“One of the better places at V&A Waterfront”
Review of Ginja

Ginja
Ranked #125 of 1,224 Restaurants in Cape Town Central
Description: Ginja caters to guests of the Victoria & Alfred Hotel as well as other patrons. A stone’s throw from the water’s edge in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, the restaurant exudes a wonderful atmosphere, enhanced by its contemporary interior and superb views of Table Mountain. The menu comprises a wide selection of dishes, inspired by various cuisine styles, to satisfy all palates, a true reflection of the chef’s talent. The spectacular setting encourages guests to savour the moment to the fullest, whether they are enjoying a cup of coffee and cake with colleagues, a meal with family, or a sundowner with friends. Native Espresso Bar, within the restaurant, further offers a sensational coffee fix and on-the-go baguettes for breakfast or lunch.

Came for lunch, the food is good and the seating outside is nice and shaded which we found excellent due to the high temps. Service was fine, nothing extraordinary. Of all the places in Waterfront, Ginja served some of the better food we had in that area. Wine, champagne and sparkling were very reasonably priced. Far cheaper than the other places in the same vicinity.

We only sat down for a quick drink, but ended up staying all evening thanks to the great service from Junior. His attention to detail and fun interaction saw us order dinner and several drinks. The food & drinks were top drawer.
ps. best chips in the World!

I would highly recommended this restaurant. We sat outside next to the water and the atmosphere was lovely. The food was delicious - especially the steak and the burger!
Our waiter Junior was super friendly and nice and made us feel home (also by learning some German words from us) :)

Ginja at Cape Town’s Waterfront has the best buffet breakfast we have ever seen. Outstanding fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, oysters, champagne, juices & hot breakfast made as per a la Carter menu. Excellent value. Stunning view.
