To begin with, my wife and I are vegans/vegetarians although we do eat some seafood. Very limited menu for us. Drinks are somewhat skimpy. The staff, Edward and Albert, are wonderful. Could be better for the food.

Firstly, arriving from a delayed flight, I was a little late for lunch and starving. So I tried the RBG next to reception. Service was fairly friendly. The food took a long time to arrive, which usually means either it's being freshly cooked from scratch, or the cook is narcoleptic. I had the Coconut Chicken Curry which was very tasty... More

Good food but not a big enough selection to eat in the hotel every night. You can get more by using the bar menu but still not many options

The restaurant is a cold place with no atmosphere. The food is expensive for the quality you get. Their breakfast (I do not know the cost as it was part of the room rate) is not bad at all.

How delightful! This place featured a wonderful array of food with an omelet chef for those so inclined. The coffee flowed, the staff warm and friendly and breakfast satisfying.

Menu was varied but portions were rather small and service not particularly good. They had run out of some items meaning not everything was available.

We went there for lunch. Took a long time to get out dishes, the waitron did not ask me how I wanted my steak cooked, was terribly overdone( totally destroyed), mashed potatoes were not mashed at all there were large pieces of undercooked potatoes in there!!!! Was unreasonably pricey.

Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore Hotel Celebrates One YearThe Mother City’s newest business traveller-friendly hotel looks back on a successful first 12 monthsJust over 12 months since the Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore thrust open its doors, the city centre-based hotel has much to celebrate.For starters, since the first customer stepped foot inside its handsomely furnished rooms in November 2011, the fledgling accommodation has operated at just above a 60% occupancy rate, a performance level that both well exceeded expectation and easily eclipsed average first-year benchmarks.Now, going into the second quarter of 2013, the property continues its exceptional break from the starting block, and looks to further capitalise on its excellent location, business-friendly ethos, ‘Yes I Can!’ attitude and ballooning clout with the local market.From the doorstep, it’s easy to reach nearly all of Cape Town’s corporate headquarters and parastatals,and the hotel are connected to an international brand that understands the corporate market worldwide.Snug in the bosom of the Cape Town CBD, just a short walk from the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), bustling nightlife artery of Long Street, Cape Town Train Station and a handful of transport jumping-off points (think MyCiTi and Hop On Hop Off City Sightseeing bus stops), the hotel expertly couples its outstanding placement with a selection of business-savvy amenities. Those travelling to the Mother City for work and overnighting at the Park Inn by Radisson can look forward to a warm and homely experience as well as a slew of appealing extras, like free high-speed Wi-fi, spacious and well-equipped business-friendly room categories and free transport within a 5-km radius of the property (this includes complimentary transit to the storied V&A Waterfront).What’s more, as part of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group – it’s one of the world’s largest and most dynamic hotel collections – the Park Inn by Radisson has drawn on the expertise and trustworthiness that comes with such a widely recognised name to lure leisure-based visitors as well.It’s an international brand at affordable local prices.Meaning that, alongside its reasonable rates, the accommodation flaunts friendly, well-trained staff accustomed to going well beyond the call of duty to ensure guests enjoy a pleasant stay.Though, aside from celebrating the headway it’s made with out-of-towners and those from abroad, the still-sparkling accommodation is also looking back on 12 months well spent cultivating a positive image with the local market.“Capetonians have really taken to the hotel as a funky venue,” Mark specifies. “For one, the 11th-floor Sunroof Terrace is coming into its own as an outside venue for lunches and as an attractive space for events.”From its sky-high perch above the hustle and bustle of the city below, the top-floor space has started to register on the radars of those looking for sundowner spots and places to watch the sport. Not to mention, slowly, it’s becoming home to much-anticipated local to-dos, like the monthly It’s a House open-air house music party.Similarly, local workers can look to the Park Inn by Radisson’s fresh downstairs Red Bar & Grill (rbg) restaurant for a reliably good sit-down lunch in a Foreshore area that still offers slim pickings when it comes to satisfying midday meal options. The playful eatery has a seasonally changing selection of salads, sandwiches, grills and pastas for reasonable prices.Overall, as the hotel blows out the candle on its metaphorical cake, it looks forward to another outstanding year made possible thanks to its great location, great service and great value for money.
