“Good place to walk around and dine”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We reached hotel just before noon and wanted to step out after refreshing. It was good place to begin with. Hotel provided shuttle and it was not very far from our hotel. Nice place to eat, had variety of choices.

“Great Foodie Atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

The Market on the Wharf housed one of our favorite sites during our Cape Town trip (we went there to eat 3 times). There is a building with two floors of small stands/shops that produce some delicious eats of various cultures, from Argentina to Asia, ice creams and chocolates to flat breads and paella. Our favorites were the flat breads, jerky, samosas and african wraps. And ice cream. And chocolates. It was all great! Grab your food and sit outside to enjoy the oceanfront or take it on a walk past the shops and listen to the local street performers/bands. If you want finer shopping, you can do it here. If you want something more of a souvenir, go to the Greenmarket - you can find many of the same things at a negotiable price.
