FoodBlog – Cape Town restaurants: Alba Lounge

The restaurant is situated at the V&A Waterfront just above the Hildebrand restaurant. The view over the V&A Waterfront from Alba Lounge is just breath-taking. Even if you don’t plan to eat or drink anything, just go there at night for the view. It’s amazing.
I’ve been to Alba Lounge a few times for birthday functions and a couple of times with friends for cocktails. It’s an awesome venue for functions or just to relax. The venue has flair, sophistication and offers a complete relaxed atmosphere to cater for everyone’s needs.
I wouldn’t go there for dinner though. I didn't even know they had a proper menu. Firstly, it doesn’t feel like a restaurant. If you want excellent food, go downstairs to Hildebrand – it might cost you your entire allowance for the month though. Secondly, they provided finger food for the birthday functions. And it was bad! If you can’t pull off finger food, how much better can the actual proper dishes be? Or maybe they just didn’t care because it was a function. Who knows?
That doesn’t mean I won’t be going to Alba Lounge again. It’s a perfect venue to relax and enjoy good company with friends. And cocktails are a definite must!!!
