LUXO – Cruise and Dine on The Alba Restaurant Boat

Trying new restaurants and having different dining experiences during each review is an amazing perk to our job, and it’s always exciting to try something new! We were very excited when The Alba Restaurant invited us for a Cruise and Dining experience on their first of its kind restaurant boat, which offers incredible views paired with delicious food.

Cape {Town} Etc – Fine dining on the water

The Alba Restaurant takes fine dining in Cape Town to a whole other level of enjoyment. The boat cruises around the harbour at the V&A Waterfront, while you are treated to exquisite food and wine within a restaurant setting. It is definitely a new experience to try out in the Mother City. The Alba offers both lunch and dinner menus, and is open Monday to Sunday.

I Love Foodies Cape Town

For dessert, the Alba served a platter with Dark Chocolate Mousse and Milk Chocolate Truffles, rolled in pistachio and with a touch of chilli. We were both completely stuffed at this point but chocolate truffles and chocolate mousse can never be said no to.

There’s a new restaurant at the V&A Waterfront – but you won’t find it in the shopping mall. The Alba is the first fine dining floating restaurant in Cape Town with professional chefs and a fully equipped kitchen on board.

Inside Guide – A unique way to witness the V&A

Zeitz Mocaa? Check. Table Mountain? Check. Robben Island? Check. As unashamedly touristy as these things are, they also happen to be essential facets of the Mother City’s rich and colourful tapestry. And, actually, if you were a tourist in the Mother City, you’d be missing out on a memorable and enriching experience by not enjoying at least some of these bucket-list moments.

The recently launched floating restaurant is another of these experiences. A first of its kind in Cape Town, The Alba is a restaurant boat that serves brunch, lunch, sunset canapés, high tea and even dinners on the water while cruising around the V&A Waterfront.

There’s a new restaurant in town but you won’t find it in any suburb, on any street, or down any alley…that’s because it’s not located on terra firma at all but rather on the gently undulating surface of Cape Town’s harbour water! The Alba Restaurant is the first of its kind in the Mother City: a fully equipped and professionally serviced fine dining restaurant aboard a boat.

The food was exquisite! A 3 course fully halaal and authentic South African menu to tantalise your taste buds. From Salmon to Springbok, it was a difficult choice to make. For starters, I chose the baked camembert, whilst my companion tried the Springbok Carpaccio.

Inspired Living

We had a truly memorable experience aboard The Alba Restaurant; it was great to do something different and see a different part of the V&A and the harbour. As far value for money, I do not think that R595 per person is over the top, as it covers the cruise, a three-course meal, as well as wine or other drinks. It is something I would recommend for a special occasion as options include brunch, lunch, high tea or dinner cruise, there is something for everyone.

It’s 2019 and we are back to full steam ahead. If you’re still longing for a bit of a holiday vibe, why not give The Alba Restaurant a try? The Alba is a floating fine dining restaurant which cruises in and around the V&A Waterfront harbour boasting beautiful views and great food. I visited The Alba in November during a quick work trip and enjoyed the 3 course lunch cruise. There’s also a choice of a bubbly brunch cruise, an afternoon cocktail cruise or a dinner cruise. Upon docking the boat, we were served a glass of sparkling wine. For my starter I chose the baked camembert parcel with a berry compote. The pastry was crisp and oozed lovely warm baked camembert. Loved this starter.
