It was pouring with rain in Cape Town when we left for the launch of the recently revamped Two Oceans Restaurant at Cape Point. But as anyone who lives in Cape Town knows it can be four seasons in one day, so optimism prevailed as we headed off to the point where African currents collide. And we were rewarded – the sun shone and glittered across a calm view of False Bay giving guests reason to be proud of this, one of the most visited tourism hotspots in the Cape.  

Occupying an enviable position, the new Two Oceans Restaurant is set within the cliffs high above the south-western most tip of the Cape Peninsula. Its design theme is in harmony with its surroundings -  the newly proclaimed Good Hope Section of the Table Mountain National Park. Seating 350 people, the restaurant has a reputation for being family-friendly, with great service and excellent cuisine, and its R3-million refurbishment makes it one of the most stylish seafood eateries in the Cape.

Inspired by its surroundings, the interior design ensures that all guests are able to enjoy the stunning views of this unique location – a view that entices visitors from all over the world and will make you feel as if you're on  an ocean liner with the sea spread out before you.

Inside, the entrance screen of dark acid green kelp filters the arrival view. The ceiling was inspired by the rib cage of a whale and the movement of the wind – both frequent visitors to Cape Point – and is an evocative structure that draws the eye towards the sea. Sea washed flooring sets the furniture off perfectly; feature pieces influenced by vintage Cape designs using bleached timber and woven synthetic rattan to add texture. Organic shaped lamps glow softly against brick clad walls and a clever mural reflects the essence of the sea with a decidedly African touch. The whimsical arrangement of light-reflecting "beach trinkets” of glass, shells and bone adds to the cool ambience.

Executive Chef Phil Alcock says his new menus are influenced by the ocean and the spices of the Cape, and from what we tasted the ambition of being one the top seafood restaurants in the Cape is well within his grasp.
Thai Head Sushi Chef, Sarawut Sukkowplang deftly prepares sushi with the freshest of seafood and it's not surprising that the sushi bar is already garnering accolades.

With its new look the Two Oceans Restaurant is undeniably seductive, exactly what General Manager Troy Constandakis intended when briefing the designers and the ongoing success of this restaurant has been the enduring partnership between Cape Point Partnership and the owners of the restaurant – a vital ingredient in this type of operation.
