The V&A Waterfront
From catamaran cruises to the world of cinema, and extraordinary restaurants to ocean adventures; this is Africa’s premier shopping destination and centre of exploration and activity for the whole family.
The food scene at the V&A Waterfront veers excitingly from lip-smacking street food to cleverly crafted gourmet plates, and fish dishes fresh from the harbour. Eating out in Cape Town is a feast that not only entices appetites, but stimulates the senses with music, energy, and ambience.
The Silo Hotel favourites include Pier – a fine-dining experience at the water’s edge; the Portuguese-inspired Baja; Harbour House; Willoughby & Co; La Parada; and The Waterside. Our list of recommendations includes some of the best restaurants in the city – the known and the unknown – selected carefully by our in-house dining experts.
Cape Town is a city for adventure-seekers, and the beauty of it is that you’re able to explore nature right from the city. Both ocean and mountain are on your doorstep when you stay at The Silo Hotel, and the V&A Waterfront is the centre of it all.
Cape Town’s summer weather compels you to explore outdoors, and one of the best ways to do that is on the sea. Dolphins, seals, and whales are spotted in the bay, and if you’re out on a guided excursion or a catamaran cruise, you’ll be first in line to see them. Enjoy a sunset cruise or hire a stand-up paddle board for a self-guided cruise around the harbour, or book an open water adventure in a kayak and get a different view of the beautiful fringe of the Cape.
