Food
This fine dining hotel restaurant offers a diverse menu with multiple themed tasting menu options, including menus especially designed for vegans and vegetarians. The extensive a la carte menu combines fine dining classics with a distinct local South African flavour. Smoked snoek is reinvented with the addition of a 75°C cooked hen’s egg and a silky, smooth fish velouté. Old-school dhaltjies are given a modern twist with a flourish of cauliflower and pickled sultanas. The slow-cooked lamb shoulder – drizzled with a rich jus and served with a lamb shank tortellini and roast vegetables – is the perfect meat-lover’s main course.

If you’re a curry lover then the selection of seafood and chicken curries on offer are great options, served with rotis and a selection of condiments which allows you to season the curry to your perfect specifications. End the meal on a sweet note with the key lime pie, which is a delicious balance of tart and sweet.

Drinks
The wine list is extensive and includes some very exclusive ones. There is a selection of wines also offered by the glass. Each tasting menu is paired with specific wines at an additional cost to the menu. Cocktails are available on request.

Service
Service staff is attentive and personable. From the moment that you make your booking, the restaurant does their utmost to cater to your every specification, whether it be a special occasion or confirming dietary needs.

Ambience
The restaurant terrace overlooks the ocean, great for sunset views. Inside, the décor echoes the blue of the ocean. The middle of the restaurant has mechanical, tropical fans giving the place an interesting eclectic feel. The setting is very formal, as one would expect from a fine dining restaurant, so expect pressed white linens, multiple sets of cutlery and an amuse bouche to start off your meal.

And…
Dress code for diners is semi-formal. Men are required to wear long trousers and closed shoes.

    Dear Editor Over the weekend of January 10/11th 2015 my wife and I were treated to a fun-filled experience at the 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa. A leading chocolate company in conjunction with this magnificent and majestic hotel on the shores of the Atlantic and below the 12 Apostles range of mountains treated us to a feast. Our first food experience was lunch at The Cafe Grill. We had lunch out doors and the background is from the pools behind a picturesque nice vegetative paradise leading to the mountain trail. I had a burger and my wife kingklip and chips. I also had chocolate mousse for dessert whilst my lady had coffee. Our food experience continued with a three course dinner at their plush Azure Restaurant. The view from the terrace overlooks the ocean. The breeze was not accommodating we then ate indoors For starter we both had their chicken noodle soup. They also had choice of bread, sweet, rye and whole wheat. For mains I had Cape Salmon served with vegetables whilst my wife had beef schnitzel, before winding with "the Three scoops of ice cream" for dessert. Their fish was in the "catch of the day" and did not regret my choice of the salmon. Then the following morning, I had their English breakfast, as well as an omellette, after a cereal. The latter is filled with such delicious delicacies that I just could not resist. My wife said she did not feel very hungry and just had a cereal and then a fruit salad. The ambiance in their three restaurants, they also have The Leopard Bar - they serve finger food servings which we had as were having a sun-downer there on Saturday after. Their sandwiches, mixture of various food stuffs was delicious. The food quality was not the only thing worthwhile here but also the service of the staff. I really enjoyed eating all the eateries in this serene establishment!!

    Cape Town has far better places than the Azure.We have just had dinner at Azure to celebrate our daughter's birthday! There is no excuse for serving a burnt curry,insipid to add insult to it all.
    Poor service to go with this.
    The fish which was the replacement meal had bones.That is definitely not what a good chef will serve.A long wiry strand which I hope was the stem of the thyme!!!
    So disappointed as. Were only spending one night in Cape Town and we should have celebrated elsewhere.

    What a disaster! The most expensive awful food available in Cape Town. Raw veal, yellowtail waiting to give the unsuspecting patron scombroid and complete, lack of response from management. This is one restaurant that I will never visit again!

    I have to disagree with John. The squid starter is absolutely delicious, in fact it is a must have every time I dine at Azure restaurant. Their executive chef, Henrico is fantastic! A humble and talented soul! Azure restaurant is definitely the gem of the Cape.
