Great Lunch

Some great food and wonderful cuisine. Enjoyed the sea food with very tastefully done garnishing. A nice wine list and great ambience as well.

We last reviewed this restaurant in 2011, and decided that it was time to say that the restaurant is still a shining star. In the interim there has been a chef change, which can be traumatic for some restaurants, but in this case La Cape never missed a beat. One has to consider himself or herself truly blessed when a...

We went here for dinner and ordered the surprise menu. The degustation is well priced at 60 Euro and consists of 5 dishes. Each dish looked great using pastel colours with spots of faded greens, yellows and tans. The flavours were good and well known. Each dish was well seasoned and the proteins and legumes were all well cooked perfectly.... More

We arrived with barely a min to spare for our 1:30pm reservation. The restaurant was located in a house in the suburbs, and typical of the starred Michelin setup. My appetizer and entree consisted of a courgette salad with lamb chops, while my wife had the codfish. All of the dishes were well executed, so we couldn't ask for anything... More

We had a wonderful meal in this restaurant on a Friday evening. Everything was beautifully presented and each course had an unusal association of flavours and was absolutely delicious. The service was very good and the wine waiter took us on a wine voyage around Europe. The restaurant was full but the tables are comfortably apart so your neighbours are... More

We were surprised by the fact so many people could be seated in this restaurant upon taking our seats. The day we dined at the restaurant it was quite a warm day and after more people got seated in the restaurant you could feel the temperature rise in the dining room. Although I had asked if one of doors leading... More

Ate here for lunch, and most courses of the menu were excellent. The risotto was a bit salty, but generally great. The wine menu was a disappointment, I think it's been said before. No half bottles, and all quite pricey. The bottle we eventually settled on was quite unremarkable, wouldn't have expected such a poor wine to be on the... More

This is a truly excellent place to dine, for which their Michelin star is well deserved. Attention to detail and presentation is one thing but the flavours and combinations were just wonderful. Great value for money at around £60 odd per head including a memorable chocolaty Languedoc wine. Book well ahead to avoid disappointment.

We used to love La Cap before their Michelin star, but the last few times we came they had started to take themselves too seriously, and had become a bit too precious after their elevation so had not come for quite some time, preferring Le Gabriel in the Bourse. This time the food and service were both excellent, friendly and... More

Surprising location in the middle of a off city suburb . The rest is set in a simple villa + garden .Very inventive and well dressed cuisine . With the success the price went up but this is normal .
