“What a view!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

It was amazing - from the 19th floor where you can pretty much have whatever you desire - but at a price - not all guests of the hotel can get up here. great tasting menu for short business meetings

“Christmas Lunch at the Westin EC”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We had pre booked for the christmas lunch .The place was quite full. Since we were a group of 7 and with children we had the space in a corner.The view from the table as well as the reataurant was awesome. The children loved it was they had a visit from santa.
The food was nice especially the buffet and the main course.
However it was a touch dissapointing that the deserts esp the creme brulee ran out before the 2:45 pm. As i have been to other Westins's this was not taht"special"
I would have preferred if there was more presence from the assistant chefs to make other desert items . By the time i went for desert there was just 1 item remaining. This is positive critisism as i felt the place great till the last item therefore more attention in the eating patterns during different times of the year is needed

“Amaaaaaaaaizing!!! ”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Had dinner with friends at the Westin Executive Club tonight. Sitting on the 19th floor overlooking Cape Town Waterfront, was out of this world! The food was brilliant. I had the porcinni mushroom risotto, and my friends had the lamb riblets and a beef steak. The attention to detail is what makes you feel special. And you're can't leave without having heavenly dessert!!

“Superb views & staff make this special.”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

The Executive Club Lounge in the Westin hotel is a bit special. It’s located on the top (19th) floor of the hotel and serves a superb breakfast. Really, truly outstanding with an excellent buffet complemented by a menu of wonderful cooked to order hot dishes. Most of these are not your standard hotel breakfast fare and really set the lounge apart. The Mushroom Royal is fantastic! There’s also the second largest collection of fruit juices I’ve seen in a hotel (the largest being 19 floors down in the hotels main restaurant). In the evening the lounge serves complimentary drinks and canapés from 5pm to 7pm and shares its space with the Hotels more up-market restaurant. In all honesty this shared arrangement can sometimes make the space feel slightly uncomfortable depending on who’s in the lounge at the time but there are two huge redeeming features that more than make up for this. The first is the view. There are windows on two sides and sipping a glass of wine while watching the changing colour of Table mountain is a very easy way to spend an hour. Next to that you’ve got Lions Head, also equally impressive and further round a great view of the waterfront area with Robben Island in the distance. It really is a fantastic setting that has to be seen to be believed. The second feature that really makes this lounge special is the staff. They are truly superb. Professional but warm and friendly they have a genuine interest in their guests and this really shows through. I’ve seen them deal with some, frankly, difficult people in the lounge and they still manage to smile. All the staff are good in the lounge but there are 3 or 4 outstanding people who I’ve really enjoyed talking with. I was going to mention them by name but they know who they are and I hope they know how much I’ve appreciated them during my visits. In summary lounge access is the absolutely best reason to upgrade yourself to an executive room at check-in.
