In the 15th century, a group of people who ate together was known as a mess”

The Mess is a restaurant and bar located in Cape Town’s trendy De Waterkant Village in Green Point – we are perfectly placed for drinks after work, pre-theatre meals or a night out with friends.


The Mess was born from a vision to create a relaxed environment and friendly atmosphere, putting back a little of what life takes out.

During summer we are open for lunch every Friday from 12:00 - 15:00.


Our menu

“The root of mess is the Old French mes, portion of food".

We have created a menu of dishes using the finest ingredients inspired by flavours from around the world.

Our menu emphasizes sharing plates of enjoyable food, representing a diverse variety of cuisine with discreet but attentive service amongst stylish surroundings.

We love food, lots of different food, just like you!
