Restaurant Week Autumn 2017 – Vista Marina

IMG_0455

Mediterranean Sophistication is the best way to describe the clean, crisp white starkness of the interior, but the clever lighting and opulent finishing’s make its one of the up and coming places to be in Cape Town.

With views of Table Mountain and the Marina, you could easily just laze on the couches while enjoying a drink with friends or have a romantic cuddle under the moonlight. The space lends it to either or.

Being our second visit to Vista Marina, the first one was with Come Wine With Us, we were excited to try some dishes from their menu.

Our waiter for the evening was Lindeswe and he was warm and friendly. Even though the dinner menus were at the table there was some confusion about the Restaurant Week special, as it was their first time doing Restaurant Week. It was no big deal, Menu sorted, we proceeded with dinner.

We certainly weren’t disappointed, the portion sizes were huge. Serious value for money and they have a nice variety of dishes available to please everyone.
