"The Waterside - A Delicious Experience"
10.0 Cuisine 10 | Service 10 | Atmosphere 10

We really enjoyed our dinner at The Waterside. The service was incredible, super efficient and all the staff really know their stuff. The food was equally as incredible, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Portion sizes were great - even on the generous side. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We will definitely be back.

About The Waterside Restaurant

Cuisine: Fine Dining

Situated in the beautiful Pierhead Building, guests will be welcomed to PIER Restaurant on the first floor, and The Waterside Restaurant on the ground floor – with each offering a different, but equally exceptional, dining experience. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of the Victoria Wharf, these two restaurants will offer diners an opportunity to escape to the tranquility of waterside dining – with the iconic views that have made this attraction so famous worldwide.

Says Kirton on these exciting new ventures for The La Colombe Group, “We have been looking at various sites at the Waterfront for many years now - when this site became available we needed little convincing to undertake this project. We hope to create an experience the Waterfront has never seen before - for both locals and international guests alike.”

Casual fine-dining at The Waterside Restaurant

Tempting guests for a spot of ocean-side dining on the ground floor is The Waterside Restaurant – offering a sophisticated, but more casual menu that guests can enjoy both indoors, and on the outdoor deck – perfect for sumptuous summer lunches.

Bringing her expertise to the kitchen is Roxy Mudie, who will be Head Chef, having previously worked as Sous Chef at both La Colombe and Protégé.

Says Kirton on Roxy’s appointment, “Roxy has worked with me for seven years, over which time I’ve watched her grow – and could not be more proud of her as she takes this next step in her career. She is a bubble of talent waiting to explode and I can’t wait to watch her spread her wings in this exciting new space”.

Van Zyl Van der Merwe, long-standing La Colombe alumnus, will join The Waterside team as Front of House Manager.

Taking a peek at The Waterside’s menu, guests can look forward to Cape Malay crayfish salad or Asian pork belly with scallops.
