I love the paulaner at the waterfront!
its stupid in a way, but i love it, thumbs up!
you can relax and chill with an exellent german "weissbier" and enjoy the beautifull scenic view of the waterfront and tablebay..
I fell in love when I went to the Waterfront the first time. They have an old red clock tower there. I used to play in the working docks as a child and there was an old guy always by the watch tower who used to tell me stories from all over the world - which is why I ran away at fifteen to see all these places and am now stuck in Engeland :-)
I digress. The Waterfront has some beautiful shops, there are only a small handful of turist tat, most of the stuff is excellent quality. You can spend a whole day there and not see anything and if you are going, you need an 8GB card at least in your camera for that one day.
There are some fantastic restaurants and over the months I will be adding a few not listed here.
The V&A waterfront is one of the best shopping centre locations in the world. The old harbour has been transformed with many outdoor restaurants (fish is recommended) as well as the museum for the Robben Island tour. Seals swim right up to the promenade and you can spend hours shopping and watching traditional African musical and dance performances. Take the kids here and behave like a kid yourself.
We took our two kids to the Two Oceans Aquarium and our eldest loved it while our (at the time) 4 month old drooled happily. It has a lovely restaurant serving delicious food overlooking the water where we had a seal and seagull entertain us.
1988 saw the birth of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront Company, which was permitted to lease 83 hectares of the old Cape Town harbour area. Today it houses the Two Oceans Aquarium , numerous craft markets, an Imax Theatre and immense shopping complex. This makes the V&A Waterfront the ideal place to while away a few hours and one of the premier tourist attractions in South Africa.
Various boat cruises are available, ranging from harbour trips to watch seals, to romantic sunset cruises along the Peninsula on modern yachts or an old-fashioned sailboat. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront offers a range of specialty shops, craftmarkets, an Imax theatre, numerous restaurants and bars, an arena where open air performances are presented and various other entertainment options such as sunset boat cruises. A number of businesses and hotels are also located within its boundaries. There is a Visitors Centre onsite which serves as the starting point for local sightseeing tours.
