Paranga has an eclectic menu, indoor and outdoor seating, blankets if you want to be close to the ocean but it's a bit chilly. The fish is good, the meat is good, the salads are good.

Amazing service from Rufus. Great location to eat some good food and enjoy the scenery - nice to have a server who actually cares about his customers

The crayfish salad from the specials of the day was fantastic, as were the thai style mussels. Go for a fillet, even as a burger it is prepared as you wish and of excellent quality. Very friendly and helpful staff, merci Jacques that we could speak a little french in SA.

It was mid-afternoon on a Sunday, with a gentle breeze and sunny sky's. We sat at a pavement table waiting for service. It didnt come. We only wanted a hot coffee. When we were served the Americano's were ice cold. I find a lot of restaurant staff in Cape Town are like the Springbok rugby players. They start to wilt... More

if you're going to Camps Bay this summer, you have to visit Paranga - for a scrumptious lunch or just the most amazing icy cold cocktails. Sit back in their plush chairs, with a Cosmo or Mojito in hand, and feel every muscle in your body relax as you stare out over the gorgeous Camp's Bay beach. It's hip, it's... More

Actually, my wife and I ate there late on an overcast, rainy Monday night after about 48 hours of travel from Minneapolis to Cape Town (including a 15 hour layover in Dubai), so we couldn't see the beach or ocean, but the food and service at that little-trafficked hour were terrific, and even the recorded light-jazz world music in the...

Great little seafront restaurant in Camps Bay. A local recommended that we visit this restaurant if we liked seafood and a romantic ambience. We were not disappointed! As the front of the restaurant is open and facing the ocean, there are overhead outdoor heaters to keep warm and each chair comes with a cosy red blanket for guest to use,... More

Enjoyed a very nice late lunch of mussels, fried goat cheese, & sushi while looking out at the beautiful ocean view. Service was excellent, attentive without any rush. Wine selections reasonably priced.

Loved the setting right near the beak. The waitress was very friendly, perhaps a little too much so as she came over several times and perhaps stayed chatting for a little too long - but it was lovely and she was very attentive. T-bone steak was superb. Chocolate box wine washed it down nicely. Definately one of the better resturants... More
