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.

    Service was a bit slow between courses.. But can easily be solved with a few more staff at the serving stations

    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.

    Good Morning may it please be possible for all staff to be fully conversant or trained on the Tsogo Reward program as Staff are in the dark, Ilse was very abrupt and uncooperative in this respect
