Authentic Portuguese Cuisine with a Touch of Mozambican Flair

MAReSOL, at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town is a friendly yet sophisticated 200 seater restaurant. Located in the old Hildebrand building, MAReSOL boasts breath-taking harbour and mountain views. The restaurant is home to an eclectic combination of Portuguese and Mozambican cuisine.

There is no shortage of much loved Portuguese flavours to be enjoyed with a glass of Vinho Tinto including old favourites like peri-peri chicken, trinchado and espetadas. Emphasis is placed on shellfish such as langoustines, crayfish and prawns. The building has been architecturally designed by the esteemed Wollf Architects, reflecting the beauty of its surroundings.  Careful attention has placed on ensuring that no matter where in the restaurant you are, you will always have magnificent harbour and mountain views.

With its carefully planned layout, design and an enticing menu, MAReSOL opened its doors at the end of November 2016.
