Cravings for fresh and innovative seafood dishes are satisfied in style at the newly refurbished Cape Town Fish Market at GrandWest. The restaurant has undergone a remodeling as part of the revitalization of the complex’s restaurant and retail offering.
The restaurant has undergone a metamorphosis, with the vibrant interior echoing elements of Cape Town’s picturesque landscapes and the bygone days of small fishing harbours. Under new management and with the new look and feel comes renewed focus on dynamic service and professionalism to deliver an enhanced dining experience for guests.
“Cape Town Fish Market wanted to harness elements of Cape Town’s natural surrounds and capture the essence of the sea while telling a story of times gone by. The new interior is crisp cotemporary while remaining true to Cape Town Fish Market’s laidback and friendly spirit. Customers will certainly get a sense that they are close to the ocean and with this comes the promise of the freshest fish and seafood,” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest.

In the Laureus Awards this year, Lewis Hamilton has been nominated for the Sportsman of the Year Award. Is that a worthy nomination, would you say?
DAVID COULTHARD: Well, not to be disrespectful to the others that have been nominated, and clearly as a motorsports person, I think that Lewis has continued to show that he has all the qualities of an elite sportsman, certainly in motor racing, he’s delivered consistently since he first joined for McLaren in 2007 right through until today. He has been crashed, he’s been the man that you watch during qualifying to see what lap time he can deliver, and he races in a sort of Senna‑esque way. So there’s no question that out of a quality field of drivers, he deserves that nomination. Continue reading
DA statement: 08 April 2016
The DA in the Western Cape calls for the PRASA national office to intervene in the brewing labour conflict in the province and deal with any unresolved matters. In particular, the potential strike action by members of The South African Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu).
Metrorail provides an essential service to the people of the Western Cape. We cannot allow that this dispute brings commuter mobility to a standstill. In my capacity as Chairperson for the Standing Committee on Transport and Public Works in the Western Cape Provincial Parliament, I will write to acting group Chief Executive Officer, Nathi Khena, to call on him to resolve the regional conflict. PRASA must ensure that their agreement with the Satawu national leadership is upheld. The agreement stipulates that no strike action will happen before every alternative avenue, to resolve these legitimate issues amicably, has been exhausted. Continue reading

The City of Cape Town recently activated a virtual fence in Gordon’s Bay as part of its baboon management strategy. Since implementation in mid-January there have been no incidents of the resident troop entering town. Read more below:
In an effort to reduce human-baboon conflict in the Gordon’s Bay area, the City of Cape Town’s Environmental Resource Management Department has implemented a virtual fence system which will assist in deterring the resident baboon troop from entering the residential area.
When the troop enters the zone between their home range (in the protected area) and the houses of Gordon’s Bay, speakers emit the noise of a predator, such as a lion. Baboons immediately sense there is danger and do not enter the zone. The virtual fence then becomes a virtual boundary zone in the mind of the baboon troop and ultimately results in the animals staying out of the town altogether. Continue reading
