We really love a good Sunday lunch spot. Something about visiting a pretty venue and spending the afternoon sipping on wine and eating delicious food just works for us. Add a beautiful view, good company and friendly service and we’re at our happiest. A recent Sunday lunch was spent at the very popular Balducci’s at the V & A Waterfront and it did not disappoint.

Firstly, I don’t think I’ve ever walked past Balducci’s when it is not heaving with activity. It is always busy which means they’re obviously doing something right. The atmosphere is chic and comfortable which is something I really enjoy. I love a modern, sophisticated setting that I can feel relaxed in. Balducci’s is unpretentious and casual with a good mix of locals and tourists strolling in and out throughout the day and night.

Food wise, they have an extensive menu offering everything from starters to salads, Asian noodles and tapas, burgers, pizzas, steaks, pastas, sushi and more. Most people would love all this variety but I am the worst when it comes to narrowing things down. I’m not even joking when I say it took me about 30 minutes to decide what to order.

For starters we ordered the blue cheese & avo salad with fresh pear, walnuts and mixed baby salad leaves tossed in olive oil (R119). Hands down one of the best salads we’ve eaten. It was fresh and packed with beautiful textures and flavour. Balducci’s philosophy is all about serving up good quality food that is simple, fresh and filled with passion and style and they did exactly that with this salad.

For mains we ordered the rib delight pizza with BBQ pork rib meat, mushroom and onion (R139) and the 350g Sirloin steak with chips (R179). Both dishes were good and while we couldn’t really fault either, they didn’t live up to the wow-factor-salad.

All in all, Balducci’s is a lovely spot that we will definitely lunch at again. Food, vibe and service were great and they have some incredible specials running until the 1st of December 2016. We look forward to our next visit.
