“Worthwhile visit and nice variety of food”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

A great stop if you are visiting Cape Town. Craft beer, Belgian waffles and awesome pastries and biltong. The one stall I do want to exalt though is Creamery. They sell ice-cream. the best ice cream I have EVER had in my life so far. Creamy, smooth, full-flavored and just really tasty. I had the peanut butter ice-cream - SO WORTH IT!

“Can't get enough”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

How the Dock Road complex has changed over the years. But this food market seems to be the best use of it. Enough variety to come back often and not repeat your same food choice, although there are some things you have to have every time. The informal relaxed feel can have you pop in for a pancake and end up spending a few hours over a bottle of wine or a couple of beers. Pity they close early i. the evening or I would pick up a take away after work quite often. Really affordable as well.

“Good but Little Touristy”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

I visited in early January 2014 and while being very interesting it is a bit to touristy for me. That said the selection of food in the market is very good indeed. All forms of food can be had from pies to pizza. Shellfish to steak all looks very appetizing and very good value for money.
For travellers with children this is the ideal place to take then on a day at the waterfront.
