We were craving bagels while in Cape Town and saw a review on-line of Tasca that said they had bagels. We were very excited, therefore, to try it. Turns out not only do they NOT have bagels, the waitstaff did not even know what we meant! However, the breakfast menu was interesting and the food was good. This restaurant inside... More

Great menu offering some unique Portuguese dishes. The food and beverage prices are ridiculously expensive and the service is a bit slow. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant for a family lunch with kids, rather for special occasions.

The restaurant location is perfect. Although the food is good, it is not excellent and it is a little over priced. The service is also good.

The food was okay but ridiculously over-priced. (R100 for a bowl of lettuce leaves with a few bits in it!). Our meal did not all arrive at once and items were forgotten. Prices are insane - many other local eateries are serving food that's twice as good at half the price. Service was poor- waiter thought he was a comedian... More

This restaurant offers plenty of choice in a central location on the V&A Waterfront. It is a bit dismal inside, some might call it atmospheric. The service was reasonably good and the food was not bad either and it was plentiful. The cost was reasonable too. Overall not disappointed but there is plenty of choices as regards where to eat...

The V and A Waterfront has many restaurants charging the full range of prices. Tasca offers good food, some unusual seafood dishes with a Portuguese flavour, at sensible prices with good well priced wine and good service. Toilets are clean, wait staff well trained and friendly and you will not be alarmed at the prices for the quality of food... More

‘Average’ would best describe this place, meant to cater more to tourists than foodies. Had the chicken livers to start, and that was brilliant! Then a steak, which was uninspiring, did not finish it. Opted for a bean salad on the side, which should have been labelled “Warning – for those with no taste buds”. You simply cannot serve a...

Looking for a light lunch after a boat trip, we stumbled across Tasca. What a pleasure!! Speedy service and a friendly waiter! Wine priced rather well considering a couple of places really over charge on local wines. We found it fair and at the right temperature. We as the Prego rolls as we just wanted a light meal and they... More

When I arrived at the restaurant I was really kindly greeted by the supervisor outside, we had a nice chat, she even acknowledged that I have a Portuguese accent, which shows interest in their clients. I chose the most expensive meal on the menu since I was really craving that special Bacalhau that i couldn't get anywhere else in Cape... More
