Great views and a memorial that is of historic importance. Coupled with good views towards the south of Cape town.. The tea shop is a bit expensive but does serve good size portions ( try the scones !!) along with very nice milkshakes and tea/coffee.

The views from this memorial are amazing! The Rhodes Memorial is situated at the bottom of Table Mountains and from this high altitude presents wonderful views of Cape Town. The sheer size of the sculpture work is phenomenal.
