Situated in the heart of One&Only Cape Town, the untameable spirit of Vista ignites an exciting reaction. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame majestic views of Table Mountain and a sculptural centrepiece above the bar symbolises the mythical tale of this natural wonder. Day-to-evening entertainment abounds and live music fills the air. From the kitchen, vibrant dishes showcase the flavours of the region, avant-garde Afternoon Tea is a cause for celebration, and masterfully crafted cocktails tempt the palate.

Kindly note that balloons and table décor are not permitted in any of the public venues at One&One Cape Town.

Private venues are available upon request.

    My Spanish omelette was quite boring and needed more flavour. I found the ladies on duty that day quite slapdash and not very good service, they cleaned the table next to us of teacups and not our table, had to ask for it to be cleared. Had to wait for the card machine and a new one had to be found.

    In all our years visiting South Africa, this was without doubt the worst meal we have ever had. From the soggy tempura battered fish to a Japanese curry that I’ve never seen attempted in Japan (with good reason), an evening best forgotten. In fairness though, the cocktails were not too bad.

    We have been to the One and Only a couple of times over the years when we have been to Cape Town. We have on previous occasions really enjoyed it when it was a Buffett style and were looking forward to returning. I am a vegetarian and didn't realise that the food came served to your table now. They told me the chef didn't have many provisions for a vegetarian and it would appear that he was not even capable of preparing different sandwiches. The food itself looked very fancy but the sandwiches we did have were very dry and bland. My husband enjoyed some of the meat offerings but even then there wasn't a lot of flavour. The scones were very small and my husband asked for more and only one was brought out. The cakes looked beautiful but very synthetic. I would definitely not recommend this experience to anyone when there are so many other places that offer afternoon tea. It is a shame that there are not many positives about this experience!

    Didn’t find any of the items on the high tea menu that nice compared to other restaurants of a similar price. Also bar area became very crowded and waiters don’t often come to check if you are ok, plus had to ask for the items on the high tea to be explained to us

    I’m a regular at Vista Bar & Lounge. Musa & the team usually takes good care of us. Brought a biz guest today and service was terrible and left me highly embarrassed. Asked for out table to be stopped from wobbling - only to be told a hundred excuses why it could not be done - and then it wasn’t done. My guest asked fir no cheese and extra cream - we got standard plate - no respect his request. When it came to get the bill we had to beg 3 times. On top of which when i made the booking for a lunch table - all i got was a dineplan request for R600 payment up front - so presumptious - soulless - glad i chose to ignore it and the place was empty !
