This is one of Cape Town’s hottest beachside cafés and for good reason. Firstly, it is set in a prime location- Granger Bay- and is framed by the ocean on one side and the majestic Cape town stadium on the other side. It is within walking distance from the V&A Waterfront. Set on golden beach sand, the Grand offers indoor and outdoor dining with space for many people at a time. Besides being an awesome eating and drinking spot it has hosted summer concerts which have proved very popular. The food is exquisite, fresh, fragrant and mouth-wateringly good. The menu is expensive, but the quality of the food and generous portions offset the costs. Of course the service is excellent. – Gill A
