Brilliant steak and creamed spinach! Visited this new restaurant to Seapoint with my husband and even though the steaks are rather pricey it's worth the treat. The ambience was a little lacking and staff felt a bit like they were hovering too much but other than that a great night out.

NV 80 has a fantastic varied menu, steak being one of my favourites Sirloin on the Bone cooked to perfection as was the lobster , one thing that stands after the food and presentation is the service, personal and attentive throughout both our visits whilst staying in sea point well worth a visit !

Visited this establishment for a lunch. Beautiful decor coupled with friendly as well as efficient staff. Had the prawns as a starter and was truly amazed. Cooked to perfection with a light broth with chili, garlic, coriander and capers. Who knew capers went so well with prawns. I just wish they had some crusty bread to dunk into the broth. My main was the ribeye with a butter sauce. Cooked medium rare and very tasty.

Well worth the visit and I will definitely be going back. The staff were extremely attentive without being overbearing.

MY first visit to the restuarant my friend invited us.We went as a large group the place has a nice casaul feel and atmosphere,the managers were very helpful and friendly, on arrival we were told we were being hosted by the best waiter in the house.First of all the food was amazeballs ,not the same can be said about the service,the waiter was banging our plates he didnt seem interested at all he was rather interested in a different table that wasnt us whichwe were told was British Airways which is fair enough for him maybe he gets more than what we could tip him.Our service was mostly done by other staff memembers,one can only imagine if that was the best waiter they have to offer really what does the worst waiter do?what was mind boggling was at the end of the day he had the guts to tell us we under tipped him yet the most part of the night he was never there the other waiters did his job,sir you have energy but at least try to be interestd in your clients even if they wont give you much

An excellent place for great, consistently good food, in a vibrant atmosphere (tough for the other people who commented - welcome to Cape Town - we are visitors but love the vibe!)
Twice in one week and the good food and service was the same - excellent!

A must visit - and a must book!
