Cape Town Restaurants



Nobu Review

Exceptional new-style Japanese cuisine with a South American twist has come to Cape Town. Guests dine in a vast hall-like restaurant with ceilings more than three stories high. With no views to speak of, food is always the main event. If budget allows, the Omakase seven-course tasting menu is the way to go for a culinary and visual surprise that takes into account personal dietary restrictions. It's equally delicious to order à la carte. Though dishes like the Alaskan black cod and Australian Wagyu (similar to beer-fed Kobe beef) are costly by local standards, the menu is generally very affordable in comparison with Nobu's sister branches in New York or London. The sake-roasted kingklip (firm local white fish) with Sansho salsa is excellent. There is a stellar selection of sake and, of course, excellent local wines.
