The third eatery is the Vista Bar, which as it's name suggests has a massive vista of Table Mountain. Reuben’s has a vast wine collection which is three levels high with a mezzanine tasting room.

Nobu Restaurant

Chef Matsuhisa has grown internationally with this being his restaurant in Africa and his third with Mr. Kerzner. Nobu serves classical Japanese cuisine a contemporary twist. Diners can indulge in fresh South African seafood and indigenous spices in mesmerizing dishes such as Sake Roast Whitefish with Jalapeno.

The Chocolate Bento Box with the dark chocolate mousse, green tea ice cream a must. Nobu has a great selection of Sakes, Plum wines & Japanese beer. The Ceviche Bar, which is often attended to by Nobu's Head Chef, dispenses a variety of small-plate Japanese tapas dishes.

Award for the Nobu Restaurant

The experience at Nobu is like no other in Cape Town, their Omakase menu where diners go through a traditional Japanese culinary.Such is the preparation and presentation of the food at Nobu that chef Hideki-san made all 365 starters served at this year’s Eat Out Awards. His innovative Baby spinach salad with dried miso and crayfish offering was a precursor to an evening meal prepared by fellow award winners Luke Dale-Roberts, Michael Broughton and George Jardine. With stars and celebrity are regularly seen at Nobu restaurants around the globe.

Reuben's

This restaurant is owned by local top chef, Reuben Riffel, who has won many awards over the years for his amazing food dishes. 

The cuisine at the restaurant is simple but with wholesome bistro fare and only made with the freshest of flavors. The restaurant has a sophisticated brasserie feel, and the food provides the exciting combination of local flavors that one would expect from South Africa's most loved chefs.

Vista Bar

Situated in the center of the lobby is the great Vista Bar, offers incredible views of the Mountain. 

Guests come together to enjoy à la carte continental breakfast menu, a selection of light snacks throughout the day and spectacular Afternoon High Tea with a choice of 36 brews

  • Breakfast: 6.30am to 10.30pm
  • Daytime snack menu: 12 pm to 6 pm

Isola Restaurant

During the day, guests looking for a more relaxed atmosphere can head to the 54-cover Isola Restaurant at the resort which is adjacent to the beautiful swimming pool. 

A combination of island and classic Italian cuisine, the menu offers wood-fired pizza, seafood, and various local game.

Afternoon Tea

Guests may enjoy life’s luxuries in style at the resort where Afternoon Tea is a lavish affair. The perfect excuse to take time out, the famous Afternoon Tea is a decadent daily event where piles of impossibly delicate pastries, savory bites, and sweet indulgences set the tone. Executive Pastry Chef and team of passionate sugar smiths and bakers start from early each morning to prepare the lavish buffet style Afternoon Tea.

Each afternoon sees an oversized table in the Vista Lounge dressed with a colorful array of macaroons in an astonishing assortment of flavors, just-baked cakes, and savory finger sandwiches and always an assortment of chocolate delights.

Though the Afternoon Tea reflects the hotel’s position as part of a globally renowned and sophisticated brand with universally recognized offerings like their famous New York style baked cheesecake, there is no doubt that this is a South African-infused Afternoon tea experience. Local delicacies such as the syrupy koeksister can be enjoyed while sipping on the hotel’s specially blended Arabica coffee or any of the loose-leaf teas on offer.

This winter, Afternoon Tea guests can further indulge their sweet tooth with a decadent Lindt fondue and most will certainly agree that the hotel's signature lemon Macarons is simply just not enough.

Award for the Nobu Restaurant:

The resort is proud to announce that its famous Nobu Restaurant was recognised for its unique contribution to the country’s culinary landscape at a glittering awards ceremony and gala dinner at the Rotunda at the Bay Hotel, Camps Bay. Awarded a coveted Top 10 Best Restaurant placement in 2011 Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards, chef Hideki Maeda and his brigade of top notch chefs are understandably thrilled at the recognition.

The award came at the end of the fantastic year 2011 for the Cape Town representative of a renowned global culinary brand. Recently included in the prestigious American Express Platinum fine dining awards and programme for 2012, when Nobu first opened their doors in 2009, they entered a competitive market with their unique dining concept.

The restaurant has proven itself with a unique brand of traditional Japanese Kaiseki dining that is married with fusion tradition – the signature cuisine style developed by brand founder Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.

The dining experience at Nobu Cape Town is like no other in the city, including their famed seven-course Omakase menu where diners journey through a variety of traditional Japanese culinary offerings teamed with fusion twists as well as a host of signature dishes that have regulars coming back time and time again. Such is the precise nature of preparation and presentation of the food at Nobu, that chef Hideki-san personally prepared each and every one of the 360-plus starters served at this year’s Eat Out Awards. His innovative Baby spinach salad with dried miso and crayfish offering was a precursor to an evening meal prepared by fellow award winners Luke Dale-Roberts, Michael Broughton and George Jardine.

With Hollywood stars and celebrity, A-listers saw dining at Nobu restaurants around the globe. There’s no doubt that Nobu is one of the most glamorous places to be this summer - now thanks to its outstanding achievements in the dining sphere.
