Out and about at the V & A Waterfront
Last weekend the The Boyf & I spent 24 hours indulging in fabulous food and enjoying the high life, compliments of the fabulous V & A Waterfront....
On Saturday we went to collect the keys for our luxurious marina Village & Life apartment (which would be our "home" for the night). After being escorted to our ultra modern apartment, we had a bit of time to take in the view and enjoy a glass of bubbly on our balcony before going for a stroll around the mall.
After a bit a shopping at the V & A Waterfront, we headed to the 5-star Cape Grace Hotel for dinner at Signal restaurant. On entering the restaurant I could not help but be impressed by the sparkling chandeliers and the elegant atmosphere.
We ordered a 3 course meal and a great bottle of red wine. The creative Cape cuisine was fresh and inventive, but the Boyf found that the delicious portions were smaller than his appetite *winks*. Overall it was a very lovely dining experience and the service was brilliant (Note: while I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking to splurge on a extravagant night out, this is definitely not the place to go for a budget-friendly dinner).
After dinner we trotted down to the Bascule whisky bar for a night cap. The bar is cozy, comfortable and the perfect place to go for a chilled drink. The Boyf, who is quite the whisky enthusiast, was happily overwhelmed by the wide selection of whiskys.
The next morning we strolled over to the One & Only Hotel for breakfast at Reuben's. The breakfast buffet was ridiculously awesome - there was everything from fresh fruits to oysters (which The Boyf just had to try). I was especially impressed with the amazing, mountain view from our table (pictured below).
After our yummy breakfast, we took a moment to photograph the envy-worthy yachts docked in the Marina and imagined how awesome it would be if one of them was ours (*sigh* hopefully one day). Then it was off to pack up and head back to reality.
Thank you V & A Waterfront for an amazing 24 hours... we will be back soon.
Note: You and your partner could be whisked away on an unforgettable experience by entering the 'Get Away with the V&A' competition. For the chance to win, get your competition passport and visit the V&A Waterfront four times by 31 August 201. Trot over HERE for more information.
