A lot has been going on with wedding preparations, hens party preparations and goodbyes and on top of all of this my new job has started. All of which have been amazing.
Amidst the wedding preparation there have been a couple of memorable restaurant experiences, as one does when on holiday.
On Thursday night (beautiful warm evening) we headed to the ever-faithful Wakame because, as usual, I was craving sushi and a drink. This is one of my favourites for outstanding sushi, and over-priced, but I’m not a huge fan of the atmosphere. If it it after-work drinks and you are lucky enough to grab a spot on the deck at Wafu (bar upstairs) then it’s great. A view doesn’t get much better than that! However the whole Vida/plastic chair vibe they have going on upstairs is less than luxurious! Given the process start around R85 for six pieces, I feel a bit robbed. Anyhooo, got a bit side tracked there. To cut a long story short, Wakame was fully booked.
So off we headed to Sotano, the sibling to Caveau. I’ve heard great things, so this wasn’t a bad second option. On arrival I was given a complimentary cocktail – a berry/basil combo – quite delicious, and soon moved onto their outstanding Mojito’s. At R40 a beer mug, not glass, it is well worth every cent. One lasted me my entire meal, and I like mojito’s!
Our orders ranged from parma ham and rocket pizza’s, chicken caesar salads, smoked chicken salad and me opting for the prawn bruschetta. All costing around R65 – R85. Food was great, service was amazing and of course you cannot beat the Moullie Point views.
I shall be back.
