Fodor's Review

If the scattered benches looking out at the harbour activity are full, this open-air space is a good spot to eat your take-way lunch—if there's no performance on. It hosts popular outdoor space mounts performances ranging from concerts by the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra to gigs by jazz and rock bands and even Turkish mistrels. (Check with the Waterfront's Cape Town Tourism office for a schedule of events.) The amphitheater stands on the site where, in 1860, a teenage Prince Alfred inaugurated the construction of a breakwater to protect ships in the harbor from devastating northwesterly winds.
