Wonderful food, drinks & service! Decor lovely and that stunning view of Table Mountain! The prices are reasonable and service is stellar! We didn't have the afternoon tea but it looked fabulous! Priceless

Amazing view with excellent service. Welcomes everyone not just guests of hotel. We found it because the Canal Tour docks nearby. Much higher quality than more touristy venues and still prices were not offensive at all. After a delicious and fairly priced burger & club sandwich meal with many glasses of excellent wine on our first visit, we were compelled to return and discovered the mind blowing brunch (extraordinary but a bit more expensive - so arrive hungry). I think this was the best service, environment, and food we experienced in Cape Town. I would stay at this hotel on next visit just because I liked this oasis of a bar so much.

Vista Bar at the One & Only in Cape Town is a great place to have a drink. If you dont stay at the One & Only (I didnt), you can (and should) also visit the bar, no problem at all.

When you enter the hotel, you are almost in the bar, and WWWWWOOOOOWWWWW, the view (vista) is fantastic !!

They serve very nice cocktails and offer margaritas, mojitos, bloody mary etc. the "traditional" way, but also in 2 "special ways". Their afternoon tea is also very good.

The vista bar at the One and Only hotel makes very interesting cocktails. They take classic cocktails, and add tweaks to it, and therefore have 3 variations (past, present, future). All 3 variations are very good.

The barman are very knowledgeable, experienced and well trained.

The Vista lounge also has awesome decor - feels like I'm sitting in my lounge, and its very warm and comfy. Nice couches, huge lampshades, and ambient lighting.

The service is also very good. Slightly pricey, but worth it!

My friends and i had drinks in the exclusive Vista Bar and lounge.Service staff were amazing and entertained us through the wee hours of the night
This was rudely erased by a screaming "Night Manager" who had a heated argument with a bodybuilder in front of us as we waited for our car to be brought up.Staff need training and thats for sure considering the argument as we were told was over a luxury car that was not available.
