Review: Sevruga

Sevruga is a classic, stylish, fine dining eatery in the heart of the V & A Waterfront…with some of the most stunning day and night-time views.  The gorgeous, fresh harbour air adds to the vibe and when then sun sets, the sights are transformed by a myriad of lights from across the bay.

The continental menu, which reads more like the holy grail of menus, is exquisitely thought out with incredibly interesting pairings of flavours and colors, some of which might take you by surprise, like the Norwegian Salmon Wellington, a unique and out-of-the-box take on the traditional Steak Wellington, but I’ll get to that.

The Spicy Peanut and Chicken Pot Stickers and the Kingklip Donuts (not on the menu), served as signature appetisers, but we felt we had to break out of our ‘Sevruga’ comfort zone so we also tried the Tomato and Basil soup (which we shared) – it’s a sneaky little offering (for the summer months) and I stand to be corrected, but I’m sure the base of this thick, glorious starter, is some kind of beef reduction, if not, I’m going with a Balsamic Vinegar twist.

The golden brown, sliver of toast with which it’s served is light and crunchy and the soup is just thick enough, allowing you to scoop a little up with the toast, as opposed to the usual dunk-and-fish option you have to contend with, with a traditional broth.


I’m sure you know the saying “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” – well at Sevruga, you do fish! It is what they are renowned for, so for our mains we had the Salmon Wellington, the Sevruga signature Kingklip & Langoustines and the Fillet and Baby Crayfish. Seafood, in all it’s Caviar glory.

If you are familiar with Steak Wellington, you will know that it’s a succulent chunk of meat, wrapped in pastry and baked to perfection. Sevruga does just this, but with Salmon, wrapped in a snug layer of Bok Choy, which is a little peppery and cuts the richness of the Salmon beautifully. This combo is then pastry wrapped and backed, till the crust is crunchy to the bite and the Salmon is juicy and pink.

The Kingklip and Langoustines are without a doubt one of the very best seafood dishes on offer.  Two Langoustines butterflied and cooked in tarragon butter with crushed potatoes. The firm fish is crumbly and soft and compliments the crustacean in this surf-and-surf meal, perfectly.

There’s not much that I can say about steak. It’s either damn good or awful, but the true test of an impeccably cooked piece of meat, (for me at least) is in its ability to prevail as a take-a-way. So let me just say that I ate the little that was left of my medium rare fillet for breakfast! Divine.

At Sevruga you have an extensive choice of deserts, but I have never made it past the Crème Caramel Martinis. I apologise to Roxy and the team for this, but these heavenly silky martini-puddings have me by the throat. I am their hostage and I do not want to break free.

    Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
