    Fantastic food! I had the Caesar salad and it was truely yum as was my salmon, all elements on the plate worked very well. However the orange sorbet was too tart and Icy and too much. The service was indeed good with great explanations on the food. All in all it was a gastronomical experience.
    Dash, a relatively undiscovered jewel near the V & A Waterfront is one of those places where the food taste as good as the presentation. With an exceptional eye for detail, the British Chef Jamie and his team prepare the best food and in frequent visits to the restaurant in the last three years has kept up the standard and each meal can best only be described as a gastronomic feast. I highly recommend this as one of the best restaurants not only in Cape Town but in the world which I had the pleasure to eat at.

    From the Beezy Bailey paintings to the Stolzle glasses and Guy du Toit sculptures, Dash is not a "hotel restaurant".
    At our recent dinner here, we found staff to be exceptionally well trained and attentive to our every need, moving sans sound between the tables. Everything at Dash is about balance, welcome drink (Elderflower and Grape martini) was crisp with salmon bilinis; the sorbet selection proved creamy and not overly sweet - more an indulgence than a palate cleanser! An "Alice in Wonderland" veggie arrangement and lightly roasted scallops proved utmost precision from the kitchen. And as if we were not spoilt enough, a super light pannacotta with the perfect wobble. The winelist is extensive and very well priced, a blessing for both novice and winemaker.
    Impress clients with a lunch and spectacular views, or spoil someone special with a truly superior dinner. We will be dining at Dash again very soon!

    Heard about the restaurant from friends and decided to try it. What a great experience, food was great and service fantasti, worth travelling from Somerset West for.
    I ate here the other night and thought the food and ambience was fantastic. The food is quite fancy and will cost about R400 per head with starters, mains, dessert and a glass of wine. But this is all worth it. For starters we had the cured salmon with baby beetroot and the Caesar salad. The Caesar salad looked like a comet flying through the air on my plate - it was beautiful. For mains we tried the hazelnut encrusted scallops and venison - really delicate and different and stylish. Dessert was liquorice macaroons and chocolate fondant with burned orange sugar - both incredible. The service was impeccable. The food came out fast and ambience was stylish, relaxed and trendy. Highly recommended.
