Real-time

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.

    Amazing food & service. We are firm fans of Yizani because of this! Ambience was due to Covid and the lack of people & vibe but the staff still went out of their way to make us feel welcome & comfy throughout the meal. Thank you so much for this. The Chef outdid himself! It's the first time the food beat this big eating family. Wow! What a meal. See ya next time ❤️❤️❤️

    Good Day, It is always a great dining experience at Yizani. The only area that needs looking at are the long queues when mains are served - I think another service station for mains would solve the problem as well as two more dishing ladies for the sides. Everything else was great - including the waiter who served our table with drinks (Sinethemba) and of course the awesome Elize Kruger :-) Thank you Yizani - I will definitely be back again soon.
