Not the best pizza you can get, but being a chain, it was as good as you can get. The service was good, there is a variety of choices and it is a good place for a pizza.

Was there in 2015 on my first trip to Cap town and came back this time. We both of us had a wonderful fish with a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc. The spices on the fish gave a really good taste with the wine. The ambience was great and the sunset with a view of Robben Island just beautiful. Really... More

Decided to give Primi on the V&A Waterfront a chance after a spot of shopping. As I entered the restaurant I noticed the Chef Recommendation for either 6 or 12 Oysters and I knew I got the spot right. After initially having issues with my beverage, having to wait 25 minutes for a local cider, my oysters arrived well presented.... More

This is the third Primi I've been to in South Africa. I can say with confidence that the brand itself stretches far beyond one restaurant. The great vibe, awesome service and amazing food seem to apply at every franchise.

We eat at Primi whenever we are in Cape Town, The service is always excellent and the food delicious. The portions size is very generous and they are very accommodating with children. I had their huge rib eye, other members of my family had the lamb chops, spicy meatballs and spaghetti. All wonderful with a great selection of beer and... More

I really love Primi but the recent menu change is just a bit of a bummer, some meals have been removed and the 'no substitution' rule makes choosing a meal really difficult as I only eat chicken and fish. I wouldn't stop going but definitely don't go as often as I used to.

Dear eri_jh21 Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are pleased that you are, on the one hand, happy. Less so that you are "bummed" as you put it with our new menu. We urge you to take a closer look. As with any menu update, certain items may be replaced, based on what is popular... More

I have been meeting friends for breakfast at this venue on a regular basis for the past ten years or so. The service is usually excellent and the food is always well-prepared and nicely presented.

The waiters were not professional, no one could own up to their mistake. The "manager " who was on duty that night was very rude he almost got into a physical fight with my husband instead of apologising. We love primi but we will never use VA Waterfront Primi again.
