Ginja Restaurant & Restaurant Week

A blend of artisanal, and wholesome food. Against the finest backdrop of Table Mountain.

At the end of a very busy week it was wonderful to spend the evening in the company of good friends enjoying good food. The perfect combination is so hard to find and Ginga Restaurant provided the perfect ambiance and most breathtaking view to round off the evening. Situated in the heart of the infamous V&A Waterfront, amidst the hustle and bustle of tourists and Cape Townians, its modest exterior can fool anyone. It is extremely spacious inside and the décor elegant and chic.

We were welcomed by our waiter, Melvin, who very competently handled all curve balls thrown his way. Well done Melvin!

After a serious session of catching up we tucked into our Starters. The chicken livers were tasty but I must admit I had to pass on the bruschetta. I needed to save some space for my Main course.

We managed to sample all Main course dishes on the menu and the men all agreed that the Pork belly ribs were tops, with the Ginga pie coming in at second place and the Hake fillet third. The portion sizes were sufficient but I was left wondering ……  “Where is the garnish?”

I am not really into desserts, but watching everyone else savouring their desserts made me wish I had tried it.

Unfortunately all good things come to an end and so did the evening. I will definitely pay this restaurant another visit in the near future.
