Situated very central in Long Street, possibility to sit out on the terrace in the first floor (very nice!), very friendly staff and finally the most important thing: very good tapas! Had only the lunch special, but that is enough to promise to come back again for more...

A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I made reservations at Fork. My girlfriend actually went into the restaurant earlier in the day and spoke with one of the managers. They said they would reserve a table for two upstairs at 8pm. As it turns out, we were running late to dinner that evening. My girlfriend called Fork to let... More

I was waiting for your 1 out of 5 review and here it is. I normally don’t reply to these ridiculous accusations but as it is personal, I take big offence to it. You don’t know me and to accuse me of something as strong as what you have, just shows me what kind of a man you are. When... More

Went here at recommendation of our hotel (Three Boutique) and we were not disappointed. Every dish ordered was delicious, piping hot and very quickly prepared. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment. Try goats cheese, sweet potatoes, tiger prawns in pancetta, tuna croquettes and more all wonderful, couldn't fault a single dish and we had lots!!

Fork offers sets of small "hors d'oeuvres" or "tapas". Don't expect a full dinner plate (which may be available), but the tapas are tasty, elegantly presented and served fairly promptly. If you get there before 6 pm, try the "lunch" special of five different items plus a glass of wine and coffee for a modest price. After 7 pm the... More

Nice tapas dinner, ideal for four people as you get about four bites per tapas, do not hesitate to order at least 3 for each.the desert tapas also are less interesting. service fine and good wine list

Rather than going out for the typical dinner, it was fun to be able to sample of number of tapas and feel equally satisifed. Fork is a small, two-story restaurant on Long Street that is quaint and intimate especially if you sit upstairs. Upon being seated, the waiter was so patient and explained numerous items on the menu. During dinner,... More

Loved this restaurant, picked it as it was very close to our hotel, we were lucky to get in as it was very busy, we got a table on the terrace which was lovely. The food was excellent could not fault any of it and the staff were extremely helpful and attentive. If you like Tapas this is a good... More

Just incredible meal. The goat cheese with honey was on point! I also loved the chicken dish and had a great bottle of wine. Think we will be back even though we only have a few days in town... it was that good! Only point of improvement was waitress was friendly but not very helpful in distinguishing between wine. But...

We picked this restaurant for its location on Long Street as we heard that it was the place to be on a Saturday night. Not sure if you can wander about there after dinner though. Food was good. Our appetizers were better than our meals. We loved the ravioli, goat cheese and salmon appetizers. We got the ostrich, kudu and... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and it was just down the street. I love Tapas so had to give it a try. Overall pretty good, but portions were not very large. Not bad but not memorable.

Thank rfreder
