    Staff serving next table practically had his bad smelling backside next to my wife’s face when serving them. Then he elbowed her in the head next time he came around. No consideration for personal space. Waiter so Unobservant places the menu on top of food droppings without first cleaning it. Such high prices and such poor poor service. I forgot my cap once I reached home and called to ask if they could keep it for me which they did. My question, if I made a reservation surely they had my details to inform me before I called. The decor was superb, setting unbeatable but someone should train staff what it means to actually take into account the experience of customers. Lastly, the next table was sooooo loud I had to ask them to tone it down, your staff have no clue how to deal with any situation it seems. Very sad because once before we had a positive dinner, what happened?

    Verreweg de beste keuze qua eetgelegenheid in Kaapstad! Kwalitatief goed en lekker eten, een uitmuntende service, een glimlach kost hier niets. Er hangt een relaxte sfeer en het uitzicht is prachtig!!! Speciale dank aan Julien!

    Always fabulous and the view from the deck is breathtaking especially sunset over the ocean. The service is very good and the food delicious. An added benefit is their shop selling beautiful décor items.

    Mantra Cafe came highly recommended and I can understand why, the food and service were fantastic, it is in a great location on Camp's Bay, overlooking the beach. We had an excellent meal. my partner would certainly recommend the Ostrich fillet. Hopefully we will be able to visit again soon.

    The Food and presentation thereof was very good, service could be a bit faster. The one annoying experience was the hostess asking if she could put a "reserved board" on our table while we were still enjoying our meal That was very unprofessional and it was done to all the tables around us
