Shop 8C, Quay 5, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town.

The next time you visit the V&A Waterfront and are undecided on where to dine, I urge you to pop into the stylish spot that is Seelan Restaurant & Bar. Boasting beautiful harbour views while offering up a fantastic Mediterranean-styled menu, you can bet that it’s all sorts of fabulous! 

I recently popped into this trendy spot for lunch with a girlfriend of mine on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The place was chock-a-block full, but after a short wait we were lucky enough to secure a lovely table in the airy outdoor section thanks to our attentive, enthusiastic waiter. 

To start off, we thought we’d treat ourselves and order up a bottle of bubbles. Because there’s nothing better than sipping champagne on a perfect summer’s day in Cape Town, right? The atmosphere was vibrant and cheerful, which was really enjoyable, so we thought we’d get in on the vibe by ordering up some tapas to start off. 

Between the two of us, we decided on the fresh west coast oysters, east coast shrimp and grilled baby calamari. All three dishes were perfectly prepared and super-tasty. I especially loved the oysters, which were the perfect accompaniment to our bottle of bubbles!

For mains, I then opted for the grilled salmon served in chilli, ginger, and a ginger-soya sauce. My friend, on the other hand, chose the wild mushroom and truffle pasta. Both dishes were fantastic – my salmon was perfectly cooked and really flavourful. My friend’s pasta, which I was lucky enough to grab a mouthful of, was just as excellent. The cream sauce that it was done in was sublime! 

Sadly, we were left feeling rather stuffed after all that food so had no room left for one of the restaurant’s dreamy desserts, but I plan on returning soon to try out the dessert trolley, which is a variety of their best cakes and sweets. I saw the people at the table next to us tucking into one and it looked just heavenly!

Seelan Restaurant & Bar is a fabulous spot, and ticks all the boxes – great food, quick service, and a fun atmosphere. I urge you to go and try it out for yourselves, whether it be for a quick after-work drink, a lengthy sundowner session, or a boozy lunch. Cheers!
