Dining

Salt Restaurant
Commanding a breathtaking position in Bantry Bay, Salt is an all-round sensory experience. Floor to ceiling glass windows stretch the length of the restaurant, unfolding to reveal the fresh seabreeze and sounds of the crashing waves below. Distinguished by, impeccable service and classic, contemporary dcor, salt serves simple, approachable, honest food in an easy-dining atmosphere, complemented by an extensive wine list of 70 wines, all available by the glass.
Salt Deli
Salt Deli serves classic deli fare and great breakfasts - like eggs Benedict and cream cheese and salmon bagels - in a relaxed atmosphere.There is a very strong focus on quality. We source the best quality food and ingredients available, and prefer to use South African suppliers. Salt Deli's retail section is a favourite shopping place for hotel guests and locals alike, with 80% of the products sold being South African and completely unique. Shoppers enjoy a wide selection of olive oils and grape vinegars, salad dressings and preserves. There are also flavoured salts and many other well known deli ranges. Olivier says his aim is to showcase South African niche producers that produce international standard products.
Salt Vodka Bar
There isn't a vodka bar in Cape Town and we felt the concept would perfectly complement the branding of Salt - both are elemental, clean products. Here guests can relax in the sophisticated lounge and enjoy a choice of 30 premium brand vodkas, served neat or as a colourful cocktail, and accompanied by delectable tapas from Salt Deli. The walk-in champagne fridge also has a choice of 30 bubblies - half local, half French - all available by the glass. To complete the hedonistic experience are panoramic views of the moody Atlantic - perfectly reflecting the uncluttered, free flowing essence of the Ambassador Hotel, Salt Restaurant, Deli and Vodka Bar. It just doesn't get much better.

Best ocean front view in cape town

Absolutely beautiful view of ocean, right on beach in a cove with little wind, so quiet and able to keep windows open to hear the waves. Perfect service, clean and great value in winter. Restraunt at hotel is very good, as are 2 across the street.

Stunning and friendly hotel!

The hotel was positioned in a great location - within easy reach to shops as well as easy routes to the V&A Waterfront and the motorways. The staff were very friendly and made our stay an absolute pleasure. The food at Koi was exquisite with Asian fusion cuisine and the best sushi I have ever had. The rooms and restaurant had beautiful views over the Atlantic sea and we caught the odd sunset whilst feasting on the tasty meals. Will recommend this hotel to everybody - whether it's for families or friends or couples. I'll be staying again for sure :)

Hire a car to visit the big attractions - it's cheaper than paying a tour guide and the routes are stunning!
