We ate at the Opal Lounge a few years ago and it was fantastic - from the pre-dinner drinks (no where has come close to the fizzy lemon appetiser) to the atmos - old colonial style house and introducing us to Diemersfontein Pinotage. Blakes' has amazing decor too - I was seated in a large velvet love chair and the table was very comfortable. The food was decent - the waiting staff very attentive. Chocolate brownie and stout ice cream were amazing. I didn't like the grasshopper so much and was a little disappointed. For a while, we were the only table in (until joined by 2 others). That made the place lack atmosphere a little which is a shame because it is really quite nice. However it was a windy Sunday night in Capetown. We woukd go back and the experience would be excellent if someone could remember how to make that citrus cocktail ... Would be fab for a Special occasion
