The Twankey Seafood, Champagne, Guinness and Oyster Bar

When the Board of Executors decided to erect a statue to reflect their benevolence they chose the corner of Adderley and Wale Streets, knowing it was an exceptional location.Today the restored statue still dominates the busy corner, looking up Government Avenue. She’s also given her name, or at least the moniker that Capetonians cheekily bestowed on her nearly 100 years ago, to the champagne and seafood bar below her.


The Twankey celebrates this historic irreverence. A relaxed, sophisticated meeting place, it serves hot and cold seafood in tapas portions from an open kitchen. The food is fresh, light and healthy. The wine list includes an interesting selection of Cape wines and signature cocktails and at the bar there’s draught Guinness on tap. The Twankey also incorporates a coffee bar and will regularly feature live evening entertainment.

To celebrate the lifelong partnership between oysters and Sauvignon Blanc, the Twankey is delighted to offer subscribers of the Warwick Newsletter, 6 complimentary oysters with every bottle of Professor Black Sauvignon Blanc. To enjoy this offer, simply join us at the Twankey at the Taj Cape Town on the corner of wale and Adderley Street, any time in June and July, and inform your waiter that Professor Black has sent you!

This offer is valid for all subscribers of the Warwick newsletter and is valid for June and July 2010. For further details, please visit or have a conversation with us on our blog at
