Sunday lunch at The Granary Café at The Silo Hotel

We finally got to visit the newly trendy Silo Hotel situated in the Silo District of the V&A Waterfront.


 The Silo has been built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz MOCAA -Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.


The Silo offers a few dining experiences for visitors namely the Willaston Bar for a relaxing drink and some bar snacks or the Silo Rooftop to watch the sunset or just experience the best view of Cape Town, lastly the Granary for a more formal dining experience.

 Granary Café offers, breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We had the Sunday lunch, starters served plated, mains and desserts family style.

Desserts of the day

Our waiter Jabula, was very knowledgeable and friendly, all the staff were attentive and kept coming to check up on us as well as the managers.



Our daughter being Pescatarian, and therefore we decided on having Seafood for mains and we certainly weren’t disappointed. The most succulent Prawns and the Seabass was cooked to perfection. But we meat lovers are definitely going back for the normal menu, as soon as time allows.

Chef Khomotoso presented out dessert, which is served family style and we each got to dish our own portions which I quite liked. Dessert was Bread Butter pudding & Spicy Malva Pudding with a Caramel Anglaise with Vanilla Ice Cream.

If I could give you a word of advice, come hungry, the portions are large and they will happily keep refilling your bowls, should you need more.

After lunch we were escorted up to the Silo Roof Top Bar to experience the 360 panoramic views of the city. Spectacular! We enjoyed a whiskey and some cocktails and simply soaked up the sun and enjoyed the views. Perfect setting to watch the sunset over a glass of bubbly.


All in an all a most enjoyable Sunday afternoon, I couldn’t think of a better way to start off a hectic week aheadJ.
