Multiple varieties of cuisine are available — great service from multiple vendors tried. Can eat in or take away. Prices are very reasonable. A sure winner for all!

Great place to go when you are not sure what to eat. Lots of different stands with food, from Asian to lovely deserts. Very clean, nice and cool.

Traveling with kids you appreciate the informal dining spots that accommodate different tastes in the family ... Excellent place also to try something different for the first time, this is where the kids tasted warthog, ostrich and even worms for the first time at no extortionate prices with a variety of options available.

Awesome place.. this market contains numerous eating places and stands inside. Great tasty biltong and various kinds of slow cooked fast food. Try the Oyster stand.. 12 fresh oysters with two glasses of wine for 260 Rand only.

This is like a massive indoor food market, and everything from coffee to smoothies to the best biltong anywhere. Great place to grab a quick snack or takeaway items for a picnic in the beach. Some limited seating outside but plenty of places in the area to sit and eat your goodies.

In the old days, this warehouse provided electricity to the harbour, today it is a shed providing various food booths. You may taste Samosas, African Pap, Vegetarian, Raw and numerous other foods, at a price considerably lower that other Waterfront stalls.

Great options of food truck! Had breakfast there during several days (the smoothies and juices from Juice stand are AMAZING). Be careful when eating outside - the seagulls are bold and hungry. Given an opportunity they will try eating your food!!!

This place is amazing for food lovers who can just walk around and look at all the differend kinds of food from around the world. But it's also a great place to just have dinner or lunch while exploring the waterfront.
