We had visitors staying with us and took them to the V & A Waterfront. While there they requested pancakes so we took them to Docks Restaurant.

You would expect that a restaurant close to such a huge tourist attraction would be good, however it was awful. We went there for breakfast just before the robben island tour. The juice was off, milk was dusty and food was terrible. We will definitely not go there again!

This Restaurant is next to the ferry to Robben Island, very casual and relaxed. We came for a late breakfast, and it was perfectly fine. Great location just to relax and enjoy the sunshine!

Don't let the nice location fool you. Docks restaurant is nothing but a tourist trap. The service was terrible, it took 15 min from we arrived until we even got the menus (and the restaurant was only half full). The food was overpriced and tasted like cardboard. The only good thing to say about this place it its location.

Thank todolan
