Michelin quality food and service in this stylist restaurant . Friendly and helpful staff made our evening a delight, enhanced by live background jazz pianist and bass. All this for a very reasonable cost.More

I've been there with some friends. The employees were extremely friendly and attentive. Although the menu did not offer any vegan options, they created an unbeatable vegan multi-vogue in the kitchen. The restaurant's atmosphere is also highly recommendable.More

Hotel restaurant above the V&A Waterfront. Only fifteen tables. Incredible attentive service. Lamb Wellington was a top five meal in 40 years of travel. Even the palate cleanser was sublime. A great counterpoint to the excite and pub food of the Waterfront.More

Description
Dash Restaurant & Bar, although it caters for Queen Victoria Hotel guests, is a stand-alone establishment that welcomes patrons from near and far. Extraordinary artworks embellish the walls in a bold fashion. Further, a live pianist sets the tone during dinner service from Tuesday to Saturday, a delightful accompaniment to the exquisite fine dining offered at this restaurant. The menu is concise and changes every few weeks. The chef and his team place much focus on each ingredient’s unique flavour and combine them creatively to delight the palate. The bar offers an extensive selection of single-malt whiskies and wines, and is a tasteful meeting spot.
