THE ANNEX STORY
Drawing on the heritage of the 103-year-old buildings, the visual experience of the restaurant is as much a draw card as the food.The restaurant is housed in the Annex (Annexure) of an historic building previously known as the Majestic Hotel. The hotel was designed in 1916 and was complete by the mid-1920s. In the early 21st century it was re-developed into The Majestic Village, a sectional title Residential complex. The old Majestic hotel was a sister hotel to the well-known Mount Nelson Hotel still situated in Cape Town central. On extremely hot days in the time before the advent of air conditioning patrons of The Mount Nelson would be relocated by the train to the majestic for their comfort.
The Annex originally known as “Die Klipkantientjie” was built in 1913, this building served as the saloon and public bar. The external facade has ever so slightly changed since its original design in 1913. The Annex is a graceful and peaceful escape from the bustle of Main Road.
The Annex restaurant opened their doors in 2010, and has been lighting up Kalk Bay with its harbour views and great food.
The Annex Main dining area, with its cosy fireplace, is perfect for indoor dining. Guests can also enjoy relaxed meals on The Annex Veranda, at a table in The Annex Courtyard, and the fantastic harbour view from under the tree shady on The Annex Terrace.
