“Nice restaurant for Family Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

We had a family evening meal at 65 on Main towards the end of our 2 week holiday in South Africa. The set menu was excellent value and the food very good. The steak and lamb cutlet mains were great. The restaurant was a bit quiet which didn't bother us but should get busier. The staff were attentive and friendly. Overall a nice place to eat.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

Read a few reviews before booking. We ate as a family and were delighted with the attentive service from Lillian. It was early in the evening and we had the place to ourselves for a short while. I am told it is very busy for breakfast and lunch.
The food was amongst some of the best I have experienced in Cape Town. And certainly better value than many other places on the waterfront.
Fillet steak for the children followed lightly fried Panko prawns. Whilst we enjoyed spicy chicken livers and then kingclip or curry.
Whether you are a group of adults, a couple or a family, the simple stylish decor and delicious food will win you over. A great find and we intend returning.

“This place is ready to take off...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

As a resident in Green Point, the choice of restaurants and eateries is quite diverse; 65 on Main has been around for only a few months, and I have frequented it often, as it is convienient, relaxed and friendly.
However on my last visit there, I was presented with their new 2/3 course set price menu. This is fantastic value at just R110 for 2 courses, and R130 for 3 courses, and includes all my favorite items from their A la Carte menu...!!
It's a similar idea to the ever popular La Boheme in Sea Point, and I'm sure with this menu over the summer this place will be rocking pretty soon..!!!
Get ready to have to book a table at this Green Piont gem...!!

“A Culinary Delight !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

We came across this delightful restaurant by sheer chance. It is run and owned by a very talented young chef, who makes her guests feel very welcome.
The menu covers a wide range of choices all of which being prepared with the freshest of ingredients and flair. The whole dining experience played an enormous part in this holiday being so memorable.
Should you be in the vicinity, we highly recommend a visit.

“A great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Stopped in here a couple of times for breakfast on our stay in Cape Town. Excellent choice and the eggs benedict were fab. Good coffee, freshly squeezed juices. Good service and a lovely atmosphere. Free wi-fi meant a leisurely breakfast catching up on emails listening to great music. A great little place and hope to stop by again on our next visit.
