Yizani translates as “Come in...Welcome” in isiXhosa, and is perfectly appropriate in that this restaurant offers a world-class welcome that sets the scene for the experience to follow. Yizani Restaurant on Cape Town’s Waterfront offers guests a taste of contemporary South African and fusion food prepared using the freshest seasonal produce. The menu offers a range of popular South African dishes, with a contemporary twist and includes appetising starters, fresh salads, soups, succulent meat and poultry dishes, fish and seafood and truly decadent desserts. All this, combined with a comprehensive wine list that includes Champagne, kosher and organic wines and dessert wines, the elegance of the venue and attentive service, makes for a truly remarkable dining experience.

    I think on arrival the staff could have welcomed.us and explained how the process works. It was more like we would automatically know where everything is and how it works. But other than that it was a great experience and lovely family lunch celebration

    This was not our first visit to Yizani. We went there for dinner as I was celebrating my Birthday yesterday. Everything was perfect, the buffet was delicious and the service was outstanding. I did not manage to get the name of our waitress which was a pity because she was exceptional in her service delivery skills, and her friendliness. I really want to commend her for a job well done.
