Portswood Fine Dining
The Quarterdeck Restaurant occupies a section of the Original Breakwater Prison in 1860 and known as the Good Conduct Ward. The Breakwater Prison now owned by the University of Cape Town Business School, was built exclusively for “European” convicts as a rehabilitation center. “Non-European” prisoners remained in the Old Convict Station for a period of time as cheap labour for the quarry and the harbour. They were also rented out to locals as house servants and gardeners.
The Quarterdeck Restaurant is a relaxed yet elegant venue, housed in what used to be the Cape Colony’s Convict Station. This beautifully restored national monument with its rich history, is the perfect setting in which to savour the best of Cape Malay cuisine. Patrons can sample a wide selection of mouthwatering local dishes at lunch or dinner.
Explore the V & A Waterfront and you’re sure to find a veritable feast for the eyes and tastebuds to savour. A quick stroll will take you further to the Two Oceans Aquarium and Maritime Museum.
The City Centre is a mere 3 km away and here you will find the Houses of Parliament, the Castle and National Gallery. For the ultimate Cape Town experience, take a cable car trip up Table Mountain.
