San Jiovese really good pizzas, crispy bases, flavoursome toppings and excellent value at 665 rand (£35) . Highly recommend this place

What a great place, fantastic steaks, service was good a well, gets busy so make sure you have a booking. You can sit inside or on the waterside. Really great value with strength of the pound against the rand at the moment.
