MAReSOL Restaurant

Authentic Portuguese food with a touch of Mozambican flair MAReSOL, is a sociable yet stylish 200-seater Portuguese restaurant which opened at the Pierhead, V&A Waterfront in November 2016.

Boasting magnificent waterfront harbour and Table Mountain views, ensuring that no matter where you’re seated, you’ll always enjoy your view at MAReSOL.

The Menu
The restaurant is home to a varied combination of Portuguese and Mozambican flavours. There is no shortage of much-loved Portuguese favourites to be enjoyed with a glass of vinho tinto (red wine).

Sharing is encouraged, and guests can choose from a variety of starters to share, or create their own platters for the table. Starters include the likes of peri-peri chicken livers, prawn risolles, calamari and Chouriço, a spicy Portuguese sausage flambéed in brandy. Main course options include old favourites like Peri-Peri Baby Chicken, Trinchado, Espetada and a traditionally Portuguese seafood dish, the Cataplana.

Emphasis is placed on seafood due to MAReSOL’s on-the-water location, especially our shellfish offering of queen, king and tiger giant prawns. Main course pricing range between R69 and R975 for a MAReSOL seafood platter (2 Tiger giants & 2 King prawns, 2 langoustines, calamari tubes, 8 mussels & catch of the day). Desserts feature authentic Portuguese delicacies like pastéis de nata, almond tart and our delightful rice pudding.
