Went today with group of 20 friends. Fab place, slightly slow service, but once food arrived it was awesome. Only complaint was heavy chairs, which we struggled to move, and place very loud. A few rugs might help!

On the Rocks Restaurant in Blouberg has the most stunning views of Table Mountain. The decor is very stylish with a relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent but with limited options for vegans. Very popular and you need to book to reserve a table.

A group of us (12) went for a birthday dinner. We had an inside setting because it was a bit chilly but on a nice evening it would be fabulous to be outside. The view is across the bay looking on to Cape Town and the mountain which is fabulous as the sun sets and the lights come on. We... More

It's been some 15 years since I was last here. A serious inside make over and large open windows make this a perfect view point for Robin Island & Cape Town. My son was here for the weekend and managed to get a table without booking ahead. We started with the most delicious oysters I can remember. Meaty and with... More

Had lunch with friends last week. Excellent food, especially the pasta. Very good service from Henry who was extremely attentive. But, oh dear, the outdated decor was a letdown. I have been there 4 years ago and the tablecloths are still sweeping the floor and the mirrors make one feel you are in a 50's film set. Such an amazing... More

A visit here is a must even for the view and a drink. Food was ok. I had prawns. Salads were interesting. Very romantic. There is a dangerous step outside between two eat areas
