A dining table with a view of Green Point, Sea Point, the new stadium and the Atlantic Ocean

I finally had dinner in the revolving restaurant of the Ritz Hotel after an earlier visit of
in the Convention Center

I took all these shots with my new ultra wide angle Canon 10-20mm Lens apart from the last one

The view is to die for ..
Be prepared though.... the whole place seems to be in a time
warp, the decor, the food, including the music of the lady pianist :)
Still....I enjoyed it , the food was not bad and the staff is friendly
I had Chicken and prawn sate from the grill and
grilled line fish in a piquant papaya sauce
oh ok I do not reallywant to admit this...
 but I also had vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce

The Convention Center against the backdrop of Table Mountain and Devils Peak

Design Indaba Expo is a 100% local-is-lekker celebration of South Africa’s ingrained creativity.
 Advertising, architecture, craft, décor, film, fashion, graphic design, interior design, jewellery, new media, publishing, product design and visual media, are all presented shoulder-to-shoulder

Shot from home, late afternoon


  1. ...the old plaza hotel's revolving restaurant has got to rank as one of cape town's craziest waste of space...what a shame, it could and should be one of the finest venues are extremely brave/ foolhardy/ lucky to have eaten there and survived the ordeal....

  2. He he was not that bad! It was certainly not cheap Paid R46 for 2 sticks of chicken and prawns starter and R 99 for the line fish ..

    I was told that yeers ago this used to be THE place to go for your wedding party This was ofcourse before the Waterfront was build

    What struck me was how small it is up there The bar is just below the revolving restaurant and it is a dark almost claustrophobic area, then the restaurant itself is obviously circular but also narrow What I did like was that it does a full circle in 1 hr but its no good for night shots At least mine were all useless :(
