“There are two Quarterdeck Restaurants”
It's a bit confusing, the Tripadvisor map points to the Portswood Hotel at the VA Waterfront but the pictures and some of the reviews are of the Simonstown restaurant, 50 kms away. I'm not sure if they are part of the same franchise or have the same owners, but we went to the one at the Portswood Hotel which seems more upscale than the Simonstown restaurant.The restaurant is inside the hotel, so you don't get a view of the harbourfront. There is seating inside, but we ate on the patio, near the pool.They have about 5 different Cape Malay curries on the menu. We didn't have any curry, instead we ordered the Cape Malay Sampler, an appetizer-sized plate, which consisted of samoosas (not a typo, it's how the South Africans spell samosa), spring rolls, meatballs, breaded cheese & breaded prawns. Served with different sauces, like chutney, cucumber & yogurt. Very delicious. We also ordered the bobotie: mince meat with Cape Malay spices, some almonds and raisins, topped with egg omelette. It was served with two different kinds of rice, a small piece of roti and some Indian papadum bread. We really enjoyed the bobotie, it was a nice-sized portion served in a small casserole dish. Well spiced and tasty. Would definitely recommend it to anyone!Total for 1 Cape Malay sampler + 2 main dish bobotie + 1 bottle of sparkling water was 485 ZAR.
