This is the only place to eat in the international part of the airport once you've been through security. All the decent places to eat are before security. Therefore, the restaurant can monopolise on the hungry travellers with minimal effort. Over half the menu was...More

Shocking on all levels of service... no smile, no grace, not enough tables prepared or cleaned, no sense of urgency - manager should be fired. These guys are lucky to have these precious jobs..

Staff is unfriendly and service is slow especially if you have an early international flight. Unfortunately it is the only only coffee shop / restaurant open if you need a coffee or something to eat before departure. Quality of food is nothing to write home...More

A Lack of Competition at the Airport for places to eat makes this final meal in Cape Town just awful. Terrible service and food.

After three great weeks in South Africa our last eating experience was simply awful. We planned breakfast after check in and security at the International Airport. There is only one place to eat once you have gone through the checks - Cafe Dulce. The service...More

Dirty tables, pasta was by far the worst I ever had. Staff does not care about anything or anyone. CT airport is in desperate need of competition for this joint.
