Stopped here for a meal today after returning from Robben Island (-great trip!). Decided to have 'Oven Chicken' with CousCous.and a fresh juice. The juice was excellent - in fact it was so good I had two, and probably should have had a third - very fresh, strong taste and healthy. The view of the Waterfront and Table Mountain is... More

We went here on our first night in CT. The hake filet was yummy and the baby kingklip was to die for. Dennis, our waiter, was knowledgeable and very friendly. Nice view of the harbor.

It was hot and we stopped for a cold beer. We sat outside and decided to have our lunch there. We took the kingklip[ fillets and they were delicious. The food was so good that we went back a second time. We recommend it highly.

We stopped there for an afternoon coffee. This was great, so we decided to go back for dinner. The food was nicely done and not that expensive. The view from the tables outside is beautiful, with Table mountain and the waterways. Worth having a meal to just enjoy the views.

We had a delicious lunch here. My partner was surprised to find a number of vegetarian options. The meals were tasty and interesting. if anything too large for lunch.

One of many restaurants to chose from on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Ginja was clean inside and out where we ate. As part of the Victoria and Alfred Hotel you have nice restrooms at your disposal when eating here. Service by Robert was very good and we had a leisurely lunch. Had a lamb and barley salad and a...

This is my favourite restaurant at the V&A Waterfront. I have a shop at the Watershed where I often need to drop stock off and check in on my staff. I always pop in at their espresso bar, Native Coffee Roasters, for a quick coffee (they have almond milk, which is big plus for me, being dairy-intolerant) - and I... More

Location , location , location ! From a perfect view of Table Mountain to the seals in the harbor below your table; don't get any better . Breakfast here is my favorite. Lunch is satisfactory as well. The only negative is the relative slow service. My favorite breakfast item is the egg Benedict with calf liver on the side.
