Very disappointed in this restaurant. Food was of less than stellar quality and the serving staff not interested in serving at all.

The menu caters for Italian food lovers (a pasta), great burgers and an Indian tiffin which is to die for. The Head Chef's love for food is apparent in the taste of the food.

Whilst wandering about St George´s, decided to pop into Mint at The Taj Cape Town. While the intention was to visit their Twankey Bar, I couldn´t resist asking for their all day menu and the decided to go on and try their Karoo Lamb as main and Ostrich Carpaccio as a starter. I was truly blown away. Tasty and delectable... More

The decor is crisp and clean. The menu has lots of choice. The staff are highly attentive. I ordered the lamb burger and it just didn't work for me; there was an undercurrent of tart sauce that didn't let the lamb through. And the fries weren't crisp. Oh well.

It used to be called Sand Bar and it was great . Changed over few year ago and still a good place to have a drink in the sun or a bite to eat in Camps bay ! Strawberry daiquiri is excellent served in a large jar glass.

A great place for a lunch in the sun or just a place to stop for a coffee or a beer. I had the Club Sandwich which had an Indian slant and was stunning. Lovely place, with great service

The Buffet Breakfast at Mint was awesome especially if you are a sucker for fresh pastries:) The breakfast selection had such a variety that you can take a lot of time just deciding on what to have... so I would advise you to go early to have enough time to sample a little of everything you fancy! They even have... More

Convenient when staying in the hotel, however the food and service is very much average. The Karoo Lamp of 3 large sumptious chops turned out to be 4 skinny ones
