I brought a large group for my graduation dinner to Hello Sailor over the weekend. It's not the most obvious place for a large get-together because the space is rather tiny, but there was nowhere else I'd rather take my family to show them the spirit of Cape Town (including the massively laid back waiters!).
The food is nothing mind-blowing (with the notable exception of their sensational New York cheesecake) but it is always reliably good. They could do with a few more beers on offer (there are no lite options) but generally the atmosphere is so great that the booze flows.
There was a small hitch with the card machine but the manager was gracious and charming throughout.
I recommend this restaurant to couples because it is small and intimate, but can also say that it pulled off a big table very well too. And I also have to say that their prices are outrageously generous and unusual for Cape Town which often gets away with ripping its patrons off. Well done to you guys!
