Fodor's Expert Review Den Anker

$$ Victoria and Alfred Waterfront Belgian

Take a break from your Waterfront wanderings at this Belgian-style eatery, where you can enjoy as good a pot of mussels with frites as you're likely to find anywhere in Cape Town. With its focus on meat and seafood, expect other dishes like filet béarnaise, rabbit simmered in Belgian beer, or Norwegian salmon in a beurre blanc. A wide range of imported Belgian beers is available, with six served on tap. Sitting on the pier head between the Albert Mall and the clock tower (the departure point for trips to Robben Island), this glassed-in space enjoys lovely harbor and mountain views whether you sit inside or out, and makes for great people- (or seal-) watching.
