Launch of Mondiall restaurant at the V&A Waterfront

Mondiall’s entrance
It has a good deck for sitting outside
The bar, with mojitos and other cocktails lined up
Lots of space on the large covered veranda with doors that open up onto the deck in front 
and to the terrace facing the bay
Double volumes and industrial decor, and a balcony area on the right
above the semi-open kitchen
View of the wine bar from the balcony above
Chef Oliver Cattermole
Canap├ęs came fast and furious. 
These were crayfish Vietnamese rolls
Moroccan chickpeas on chiabata
Josh Roland helping to feed the guests
A good jazz and bongo band
Organised activity, with the chef directing in the sparkling kitchen
The sommelier does not have to climb that high,
these empty bottles are for display
Good design can be a mix of modern and traditional
A wall of back lit wine bottles is part of the design
