Been here a few times but I really think this restaurant is struggling with simple quality. Seafood curry, dry, warm and not much flavour. Hake n chips ok but the chips were like hot greasy slimy limp bits of potato. Tuna burger... ummm okish... with...fried cabbage they called seaweed. When there are full staff and only around 8 customers then I really think Nothing should go wrong but today’s was terrible and I just wanted to leave.I won’t go back again and I really don’t think for the cost the food is all that.More

We usually go for a selection of starters as they are so good. This time we chose starters and mains.

One of the best fish meals I have ever had. Nice ambience, friendly staff & GREAT FOOD. Quite expensive but good quality and very generous portion sizes, a real treat and one of our Cape Town highlights. Worth the visit... best to book in advance.

From 12-1pm this restaurant has two for one oyster happy hour and bottomless bubbly for R150 - my dream come true! Great little spot with friendly waitress and view of Table Mountain.

We visited SeaBreeze while we were in Cape Town on the first part of our holiday to South Africa. We picked it initially as I am an Aberdonian and the restaurant owners are also Aberdonian. Unfortunately they were not there when we visited but the...restaurant manager made us very welcome having clearly learned a few Doric phrases. We loved the relaxed ambience and were very impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the service. The food was gorgeous, the recipe for the batter on my hake apparently having come from Aberdeen. My wife and I were most impressed by the whole evening and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of itMore

Dinner tonight at Seabreeze on Bree. Only initial delay was a very fussy customer taking up way too much of the waitrons time. We were much quicker in our ordering and the wine water and oysters all duly arrived - though not together and the...water was warm. All was going well till we had at least an hours wait before the mains arrived. No explanation, no apology, no offer of anything. We had long finished our wine so all in all a pretty bad show. Wouldn’t be significant if EXACTLY the same thing hasn’t happened last year. We brought up the issue with the waitron but all she had to say was that it was busy outside - but in fact it wasn’t really and none of those people had food either. I really like their food but I’m not going back - the place is just not well managed - they know in advance they will be busy but obviously make no effort to either combat this or at least have the courtesy to keep their customers informed. Standard practice to bang out starters and wine ASAP so people don’t walk out. Just not good enoughMore

Firstly a restaurant in this day and age thet does not offer customers wifi (being foregneirs) is not a good thing at all! That said! The ambiance was lovely, very modern and friendly. The service good, friendly waitress. Our food however was not as nice!...We ordered the menus most expensive courses, the prawns (dry and tasteless) and the fish ”Carpenter” which was lovely presented but a extremely boney fish, every mouthfull full of bones. It was dry, so I ordered extra butter - which arrived at the end of our meal. It was quite tasteless and did not impress at all! I said this to our waitress who just pulled a face. As this was out last night in CT we wanted it to be special. And unfortunately we were/are very dissapointed. We will not be back.More

Both my mum and myself visited this lovely restaurant, we both had a superb meal unfortunately it was spoilt by white South afrikaans, mother and son still living in the past, who found fault in anything and everything, choosing to make life difficult for all...the staff who polite and did not react to there demands. Very appalled and saddened by this unfortunate behaviourMore
