Description: Shimmy Beach Club, Cape Town's hottest lifestyle venue, is perfect for romantic meals with a view, tailor-made conferences, glamorous events and Ibiza-style parties. Boasting an elegant 220-seater restaurant, two meeting rooms, tow gorgeous pools and bars, and a sprawling deck leading onto a private beach, it's the place to be! Top local and international DJ's play on our new poolside stage on weekends throughout summer.

Went to Shimmys twice on our holiday. On both occasions we enjoyed the views and the relaxed atmosphere. Cocktails were good wine was good but on the high side for Cape Town. The various dishes of food we had were also good. Yes service is slow, but you have to get used to it in Africa....order another drink well before you are ready is my advice.

Looks like a posh Bali bar has been transplanted here on the waterfront. Cocktails excellent and a great value. For a date of finding a potential mate its really seems to have it all together.

Cannot Believe that such an amazing place can be so bad! Waited ages for a cocktail when it did come it was watery waiteress the says it's hot what do I expect. Wines are most expensive I have seen here and I won't even talk about my seafood platter. Shocking

Was invited to Shimmy for lunch on a Saturday. The service was good, the waiters friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. The menu was good. Will definitely go again. Can really commend Shimmy.

Having heard mixed reviews about Shimmy Beach Club I still decided to take visiting friends there for an early dinner. Emphasis on the early as there really was NO EXCUSE WHATSOEVER for the shocking service and couldn't care less attitude of the manager let alone his staff ie: they hadn't been busy for hours !! We had to ask for our first drinks order from the aforementioned manager, the food when served was mediocre and unfortunately that combination set the tone for the rest of our evening !! Would I recommend NO would any of us go back NO !!
