What 20 people say about PIER Restaurant
Fabulous food but the inside space lacks character and atmosphere .
Quite simply, the most outstanding and best restaurant operating in Cape Town today!
Spectacular - cannot fault it.
An incredible food experience!
About PIER Restaurant
Cuisine: Fine Dining
Situated in the beautiful Pierhead Building, guests will be welcomed to PIER Restaurant on the first floor, and The Waterside Restaurant on the ground floor – with each offering a different, but equally exceptional, dining experience. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of the Waterfront shopping district, these two restaurants will offer diners an opportunity to escape to the tranquility of waterside dining – with the iconic views that have made this attraction so famous worldwide.
Unforgettable ocean-side fine dining at PIER Restaurant
On the upper level, diners will find PIER Restaurant, which will bring an intimate, multi-course fine-dining experience to the one of the world’s most-loved destinations. At the helm will be John Norris-Rogers, who left La Colombe to join the launch team at La Petite Colombe, which, under his guidance, was recently named the second best restaurant in Africa at the recent TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice ‘Best of the Best’ Awards.
With Norris-Rogers as Head chef, diners can expect the finest local produce to take center stage, with a special emphasis on inspiration from the ocean – and, the tableside theatrics guests have come to expect from the team. Dishes that diners can look forward to oysters poached table side in local MCC or Thai style tuna with furikake or nitrogen poached citrus fruit to cleanse your palate.
Says Norris-Rogers, “Being given the opportunity to move back to Cape Town and head up PIER Restaurant is incredibly exciting. While the past four years at La Petite Colombe have been a fantastic journey, I can’t wait to help launch PIER as a special experience in the city – one that our guests will hopefully remember for the rest of their lives”.
Aaron Farquhar, current Manager of La Colombe, will be joining the team as Head of Front of House.
