New Years Eve in Cape Town

We will be in Cape Town for New Year's Eve. Where would be a great place for dinner and celebrating? Or, is it best to just wander around the Waterfront?

We went to the Quay Four restaurant. Water views, upper deck. Seafood. See Part IX of my trip report at this link for all details:

All the restaurants in Cape Town genrally have a big splash as do the hotels, they have a gourmet meal and a live band etc etc, try The Showroom they normally have something nice as do Baia but that may be very squished.If you are young and want a really fun party with lots of music and dancing La Med is a good place to be!

What if you are 51, don't drink alcohol and just want a nice meal?

We're looking at Societi Bistro. Loved all the great comments from ca vol's trip report.

One more quick question. I'm afraid I've made a huge blunder. I booked our flights on Jan. 5th going from Cape Town to Durban 8:50am - 10:50am (we're dropping off our daughter there.)

Then my husband and I from Durban to Johannesburgfrom 12:40 - 1:50.

Then from JNB to New York at 7:20pm.

Will this be a nightmare??

Thanks for the advice. We're not familiar with any of the airports so I feel really stupid being so impulsive when I saw a good price on the tickets.

Purrcy,

Have you contacted Societi Bistro to make reservations? Someone said they had a fire or something?!?!

ca vol,

Yes, we did and we have secured them. The restaurant is moving to a new location, but I don't know why.

Thanks for being concerned!

We're looking forward to a fabulous meal!!

Oh no, the pressure sure is on! LOL

Are they moving to somewhere on the waterfront still?
