Cape Town Restaurants with a View

Grand Africa Café and Beach

Cape Town has no shortage of incredible views. With Table Mountain as the city’s backbone, and the open ocean surrounding the city, there’s a spectacular view around almost every corner.

These restaurants offer diners the chance to soak up the views over a great meal.

Dunes Beach Restaurant and Bar

For casual beach-side dining with a view of the pretty Hout Bay beach, book an outside table at Dunes. The food is simple—think fish ‘n chips, pizza, and burgers. They also do a great steak, and there’s live music on the weekends. There’s also a kids’ menu and play area.


Thorfynn’s Restaurant

Thorfynn’s Restaurant combines a wild ocean with an ancient Milkwood forest tangled around the deck. It offers an unbeatable vista in the heart of Noordhoek’s Monkey Valley Nature Resort, with accompanying home-cooked goodness and family friendly ambience. Burgers, pizzas, and delicious vegetarian dishes compliment the landscape— the kiddies menu is also a real draw.


Azure Restaurant

With a veranda set on the slopes of Table Mountain National Park, the rumbling Atlantic in a thousand shades of blue sweeping the horizon for miles around, and sunsets to stir the soul, the fine dining at Azure Restaurant at The Twelve Apostles Hotel is sure to blow you away.

We recommend the exquisite roast duck, or the biltong and peppadew tart served with cucumber ribbon salad. The floor-to-ceiling windows and deck mean you won’t miss a second of the sunset. The restaurant is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as high tea.


Grand Africa Café & Beach

Enjoy your own private beach at the stylish but relaxed Grand Africa Café & Beach at the V&A Waterfront. Umbrellas and tables stretch onto the sparkling white sand as the ocean beckons and the cocktails arrive cold and colourful while your pizza gets nice and crispy in the wood-fired ovens.

You’ll feel like a celebrity, and you might just spot one.


Top of the Ritz

Perched on the 23rd-floor of the newly renovated Ritz Hotel, the Top of The Ritz is the only revolving restaurant in the Western Cape. This Sea Point gem has undergone some serious renovations and has become a must-visit spot on the Atlantic Seaboard.

The restaurant’s views are exceptional, and the food is just as impressive with a seven-course ‘Journey of Flavours through Cape Town’ on offer.

Around the corner from the popular Sea Point promenade is Mouille Point with its iconic red-and-white striped lighthouse (and foghorn when the clouds roll in). Across the road from the lighthouse is Sotano, an unassuming little spot serving up delicious Mediterranean-style dishes while visitors unwind and enjoy the amazing view outside on the deck.


Harbour House

On the Indian ocean side of the mountain, the Harbour House in Kalk Bay is literally on the rocks with waves breaking right against the walls. This stylish eatery is also known for their delicious seafood and Mediterranean and French-inspired meals.

If you’d like to stick closer to town, there’s also a Harbour House at the V&A Waterfront, where you can have cocktails and sushi with a view of the lively harbour.


The Bungalow

Just down the road from the Twelve Apostles, between Clifton and Camps Bay, is the popular Bungalow restaurant. Specialising in fresh seafood, it boasts incredible views over Camps Bay, the Atlantic, and the Twelve Apostles mountain range.



Although it’s named after one of the world’s most expensive type of caviar, Sevruga is not in fact devastatingly expensive. Serene views from the terrace make for gorgeous summer days, and sushi is the speciality. Sevruga already has a reputation in Cape Town, you should experience what everyone’s talking about.


Rhodes Memorial Restaurant

A panoramic view of the city stretching from the Cape Town Harbour to Muizenberg is what you’ll find at Rhodes Memorial and the on-site restaurant. It’s on the slope of Devil’s Peak, so a steep and short hike up will take you to the King’s Block House where you’ll be able to see the other side of the city and the mountain too (if the weather is nice).

Their menu is family friendly and their scones and large cappuccinos are perfect for a Sunday morning.


Bossa Woodbridge Island

With a large deck offering views of Table Mountain in all its majestic glory, as well as Cape Town’s city bowl, Bossa (previously Maestro’s) in Milnerton is a favourite among locals. Their extensive Italian-inspired menu has something for everyone. When the weather gets chilly, their inside seating area features floor-to-ceiling windows so guests can enjoy the magnificent view from inside or outside.
