I would suggest this place more than the Table mountain cable car. Views of the entire city are more clear than higher up.

Stunning sunset view. Get a seat to the left side of the big mat (facing downhill) so that your view of the sunset is uninterrupted. Take a picnic and watch the sun go down or instead drive down to Camps Bay afterwards for a meal.

The only reason I wouldn't give it five stars is that it's a bit busy so doesn't feel quite as romantic and special as a more secluded location.

If you don't wait for hours to get to the top of TM, go to Signal Hill at 12 noon and be present for the historical cannon shooting over the city.
Nice tradition.

Take a picnic basket up - there are cement tables & chairs to have the picnic. Also a big frame with Table Mountain in the background for a photograph. The paragliders jump off Signal Hill and it is quite spectacular to watch them. There is also walks to do and an ice cream van in case you need something cold and sweet. Definitely a view to experience. Parking gets a bit tight at times but a definite when visiting Cape Town.
