The service was friendly and observant.The food in general was good. The salmon as starter was delicious and well presented .At the mains we missed a fish course.The risotto was perfect and creamy and the chicken tasty, which is a compliment, as we are no chicken fans.The wine we ordered first was run out (but not mentioned on the wine list) but enough others to select. An enjoyable evening.

"Great Evening with Amazing food"

This was a birthday gift to my girlfriend and what a great evening it was. We were seated inside looking at the kitchen which the two of us love! It's amazing to see how the food is being prepared. The dish of the evening was the Pork Belly starter. The food just melts in your mouth and it was so flavorsome. The Steak was cooked perfectly to our specifications and the Chocolate Guiness Pudding was mouthwatering! I wanted more! The service was also great. Attentive but not obtrusive.

"Stunning Restaurant, Average food!"

8.7
food: 7 service: 9 ambience: 10
I give Mondiall tops for Ambiance and service but the food was average for me. The pork belly starter was the only thing that really stood out, it was served Asian style and different to the norm so i really enjoyed that. The main was disappointing, i ordered the steak and chips, my steak wasn't done as i requested, i got a well done instead of medium and the Guinness choc pudding was OK, nothing wow. I would definitely go back to give them a second chance.

"Restaurant Week – Mondiall Kitchen & Bar"

8.3
food: 9 service: 8 ambience: 8
A modern Brasserie in the heart of the V&A Waterfront. The space is really interesting; you could almost call in an industrial work of art. Where the space inspires the gastronomical works of arts one gets to enjoy. Offering for Restaurant Week Lunch: ★R145 for 2 courses (Starter and Main or Main and Dessert) Starter Buffalo Wings Circa 1964, Buffalo, NY, USA smoked chilli baste, ranch dressing, celery salad Or Sesame Prawn Toast Circa 1800 – Guangzhou, China spring onion dipping sauce Main Fish & Chips Circa 1860, Yorkshire, England
ale battered hake, skinny chips, tartar sauce, ‘yorkshire caviar’ Or Cheeseburger & Fries Circa 1885–1904, Disputed 180g wagyu beef patty, 'all the fixins', umami ketchup Dessert Lime Panna Cotta Circa 1244, Piedmont, Italy coconut parfait, seasonal fruit salad, sesame tuille Or Baked Cheesecake Circa 1929, Philadelphia, USA orange cinnamon caramel, almond shortbread --- Dinner: ★R225 for 3 courses (Starter, Main & Dessert) Starter Starter
Game Fish Tataki in Sesame Circa 1900, Tosa Province, Japan chilli, ponzu Or Glazed Pork Belly Pineapple salsa, crackling, cucumber, honey soy Main Grilled Sirloin Café de Paris Circa 1932, Geneva, Switzerland 280g sirloin steak, café de Paris butter, French fries, mushroom ragout Or Poisson du Jour Fish of the Day chef’s choice of seared line caught fish Dessert Maple & Pecan Pie Circa 1930, Burlington, Vermont, USA milk ice cream, bourbon syrup, blueberries Or Chocolate & Guinness Pudding Circa 1759, St. James Gate, Ireland café latte ice cream, caramelized banana, bitter chocolate sauce Arriving at 12:00pm Brunch/Lunch was served. We chose to order from both The Restaurant Week Menu as well as the A la Carte Menu. From the Restaurant Week Menu we tried the following: Starters – Buffalo Wings, smoked Chilli basting, Ranch dressing and Celery sticks. Simply yummy, you just had to get in there and enjoy it, sticky fingers and all. A little spicy, but not overpowering and the Ranch Dressing added another dimension to the sticky wings. Starters – Sesame Prawn Toast with Spring Onion dipping Sauce. A very interesting dish, having never tasted it, I was pleasantly surprise and the dipping sauce was really good as well. The sweet Prawns and the salty dipping sauce was the perfect combination. RESTAURANT WEEK MENU - Mains – Fish & Chips, Beer battered fried hake, tartar sauce, Yorkshire caviar (mushy peas) and hand cut fries. The fish was perfectly cooked and nice and flaky. The beer batter was really good, nicely puffed up batter, crispy, but keeps the fish moist and delicious. The mushy peas were simply divine… RESTAURANT WEEK MENU - Dessert – Vanilla Panna Cotta, with Raspberry coulis and fresh Summer Berries. Light Panna Cotta, slightly tarte coulis, perfectly balanced. From the A la Carte Menu we tried: A LA CARTE MENU - Starters –Seafood Ceviche, lime, sour crème Panna Cotta, crispy Shallot Vinaigrette- Refreshingly good, every bite was another burst of flavour. Dish of the Day. A LA CARTE MENU - Mains – Norwegian Salmon, grilled with greens and Asian Sauce. Being serves the Asian Sauce on the side we loved it so much we simply emptied the sauce onto the Salmon and greens and the dish was a perfect balanced broth. A modern take on Brasserie food, fresh flavours, perfectly prepared dishes and excellent service.

