This restaurant ticks all the boxes! Exceptional views. Good service. Rachel our waitress gave some excellent recommendations on what wine to have with each meal. I had the best vegetarian (is was actually vegan) meal I have ever had. The kale dish was out of this world! To add to the great views and food, you can also see some great art works. This is definitely a MUST to visit and enjoy a meal.

Made a quick visit to the Cape. Tokara is always a must for us. Best way to end our weekend break. The kids also loved it. Great food. Great service. Best wine. Best view.

We had lunch at Tokara and were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful view but most of all by the amazing food.
I had the best pork belly I have ever eaten and I would like anyone to let me know if they have tasted better elsewhere.

We will be back, with friends, to share this experience!

The views from the restaurant are breathtaking. Pair this with some amazing food and you have an ideal combination.

I order the pork belly with the side of crispy potatoes and it did not disappoint. For dessert had a lovely raspberry and chocolate layer cake.

The service was great and was feast experience overall. However, on the pricey side of the scale.
