You simply cannot say that you have experienced The Best of the Mother City if you have not passed through the doors of this Grand old Dame.

This renowned Five star landmark in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront was opened by none other than the late great Madiba himself back in 1998 and is still remains a firm favourite with locals and celebrities alike.

With more than 260 food options on her breakfast menu alone; served from The Atlantic room with its breathtaking view of Table Mountain, it’s not hard to see why The Table Bay Hotel is known as The Best Address in The Cape.

If a breakfast buffet is too much for you, and you’re like me, the decadent daily afternoon high tea from 14h30 – 17h30 offered in the luxurious lounge will more than sate your sweet tooth! Patisserie Chef Bobby creates masterful works of art with sugar. Here you can also find halaal friendly and gluten free options.


But what I’m most excited about is the newest restaurant Camissa Brasserie, it’s not your typical stuffy leather clad European bistro with overpriced Parisian fare.

This hidden little gem serves up lekka local South African flavours that will not break the bank. Affordable luxury at its best!

During the summer months there is currently a sundowners cocktail special at this restaurant from 5 – 7 pm every Friday eve where you can get 2 cocktails for the price of one whilst listening to the soothing sounds of classical pop Duo Accoustic Element!

Why sit in traffic, if you’re a local yokel like me, when you can sip rush hour away in style!

If you’re not a foodie with a fine palate and would rather prefer some pampering, fear not for there is also a Camelot Spa on hand to massage away your stresses. It is open to the public so you don’t need to be a hotel guest to enjoy these treatments, though after a delicious meal and a relaxing back rub you might find yourself checking in!
