We braved the tourists on Chapman’s Peak Drive as we were excited to try a new option in Nordhoek. Big mistake. Our table was downstairs , which is fine if you have children , as you will soon lose them in the packs of feral kids roaming the place . After 10 minutes of waiting we went to find a waiter to see if anyone would bring us some menus. The waiter finally arrived , clearly way too cool to actually be a waiter, and doing us a massive favour. Drinks and starters ordered . Drinks arrived quickly. Then one of our party went to the toilet and discovered a kid free lounge upstairs ! Perfect. We asked the manager if we could move and it was no problem at all , he would sort everything out. All good we thought. The waitress upstairs ignored us for 20 minutes , then wandered over and actually said she did not understand how we had been so patient ! She said she would bring us some cutlery , which we thought was a good sign , but sadly not . Eventually the waitress noticed our glasses were empty and asked if we wanted another round . By this time we were so desperate booze was the only calories we were going to get. Another 20 minutes later ( and 1 hour after table was actually booked ) and still no sign of any food, we decided to cut our losses and head to Cafe Roux instead for a late bite. The manager did not seem remotely surprised ( perhaps this happens a lot ) and to his credit gave us the drinks for free - no hint of an apology though.
