Advice for visitors
Foreigners should try the biltong and droerwors offerings, before tucking into their main meal of choice. An all-round favourite is the delicious cheeseburger and chips, but for the more adventurous, the exotic meats from springbok and ostrich to zebra and crocodile! The portions are quite large, so make sure you arrive with a big appetite. City Grill is perfectly positioned for sundowners, lazy afternoons and dinner to round off a leisurely evening taking in the buzz of the famous V&A Waterfront. The food is Halal friendly and is suitable for groups with varying budgets. Keep an eye out for seasonal specials which boast serious value for money.
Did you know
Biltong is dried meat that can be made from any game animal imaginable. It has been a staple part of the South African diet for hundreds of years; however, it has recently turned into a bit of a delicacy due to the inclusion of more exotic ingredients. Biltong comes from the Dutch word ‘Bil’ meaning buttock and ‘tong’ meaning strip.