We had a great time at Mondiall last night. All went well the food was great but our main courses took more than an hour. When requesting certain wines on their wine list they were out of stock with 2 different wine brands. The waiter was nice and semi attentive but the kitchen was suffering. Don't know if the order was places late or who messed up just felt it all took a bit long. Otherwise great experience. Thanks

We had a great time! We were welcomed at the door and had a seat at the bar. The basil cocktail is a winner. Then our friendly waiter assisted us to our table. My pork belly starter was to die for! My husband's steak was perfectly cooked. My fish was a little overdone for my liking. Although I did ask for it to be medium. The chocolate pudding was beautifully presented. However the pecan nut pie was overdone and hard. We will definitely be back to try out some of the other mouthwatering dishes on the menu.

"Rocky start to a fantastic evening..."

9.0
food: 9 service: 10 ambience: 8
The evening got off to a rocky start with our reservation not having actually gone through to the restaurant. Despite our confirmation email and sms we arrived at Mondiall to taken aback staff faces and much questioning (we were not the only ones that this had happened too). Fortunately they made a plan, placing us upstairs in their more private tasting area above the main restaurant. Although it was could've been noted that the area was really not a normal dining area (boxes, stationary and various other bits and pieces stacked neatly in the corner) the evening proceeded to get much better. I did unfortunately find a piece of tissue paper in my starter salad, but the food was so good, the atmosphere so great and friendly and my guests were having such a great time that it was of little issue at the time. The remainder of the evening was great. The food was delicious and out waiter, Scott, was absolutely fantastic. I cannot blame Mondaill for the problems around the reservation, but considering the circumstances they dealt with it incredibly well. All waiters and waitresses were friendly, helpful and very professional. The reservation issue did taint the evening for me slightly, but I would not see this as a fault from the restaurants side, and would love to go back there again sometime.

"Mediocre Mondiall"

7.3
food: 7 service: 7 ambience: 8
As this was our first time at Mondiall, we did not know what to expect. With a beautiful setting and great atmosphere, our expectations were quite high. Upon arrival, we were disappointed to find that the menu shown on the Restaurant Week website where we made our booking, differed from the menu at the restaurant especially when we had been looking forward to the Wagyu beef burger (there was no burger on the restaurant menu). We expressed our disappointment to the manager, who was very accommodating and allowed us to have the burger. Service however was very slow, and we only received our starters an hour and a half after arriving. The salad was quite bland, but the tostados were tasty. The pork belly main consisted of 3 tiny pieces with hardly any sides, but was enjoyable. After all the drama surrounding the burger, we found it to be quite dry and disappointing, the fries being the hero, especially as we had to share the fries to make up for the hole left in my belly after the tiny pork belly main. The desserts were nice, but not out of this world. All in all, our Sunday at Mondiall was meodiocre.

