What 30 people say about The Waterside Restaurant
We thoroughly enjoyed the 7- course tasting menu. There was great attention to detail and lovely service from our waiter. We will definitely be back!
Lovely time and so much food! The bread was incredible.
Food was amazing
Would definitely recommend
Accommodated my allergies
An excellent 7 course luncheon. Each course is delicately balanced on the palate. Service staff were knowledgeable about the dishes and friendly - my glass was never empty and the table was always quickly cleared of dirty tableware. I will return to the restaurant in a heartbeat.
About The Waterside 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 Victoria Wharf, 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.
Says Kirton on these exciting new ventures for The La Colombe Group, “We have been looking at various sites at the Waterfront for many years now - when this site became available we needed little convincing to undertake this project. We hope to create an experience the Waterfront has never seen before - for both locals and international guests alike.”
Casual fine-dining at The Waterside Restaurant
Tempting guests for a spot of ocean-side dining on the ground floor is The Waterside Restaurant – offering a sophisticated, but more casual menu that guests can enjoy both indoors, and on the outdoor deck – perfect for sumptuous summer lunches.
Bringing her expertise to the kitchen is Roxy Mudie, who will be Head Chef, having previously worked as Sous Chef at both La Colombe and Protégé.
Says Kirton on Roxy’s appointment, “Roxy has worked with me for seven years, over which time I’ve watched her grow – and could not be more proud of her as she takes this next step in her career. She is a bubble of talent waiting to explode and I can’t wait to watch her spread her wings in this exciting new space”.
Van Zyl Van der Merwe, long-standing La Colombe alumnus, will join The Waterside team as Front of House Manager.
Taking a peek at The Waterside’s menu, guests can look forward to Cape Malay crayfish salad or Asian pork belly with scallops.
