At Seelan, guests (whether sitting inside or outside) are treated to a relaxed, yet vibrant, atmosphere that brings a slice of the Mediterranean to the Cape coast. The restaurant is inspired by the languid dining style of the south of France and recreates the joie de vivre (joy of life) of popular French restaurants. Guests can relax while enjoying the contemporary décor, and the sweeping views of the V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain. The restaurant exudes a natural air of charm, reflecting the harbour in front of which it is situated. The menu is inspired by the flavours of Europe and features a wide variety of authentic cuisine alongside an outstanding wine menu – including Seelan’s very own house wine, which is made locally. The cuisine is best described as trendy Italian, with a touch of African- and Indian-inspired dishes.
