Enjoyed every minute of being there. Definitely want to go back, we loved it. Visited there every day and never got tired of being there. If you go to Cape Town you cannot go there without a visit to the Water front.

An excellent day out. Shopping for all tastes and needs in the mall. An abundance of varied eating establishments, gold shops are a must visit as the price of gold jewelry is affordable indeed Mitchells is a very hospitable watering hole both day and night.
