Owners description

Shimmy Beach Club aims to be Cape Town’s premier ocean-front dining and lifestyle destination. Influenced by some of the world’s most glamorous entertainment venues, Shimmy has a spectacular location at the Waterfront, a private beach and outside deck. The Shimmy Beach Club features a container ship-inspired bar, illuminated champagne bar, infinity swimming pool, lounge and main restaurant under the hand of chef Adrian Cook.

Shimmy Beach Club, South Africa's premier venue and restaurant's winter menu focuses on comfort food with strong Italian and Mediterranean influence. Expect traditional flavours presented in an unconventional way.

Humble ingredients are turned into fantastic dishes that are warm and inviting for cosy winter evenings. Top quality local ingredients are sourced for fragrant meals like Lamb Shank pot pie with Candied Butternut; or the Oxtail Tortellini with Pumpkin Puree and Sage BeurreNoisette. There are several surprises on the dessert list such as Guava Cheesecake, with Macadamia crust, Peanut Butter ice-cream and strawberries in lime-stock; or the Honey Pistachio Panna Cotta with figs. Those following a Banting diet, can look forward to a sushi or pizza option.

Shimmy can cater for glitzy corporate events up to 1200 people, bachelorette/bachelors parties or a family get-together on the pool deck near the private beach. It's the best place to enjoy cocktails with an ocean view while the sun sets.

  • I would be lying if I say I will not visit Shimmy again... They have amazing views and a really chilled, and relaxed ambiance. It is really a beautifully decorated space and gives one a sense of calm... If there is anything that this establishment can get an A+ on is its location and décor. There service is okay nothing to write home about and I have been here more than 4 times and I never really got a stellar service (50%). On Saturday the 26th of August, I however got the best service from the hostess, it is unfortunate that I did not get her name but she really was top class...such attention to detail. We had a seafood platter, the portion was okay and the taste was good, nothing wow for R850. We created a meaty platter with rump, lamb and chicken - the rump, even though we requested it to be medium done it was overcooked, literally like chewing gum.. the lamp was okay and the chicken was good. I honestly think the mains on the menu are not winning. I have had you pizza and I love the thin base, it is tasty and awesome. I also think your sushi is relatively good. I will be doing more drinks at this place and their Bloemendal wines are good.
