There are some really good restaurants in Cape Town, few have the view of Camissa Brasserie, the premium restaurant in The Table Bay Hotel. There are many other plusses. It is close to the city bowl for a business lunch. There is secure parking, or you can take an Uber down there in a couple of minutes.
Camissa Brasserie offers some excellent choices on its menu. We lunched there recently and had excellent service from a lady who knew the menu, she had been well briefed and understood the dishes. Management hovered which was reassuring, occasionally passing by the table to be sure we were happy. We were.
As my glass I had some of the Hotel’s Craft Beer, especially made for them. For me it was a perfect lunch time beer, wonderfully fruity, crisp and a perfect match with the dishes I had.
We chose to sit outside, which was just perfect on a typical Cape Summer’s Day.
Camissa Brasserie’s West Coast Mussels
My first course was an old favourite, West Coast Mussels. My dish of West Coast Mussels contained foraged spekboom, Camissa white wine & wild garlic cream served with grilled sourdough. Once I had extracted all the mussels from their shells, I had the most perfect bowl, the grilled sourdough was perfect to use as a scoop.
A fine dish of Seafood Risotto
The Seafood Risotto was one of the finest I have eaten. I am a great Risotto fan and use as my benchmark one which was made for me by British Chef Gary Rhodes. This one met the benchmark. Deliciously creamy with seafood, foraged seaweed and flavoured prawn bisque was added as a seasoning. I would walk back there for a repeat.
Camissa’s Crispy Calamari Salad
The crispy Calamari Salad. Num-num & hoisin fried baby calamari served with ginger soya, wild garlic aioli, radish & baby salad. If you are a calamari fan, and I am one, this is for you. So so delicious.
The Table Bay Hotel at night
No meal for me ends without a touch of sweetness and the Cape Citrus dessert with its bruléed orange blossom custard, lemon gel, Cape citrus segments and a yoghurt sorbet was my choice. The delicious citrus tartness balanced the sorbet and lemon gel sweetness.
And the view of Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain is superb!
