No salmon. No basil. No oxtail. Special was offered after we had placed our order. Needs to do better. There are good restaurants out there. Mediocre won't get there. Tempura prawns tasteless. Sirloin steak excellent. Nick B

Either a romantic candle lit dinner by the fireplace(try the Wednesday dinner special) or a great spot to party with awesome dj and custom snack boards. My perfect spot for a half-price sundowner with one lazy eye one the mountain..

Framed by the striking backdrop of Table Mountain, Jackal & Hide on Cape Town's always buzzing Kloof Street marries a Victorian look with a contemporary edge and specialises in long-time local favourites that have been given a little twist. From Wednesday to Sunday, those crazy about cocktails, but not so mad about shelling out for the colourful creations, can get half-price mixes between 4pm and 7pm. FREE 'Thursday Night Live' music evenings. The weekly sets feature up-and-coming South African artists. While there is no cover charge, it's still recommended to book in advance, especially if you're coming for dinner. Friday, Jackal's 'Bassmint' beats session - hosting some of the Mother City's best DJs spin deep house from 6pm onwards (there's no cover charge). Jackal & Hide also boasts a vast veranda with a stunning view of Table Mountain and a fireplace that makes the space ideal for happy hour stints during winter.
