The food and wines were excellent. Service very good. Unfortunately it was a cold evening and the dining area was not warm enough. People were dining with their coats on!
As the meal was over 3 hours maybe some ambient music or even a visiting live musician would have made the evening even more enjoyable.
Again the 5 course meal was exceptional and the choice of wines were a great compliment to the food.
Would definitely book again. 🍽🍷🥂👍

Not having provided a review before however wanted to say that we had a great evening at the Cape Kitchen. The food, service and ambience was quite simply outstanding and couldn’t be faulted! Thanks to staff and management at Cape Kitchen for a superb night. The food was delicious and we look forward to returning soon.

Thought water and request for drinks would happen on day 15 minutes of being sat at the table. I snagged a waiter to get a drinks order in and then another for my food order. They were very busy I understand. It’s also hard to het staff in the hospitality industry but all friendly and accommodating.

Had breakfast here but it was standard. It was good but not spectacular.
Big breakfast could have had more for what it costed.
Also it was quite cold, wouldn't mind more heating in winter.

Great spot and very good service. The wait between entree and mains was a little long, but the mains came before I needed to say something and it gave us plenty of time to digest. We were not left waiting for desert.

Received a friendly greeting at at the door and shown through to our table. Unfortunately that’s pretty much where it end. Staff were slow to return to the table to get drink outs. When meals arrived they were pretty much cold and far from the best eggs benny I’ve had. View is spectacular though and venue was clean and well presented.

We ordered Veuve Clicquot champagne and were told that they didn't have any left. This was also the case for the chicken main dish that I wanted to order. We were at the 12.30 sitting so it left me perplexed how the restaurant could run out of these things so early in the day.

I have been here before and loved it, but this time I was not as impressed. I would still recommend Cape Kitchen to a friend but I would advise them to call to make sure that all menu items were available.

Restaurant with an amazing location. The service was first class. The dining cuisine level was first class apart from the struggle with the vegan options. The effort put in to help with this was greatly appreciated. Agreat dining experience.

Great view service and food was great table set out decor great

My only concern was the area felt a bit echoey a bit factory like

Carpet might help with making it more intimate if that’s what you are looking for

But overall fantastic we will be back
