Wonderful High Tea
Reviewed 4 days ago

We took a party of 9 to enjoy High Tea this weekend and we were thrilled with our experience. The staff were well trained, charming and efficient and we thank Margaret in particular for her kindness and efficiency in making special arrangements that made our 83 year Mom/Granny very happy and Vusi too for carrying out Margaret's promises so charmingly and willingly on the day. Our waitress, Moudy, also helped to make our day special - thank you. As for the food - The sweet buffet in particular was outstanding. Each item was a visual work of art with the taste of each being of as high a standard as its appearance. In short compliments to all for jointly producing an experience that we all loved. We'll certainly be back!

High tea: ok, but I expected more.
Reviewed 5 days ago

High tea at The Table Bay Hotel. We went there on a Friday afternoon on the first shift at 2 pm. We started with the savoury course consisting of quiches, arancini and spicy chicken samosas (the last one was very good and fresh, the rest just ok). Then a plate of mini sandwiches; they were just less ok, a bit plain and lacked taste. It also felt like they were made quit some hours ago...
The second course; 2 scones each, one cheese/corn and one buttermilk. They come with butter, clotted cream, lemon curd and really nice jam. The scones were a bit dry/old to my taste and I would have expected them to be served warm(-ish). We were still hungry so we just topped them with the cream and jam to make them more smooth and ate both of them. So at this point we had high hopes that the dessert buffet was going to save our complete high tea experience because we were not impressed yet… And we were not disappointed. The desserts were good. We tasted the fantastic cheesecake (with a great crunchy bottom!), chocolate desserts, a hazelnut/coffee cake, lemon meringue, various chocolates. Only the brownie was too dry and not very fresh. They have other items that I didn’t get to taste because the portions are quit big (and we already shared them). The major cheese board should be mentioned separately; my husband got himself a good plate of that and he thought it was the best thing about the high tea, even better than the cheesecake.
We paid R320 pp for the high tea (excl. tip), compared to other big hotels it’s a fair price for what you get, but because the first two courses were not so great it's too much money then. Next time we might go for the ‘sinful delight’ version, where you pay R200 for the dessert buffet only and skip the first two courses. Then it will be a great high tea I hope. Not sure if we will be back, because there are other high tea venues that do much better.
Staff was very friendly and alert and parking is free in front of the hotel.

Second Visit .... Just As Amazing !!
Reviewed 6 days ago

This was our second visit at this hotel in about 6 months and it was just as amazing. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and the little personal gestures left in our room as well as a bottle of my favorite bubbles was truly appreciated. Pity we never got to enjoy the view of the mountain due to the weather BUT it did not dampen out stay at all. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely stay at this hotel again. That's for sure!

Perfect location for down town Cape Town
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed in this hotel for five nights at the end of a safari and garden route tour. The hotel is wonderful with a high end shopping mall attached to it. There are numerous places to eat at great prices along the harbour. The aquarium is a short walk away as is the Robben island gateway for visiting Robben island where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were detained. If it's clear you can see the famous table mountain and there are numerous sightseeing tours departing from the harbour. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

I stayed here almost a year ago but forgot to review it then. My experience was FANTASTIC and I have to share it. We were 6 people and everyone had a great time. The rooms are comfortable and the view is breathtaking.

Food - We didn't have any meals other than breakfast which was great. There was a wide variety, they even had Indian paranthas and idli sambhar.

We loved our stay and recommend this hotel highly.
