Three of us ate there on a Thursday night in June. We were astounded at how busy the restaurant was. Although the decor and ambience is really appealing, I will not eat there again. For the handsome price of about R900.00, we were not terribly impressed with the food. My partner had baby Kingklip which was a bit dry. The... More

Took my nephew and niece for a meal on my recent trip to South Africa. What a great restaurant. Food, service and atmosphere excellent. I had the Pigalle Platter - wonderful and compared to UK prices a bargain!

We had a nice dining experience at Pigalle Bedfordview. We ordered beef steaks and Salmon at our table. Salmon was particularly a winner.

Always try to ask for a table near the window, best seats in the restaurant. It was a wonderful evening where I strongly recommend the duck with grand mariner, alternatively the strawberry duck would be an excellent alternative if you are a duck lover. If you are a shellfish lover, definitely try the baby lobster. The waiter was told by... More

Went with my wife. Fantastic ambiance and style. We had the seafood platter for 2, a real feast of the ocean. Prawns, langoustines, lobster and calamari, all grilled to perfection with a lively peri peri sauce. Service was first class. Dessert of the mille feuilles was scrumptious. I will be returning soon..

Ate here with some business colleagues on Tuesday evening. The menu is very comprehensive but the portions are enormous so ask before ordering if you don't have a large appetite. Service is good, food and wine excellent.

Excellent, as always. One of my favorite restaurants, ideal for ANY special occasion or dining clients. Ambience, great dishes, perfect service, always a winner. Management checks on each individual meal to ensure the dining experience meets the bar. Our waitress, Belinda, was probably the best waitress we've ever had - professional, funny, knowledgeable, and catered to our every need.

I have now had a meal at every Pigalle restaurant in South Africa. Food quality excellent. No reason for this branch not to get 5 stars. Service levels did not match to the usual Pigalle standards that I am familiar with. Table not cleaned whilst eating. Bread crumbs left on table. Always looking for waitress and, the place was not...
