The food was fresh, innovative, and beautifully presented with interesting combinations of flavors. Like us, most people were getting the set menu of eight tapas dishes designed for two to share. At 700 ZAR, this is not a cheap meal, but justified by the quality...More

This is a commercial experience in amongst fine dining prices. The tapas are tasty and you will be full by the end and you would have had dishes that you will want to taste again. This is good for a romantic milestone. Not a good...More

We had a reduced menu lunch, only 4 of the 8 proposed "tapas". Excellent taste, nice presentation, a real culinary delight. All 4 dishes had an amazing taste! The place looks a bit cold with those kitchen- like steel tables and the toilet is definitely...More

This restaurant has a lot to offer on the menu. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and served us dishes that would suite our pallete. They are vegan friendly and very accommodating. The service was good and the place was busy as we went late evening...More

My husband and I recently tried Chef's Warehouse when we were in Cape Town. I read other reviews that said we should be there right when it opens, so we were there at about 4:45 and we were the first ones there. We did go...More

Chefs Warehouse is still my favourite restaurant in SA. After a series of not so pleasant dining experiences in the last two nights in Cape Town, it’s nice to be pampered with these beautiful dishes. It’s a simple 7-dish tapas concept, unpretentious good service. The...More

My husband and I ate at the Chef's Warehouse on our last evening in Cape Town. After a safari where we'd been very well fed for 2 weeks, and 3 previous dinners in Cape Town, all of which were wonderful, we were a bit jaded,...More

I really loved having lunch at the Chefs Warehouse. The dishes were delicious and had a very pretty presentation. It was really worth it!

This was one of my favorite meals of all time. Great setting and the service was perfect. Our waiter picked the perfect wines for the meal with my favorite bite being the risotto. Beautiful spot in Cape Town.

Admittedly somewhat late to the "Chef's Warehouse" party, as people have been raving about from way back in 2014 when it opened in Bree Street. Somehow, after first being turned away with no chance of a table at this small restaurant that doesn't take reservations,...More
