Good value for some great food that was presented well and cooked to a high standard. Camps bay is a lively place to spend a night and this is a good place to eat. Staff are friendly and the seating ample. Just avoid the rocky road desert if you are trying to be good. If not just indulge!!!

I loved this bar/restaurant as you can sit here for a couple of hours with a bottle of wine and some tapas food and watch the world go by. It's lovely food, but the service is extremely slow. They are in no rush but don't let you put that off. They did forget to put our lunch order in which... More

Pricey for lunch, bit it's a great meal, great service and great views of the beach. Ask for what's fresh on the menu - not just what's market price. The sesame tuna swaa fresh the day I went and amazing. Also ask about market-price items before you order, or you can easily pay R1000 for a dish.

Went on our last night in Cape Town and had the most amazing and pleasurable experience. The waitress (whose name we did not note (sadly) was very attentive and the food was perfection on a p[late. Go but do book in advance !

Worst restaurant experience I've had in quite a while. Staff is snobbish and rude. Felt completely unwelcome.

This is a very slick, sophisticated place in Camp's Bay. We had a late lunch on two days when it was not terribly crowded. Both times we got the best table in the house -- at the front of the restaurant, but elevated a few steps to afford a great view out to the beach. And they play great music.... More

We visited about 6pm on the 28 December after a long flight from the UK. We were greeted promptly and the staff and server were attentive and friendly. I had the tuna which was coated in sesame seed and cooked to perfection.It was a large portion so make sure you have the appetite to finish it. My friend opted for... More

Had lunch and drinks here on a beautiful sunny day and sat toward the front where we had a nice view. Its a lovely atmosphere with good music. I think sitting in the back where you don't have a view of the outside would be a bit boring, but that's my opinion. There was a bit of an attitude by... More

We always head here when we are on holiday in Cape town, we love the atmosphere. The cocktails food and wine that we had were lovely, but we were a bit shocked at the 1500 rand (£93) price JUST for the fish platter(for two) bearing in mind that we always ate in nice restaurants and the average TOTAL bill was...

We were in Cape Town for four nights last September 2016. We first ate at Paranga on our 3rd night in town and enjoyed it so much, that we booked a table for our last night. We found the service to be great, the choice of meals to be varied and interesting (I tried my first ostrich here - and... More
