Sushi with a view
If you enjoy your meal with a dramatic view, look no further than the recently revamped Two Oceans Restaurant at Cape Point, with its staggeringly impressive views. A R3-million refurbishment means that this Cape restaurant is looking more chichi than ever. There's a new sushi and cocktail bar and, of course, a sea view is guaranteed from anywhere in the restaurant.
At the helm of the sleek new 320-seat eatery is chef Phillip Alcock, and he has his work cut out for him. Running the restaurant at Cape Point, 1 of the country’s most-visited tourist attractions, is no easy gig. The food needs to be fast and fabulous, and the service friendly and super-efficient, to satisfy the hundreds of tourists who flock to the south-western tip of Africa.
Phil, a Michelin-star chef who’s worked with the likes of Raymond Blanc, Marco Pierre White and the Roux brothers, has created an unrivalled seafood experience that pays homage to the Cape’s culinary heritage using top quality local seafood.
For those who need just a final touch of decadence, don’t skip the delicious house-made desserts
For a meal to match the drama of Cape Point, tuck into the restaurant’s signature seafood platter – 2 rock lobsters, tiger prawns, fresh-caught line fish, calamari (squid), mussels, and a helping of traditional Cape Malay seafood curry – on the extensive outdoor wooden deck.
The occasion gives you every opportunity to sip on the Cape's finest (the wine list is a select showcase of fine South African wines – also available by the glass). Why not order a bottle of Cape bubbly along with platters of local oysters?
While seafood is the specialty here, meat-lovers and vegetarians are also assured of a great meal, with ostrich burgers, char-grilled sirloin, and a lentil and zucchini ragout to tempt. Kids can munch favourites like mac-and-cheese, pizza, and fresh fish fingers.
For those who need just a final touch of decadence, don’t skip the delicious house-made desserts. And when all is said and done, you can walk off those calories en-route to the lighthouse; or choose to ride the funicular and give your digestion and your feet a rest.
The Two Oceans Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. Bring your camera along.
