Best for Outdoor dining - Expert review of The Grand Café & Beach

Join the city's glossy posse as they soak up the views and the social scene.

You'd be hard pressed to find a more breathtaking view on this side of the peninsula. The owners have converted a huge industrial warehouse into a vintage inspired, chandelier-bedecked space with a beach to match.

Food and drink: 

Café fare and pizzas along with a list of killer cocktails.

Recommended dishes: 

Café classics like Caesar salad, garlicky mussels and steak au poivre feature and the thin-crusted pizzas are excellent too - but they come at a rather hefty price. The wine list has plenty of easy-drinking options, bubbles and, of course, their great cocktails.

Ambience: 

The atmosphere here is all about being on holiday - kick off your shoes, kick back and relax while watching the boats go by. There's a lot of people watching behind dark glasses going on here too. If it's cold, inside is cosy but really this is a summer spot.

Service: 

Service here is on a sliding scale between excellent and scatty - it all depends on the day.

Location: 

Granger Bay 'beach'.

Price advice: 

Main courses are, on average, 120 rand.

Tables to book: 

If you're there for cocktails, head for the chairs, couches and occasional tables on the sand. Lunch or dinner diners, I'd say, would be most comfortable on the terrace overlooking the action.

Other useful branches: 

The Grand Camps Bay - see website below for details.
