Fodor's Review

The elegant flagship restaurant at the luxurious Table Bay Hotel holds a prime position at the city's waterfront. On balmy evenings diners seated on the terrace have stunning views of working docks against a mountain backdrop. A tower starter of citrus-marinated salmon with blood orange and ruby grapefruit is as exquisite to look at as it is to eat, while duck breast is set on red-onion marmalade with butternut-squash gnocchi and béarnaise sauce, braised red cabbage, and pumpkin chips. Vegetarians will enjoy soups, salads, and pasta dishes. For the wheat averse, there is a flourless Black Forest gateau with Kirsch panna cotta and chocolate ice cream. A kumquat compote cuts the richness. The extensive wine list covers the best of the Cape, supplemented by a selection of New World labels. The Sunday jazz lunch is recommended. The Table Bay hotel offers the best breakfast in town, which is served in the Atlantic restaurant. If you're looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion, then the formal but friendly service will make an event of any meal.
