Cape Town was exceptional. Feeling a bit home sick, I was excited to find out that there was a place I could go to to find a piece of home. I was the most excited about having a glass of my favorite wine - Simonsig!...More

What a find! Very interesting fusion food--European/African/Indian...what you would find in South Africa, along with burgers, salads and fish & chips. Nice atmosphere for a date or for family visit. Classy but very reasonable prices. No fried food smell. Excellent, attentive and helpful service. We...More

The food of Cape Town, South Africa, is a fusion of many different cuisines, and at the Cape Town Grill & Bar you'll find the same diverse flavors that when combined, create a cuisine that is wholly unique. Meals are always made from all-natural ingredients, and their outstanding gourmet pies are baked on site and you can always taste the difference. Open daily for lunch and dinner, not to be missed dishes include any of their gourmet savory pies (curry chicken and steak & potato are among the options), peri-peri chicken wings (these are spicy!), lemon & herb lamb sosaties (kebabs) and the South African fish & chips, just to name a few. And, with a great assortment of beers and wines, you can sip on a libation with your meal. You could also head over with the gang and hang out at the bar with cold drink in hand while cheering on your favorite team, or just sit back and enjoy the live music. Before you leave, take a peek at the selection of imported foods and take something home to enjoy later. Great Vibe! Unique Menu! Value Added!
