Boasting one of the best restaurant locations in Cape Town, if not South Africa, PRIMI Wharf has uninterrupted views over the Atlantic Seaboard extending from Moullie Point out towards Robin Island, over the harbor and across Bloubergstrand.

Stone cladding, subdued lighting, burnished steel and polished woodwork reflect and accentuate the ambience and energy from the adjacent harbour, whilst the 260m2 deck space and interior platforms create light and uncluttered space from which to enjoy the spectacular views. Attention grabbing contemporary art and natural raw wood, work in harmony to create a sense of richness and warmth.


However it is with the introduction of the “Mood Points” created within PRIMI Wharf’s 1000m2 floor space, that the Primi flair for generating brilliance from the routine is most clearly apparent.

Inspired by Italian tradition but influenced by the cosmopolitan present with Traditional, Gourmet and Comfort Food offerings. The food is a masterful display of culinary simplicity and complexity in perfect harmony, with all menu items freshly prepared from scratch using only the finest sourced ingredients. Meals are prepared with the the healthier options of preparation; with ingredients lightly sautéed, seared, grilled, cooked al dente and burgers iron-pressed ensuring the natural flavours and integrity of the ingredients are prominent.


PRIMI is all about best efforts to serve an inspired experience of exceptional food and service and of course real, healthy, value for money!

And it starts at the top. Francesco Zanasi is known for putting his all into PRIMI. “When I die, I don’t want to be remembered for running a restaurant, I want to be remembered for having changed people’s lives, having made a difference.” That’s why the restaurant’s constant electric character echoes the PRIMI philosophy - that “work is love made visible.”

The dynamic, unpretentious atmosphere at PRIMI works for both serious business talk and for social chitchat, and for everything in-between. It’s a good place for the family and an even better place for inspired get-togethers.
