Waterfront Winter Experience 2011

The V&A Waterfront asked me to tell my readers about the Winter Experience promotion they are running. Why did they ask me? Well, because they know that I am a big fan of the Waterfront.

Many people seem to see the Waterfront as a place for tourists to go, but I actually spend quite a bit of time there. I also really like that there are tourists there a lot of the time as it creates a holiday vibe. I love walking around seeing people enjoying themselves and speaking all different languages.

I don’t go to the cinema a lot, but with both the Nu Metro and Ster Kinekor Nouveau there, when I do want to watch a movie I do it at the Waterfront. But generally I go there either because I need to do some shopping, or because I want to have a meal. In fact, last year I posted an article about my top 5 restaurants in the Waterfront.

This is where the Winter Experience promotion features because as part of the promotion, a bunch of restaurants are offering great specials. I recently ate at City Grill and Meloncino, both were very enjoyable. I also eat regularly at Sevruga, as I just can’t resist the half price sushi (extended until 8pm now). Don’t tell anyone, but I’m also a huge fan of the fish & chips (with a prawn top-up) at Ocean Basket and a quick breakfast at Mugg & Bean!

If you are planning a couple of visits to the Waterfront, you might want to enter the competition they are running. The prizes are huge! You can find out more at the special Winter Experience website.

See you there.

Ps. Have you seen that Harbour House (from Kalk Bay) is opening over the way from Sevruga soon?

Pps. There are massive renovations happening in the Clocktower section, so keep an eye out for exciting new developments there.
