6 great spots for sushi and sundowners

If you’re looking to make the most of your time in the Mother City then we suggest that you follow a simple formula that guarantees that you hit peak relaxation. This formula consists of the 3 S’s: sushi, sunsets and sipping cocktails.

Cape Town is full of picturesque spots, great sushi and a wide variety of sundowner options. Here is our pick of places where you can get a California Roll and a Caipirinha while watching the sun disappear over the horizon.

The Bungalow

The Bungalow is situated right near the water’s edge at Clifton beach and is one of the best places in Cape Town to watch the sun go down. Along with the view of the ocean, the 12 Apostles and Lion’s Head, there are also excellent sushi and cocktail menus. Nigiri and Martini? Sashimi and Sangria? You decide.

Manga @ The Mojo Market

The Mojo Market is an urban food and lifestyle market in the heart of Sea Point. Its unique selling point is that is one of the few markets in Cape Town that is open every day of the week. Manga is one of the Mojo Markets favourite food traders—a sushi bar that draws inspiration from the style of Japanese anime that the world loves.

Grab a sushi platter from Manga, a drink from the Mojo Market bar, and then to the upstairs tables to get a view over Sea Point. A great way to spend any night of the week.

Genki Sushi Bar & Japanese Tapas – Stellenbosch

Situated in a cobbled courtyard in the leafy town of Stellenbosch. Genki provides a uniquely tranquil and informal setting for Japanese tapas. The sushi is great, there’s a great wine list (Stellenbosch is in the Winelands) and the atmosphere is a laidback Asian/European hybrid.
