We stopped here for a late lunch after visiting Table Mountain. It was an excellent choice as the three of us picked items we liked and shared across. Chorizo and Raclette was a reorder as it was delicious! Good location and atmosphere.

I live in Cape Town and can honestly say that we are spoilt for choice in the number of restaurants of different cuisines available. Out of them all, my personal #1 favourite is Fork! Sublime tapas taken to the next level and well priced for the exceptional quality of food. Fork is right on the vibey Long Street and I... More

I did a lot of research on places to eat before visiting Cape Town and I’m so glad I chose to go here, it was the best meal I had on a 2 week trip to South Africa. We tried about 8 tapas dishes between us and some dessert, everything was delicious and each dish seemed really well thought out.... More

Good food and service. Seared tuna and peanut dessert were amazing. Although the manger could treat the staff nicer. We witness an awkward situation between the lady and few of the guys behind the bar which wasn't comfortable particularly when they were great with us and very quick!

We booked for an early meal to get to the Fugard Theatre for an 8 pm show. We found the service to be prompt and friendly. My wife is garlic intolerant (which can severely limit her options) so when we got the menu we enquired about what she could eat. We were promptly given a specific menu for garlic intolerant...

Highly recommend Fork, fast efficient service and a delicious range of tapas. I was glad I stopped in, only sorry I didn't have room to try more dishes.

The fork restaurant is a real gem, and a great place to eat. The menu consists of tapas, or pinchos, at varios price points, each one has about 5 selections on it, but you only need to choose 2, so there is something for everyone. The food was excellent, and you just keep picking of the menu as you please,... More
