Classic Member


Founded in 1996, this Cape Town institution has been recently revamped and designed by its original and world renowned architect Stefan Antoni. It’s not easy to improve on a winning formula, but the Italian–style restaurant Balducci has done it with a mod makeover.

The new Balducci restaurant is a fusion of contemporary design, combining a modern African graphic with a monochromatic palette and raw, industrial finishes. Stained oak feature walls and screens divide the space into niche dining areas, transforming the original classic restaurant into a place where both foodies and design aficionados meet.

Comfortable and at the same time, slick, elegant and unassuming, this graceful ‘Grand Dame” of the Waterfront is enjoyed by people from all walks of life. Even so the popular menu has an Italian thread, it caters for everyone and serves an array of choices from great grain fed signature burgers to wet and dry aged beef and a huge selection of freshly caught fish and shellfish.
Attached to Balducci’s is the best kept secret on the Waterfront, the Asian Tapas, Noodle and sushi bar.