It was our first visit to this restaurant The setting is fabulous and the decor very New York style which we like The place was full so very noisy and hectic So I guess that is why the service was slow-waiter very pleasant but kept disappearing I feel the wait time between starter and mains was far too long The food was amazing - beautiful to look at and tasting very good - the pork belly starter was the highlight We will be back again

"Amazing location but not matched by the food & services"

7.3
food: 7 service: 7 ambience: 8
Great location with a view to beat. On arrival communication regards booking was made difficult by loud music The reservations need attention. The service was quick and fast like a French Brasserie, not what we expected. The Pork Belly starter was excellent but let down by tough Sirloin. The waiter serving the wine was more than helpful by letting us sample two wines before ordering. The restaurant style and space makes it unique.

"Stunning venue with beautifully presented food"

7.7
food: 8 service: 7 ambience: 8
Set in a breath-taking setting, parading magnificent views of the harbour and Table Mountain, a stunning venue. Our round wooden table was neat and the furnishings comfortable. The cutlery and crockery were perfectly matched and appropriate for fine dining with a practical utility value. The service was good and not intrusive. A waiter brought a board of freshly baked bread with a crispy crust, a small dish of hummus and a tablet of butter. The wine list was good - adequate but not vast and well selected wines. We ordered a carafe of Vondeling Sauvignon Blanc and the combination blend of Boschendal's Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It would have been nice to have had these wines chilled. Instead we ordered some ice and added the ice to our glasses of wine - something that no good wine lover would do, but it was all we could do to cool it down - and the wine stood up to the adulteration. My first course was Seafood Ceviche. It was beautifully served, a great presentation and a delight to eat, consisting of a multitude of flavours. I identified the calamari, mussels and other raw fish. The dressing was tart and the blending of flavours was good with the added flavour of the sesame seed biscuits on the side. The Boschendal blend added to my enjoyment and was a good pairing with the food. The others had a Caesar Salad which was with fresh ingredients and very tasty. The egg (reminiscent of a scotch egg), was a nice touch. It was nice and soft with a runny yolk. The Waldorff Salad looked good but was over salted. My main course was trout (Paisson du Jour). Again the eye appeal was good. I turned the fish over leaving the skin. It was a bit too dry and would have been better if it were hot. I also would have liked a slice of lemon as I had in my previous dish. I thought to myself that the wine was warm and the fish was cold. It should have been the other way around. The other diners ordered Ramen Noodles, Fish & Chips and a Gourmet Hamburger and Chips. The Ramen Noodles consisted of seared tuna, bok choy and mushrooms in a broth with the noodles. This was served in a nicely shaped deep bowl accompanied by chop sticks. It was very different, good - but not wow. The tuna was lovely but the noodles had a strange flavouring. The old fashioned Fish & Chips was a nice piece of Hake and chips which came in a nice shiny copper pan. It really looked good and was enjoyed. The Gourmet Hamburger was served with a plentiful amount of golden brown chips and looked great. I decided against ordering a dessert and ordered a decaffeinated coffee. I was thrilled to get it, not in the usual cup or mug but a beautiful glass of coffee on a nice plate. The coffee was beyond my expectations. It came to the table hot, good looking and very tasty (a great blend of coffee). This and the wine I ordered was the best part of my meal, although I did enjoy the Seafood Ceviche (but it was a bit small). The others ordered Earl Grey Tea, which came in a nice metal Asian type tea pot, and a Cappuccino, which was also served in a thick beautifully shaped glass - looked and tasted good. Overall the service was good and the restaurant was surprisingly quite empty for a Saturday night. So, here's my rating out of 5 stars - 1. Pushing culinary boundaries; tantalizing taste buds - **** 4 stars 2. Gourmet menus with luxury ingredients - *** 3 stars 3. Appetising, fresh and flavourful food - *** 3 stars 4. Ambiance - *** 3 stars 5. Hospitality - ** 2 stars
