The Brass Bell

Up until recently, the last time I had visited the Brass Bell (www.brassbell.co.za) was in 2004 when I was a student at UCT.
Suffice to say, the crowd and vibe is still very much student orientated, topped off with local surfers and random tourists in search of dinner with a sea view.
The view is the best part about The Brass Bell. The food is pretty average. Expect fish and chips and pizzas. The cocktails are cheap – but not too nasty.
As great as the view is, it's a nice place to perhaps stop over for a drink, but it is a bit grotty and not ideal for a first date for example. There are so many nicer, more upmarket places in the area such as Polana (www.harbourhouse.co.za/polana) and Cape to Cuba (www.capetocuba.com).

The Brass bell is a great old institution with a stunning position; however the service leaves a lot to be desired. Some of the items on the menu are really good but the fish and chips has to be the worst in Cape Town.
