If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed that I’m quite the tapas lover… I mean why have just one meal when you can try a bunch of tasty things instead? Makes sense to me.
This is why I certainly did not hesitate when I got an invite to try out Vicky Christina’s, a Spanish tapas bar & grill on the Camps Bay strip. My friend D who travelled with me for part of my Spain trip back in 2013 made for the perfect tapas eating partner-in-crime. We know our tapas – mainly because we ate our own body weight of the stuff on that trip…
Now Vicky Christina’s (and I am very much assuming here) is a play on the film Vicky Christina Barcelona, one of my favourite movies featuring a hot, sexy cast including Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem & Penélope Cruz. It also happens to be part of a franchise that also has restaurants over in Johannesburg & Durban.
Of course, there’s no better location than the Camps Bay beachfront baby. So without even seeing the other restaurants, I’m going to go out of a limb here and say that this must simply be the sexiest one.
But I’ll let you decide for yourself. Here’s a quick tour:
Of course, it’s also all about the views…
Overall though, this was a really lovely dining experience. You have a front row seat to the sunset, it makes for a beautiful sundowner spot, the service is friendly, the Sangria is good, and the tapas are tasty. Price wise it’s also a pretty solid option when compared to the other options on the strip which do tend to be quite pricey.
For all these reasons I’m going to give Vicky Christina’s a score of on the Miss K Kiss-o-Meter scale.
