Concierge.com's insider take:
Half the experience of the Grand Hotel's restaurant is the quirky decor. There's a 1920s cabaret vibe, with big sofas and lavishly appointed tables softly lit by ornate lamps and towering candles. Much of the menu is as rich as the setting, with dishes like sugar salmon and whitebait tempura. For the most part, though, the offerings are strongly focused on standard fish and seafood dishes, such as the grilled crayfish and the sole meunière, all put together by Maggie Ubsdell, who has opened up another Grand in Cape Town.
Open daily from 12:30 pm.
