There is just so much to do, so much to discover
Long established and proud of a rich heritage, the V&A Waterfront nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain, marches with time, embracing change that brings with it exciting new additions for you to discover. Life on the edge of an historical working harbour in the picturesque city of Cape Town has a charm, and it is with warmth that an invite is extended to you to keep discovering. Indoor shopping and entertainment venues seamlessly merge with outdoor restaurants, ocean vistas and mountain views, and the fresh sea breeze and warm African sun add zest to a cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere.
Taste the international influences from all whose paths inevitably led to this port city. Choose from Asian, Italian, Portuguese, Mexican, Spanish, German, Moroccan, American, French, British and South African cuisine. Make it a fine dining, smart casual, coffee shop, café, pub, steakhouse, health or on- the- go affair. For more dining details, request an Eateries Guide from an Information Centre or visit the V&A Waterfront website.
