Born circa 1988, before the opening of the V&A Waterfront, Panama Jacks evolved from a boatyard servicing the Royal Cape Yacht Club to a quality Seafood Restaurant known all over the world. Situated near the V&A Waterfront Silo District in the Cruise Terminal, Panama Jacks is unique in its setting with all the hustle and bustle of a commercial port going about its daily business.

Panama Jacks has been closed due to the national lockdown effecting South Africa since the end of March. There is currently some major construction around us which effects our parking and entrance. We are unable to give you a reopening date just yet, but watch this space. To all our loyal customers…… be safe, take care and we will see you all very soon.

Take off your jacket, loosen your tie and let us do the rest!

Notes from our Customers

  • As usual, the service was wonderful and prompt. The wine list is still a great selection and I was excited to enjoy a craft beer on tap before my meal as well!

    Thanks again for another great evening. See you again soon!


  • Thank you for another fabulous meal! We have been eating at Panama Jacks restaurant for years and have enjoyed every bite. We loved the atmosphere of the old place, but appreciate how Panama Jacks have faithfully recreated a similar vibe
