Sorry to say that this restaurant has delusions of grandeur.. A gay place? who knows it is quite fascinating to figure out who is who may be.. but whatever the sexuality of the place its service is great and its food left a bit to be desired! I was more intrigued by the gay issue than by the food not... More

Visited Palanga with 5 family and friends. View from table to Camps Bay beach was excellent. Restaurant specialised in seafood and suffice it to say that what we were served was excellent. Good wine list but perhaps a bit short on Pinot Gris, although the Chenin Blanc we selected was very well suited to the fish and prawns. Service was... More

Paranga has become a solid part of any trip my wife and I take to Cape Town, and we make sure to stop by to have the incredible Goat Cheese Balls every time! The location is right across from the main beach in town and has wonderful outdoor seating allowing you to take in the sights and sounds of the... More

We ate here a couple of times for lunch - sushi is very good, as are the cocktails. I had the salmon salad which was good but would be better if iceberg lettuce is dropped altogether. Atmosphere is chilled, comfortable, good music and great service. Champagne is not too overpriced and we enjoyed every meal here - fab place to... More

Three words: Beach,Cocktails ,Good Company...ok that's 4! Got to Paranga and though quite busy, we were seated quite quickly. The views are amazing and music was really cool. Waiter got to us quickly and we just had drinks and stayed almost two hours enjoying the atmosphere and company. Great place to hang out in one of the most beautiful Beach... More

We thought we we were lucky to get into this restaurant, but the food was just ordinary not special for a restaurant always as busy, we were very disappointed with camps bay and all the restaurants, just because the place is always busy doesn't mean the standards Are good quite the opposite in camps bay

Waiters misinterpreting selections for more expensive options. Witnessed 2/3 similar exchanges at adjacent tables- Not a coincidence I imagine. Food was good but expensive

We made a reservation on a Saturday evening for a birthday. The 9 of us arrived and were told that the power was off until about 8:30 - so our only option for food was sushi and cocktails. Unfortunately the BIRTHDAY girl does not eat sushi so she was alright with just having cocktails. We were taken to our table... More

Saw the good reviews, so thought we would give this restaurant a visit & by chance it was right next to our hotel. Turned out to be a great choice so much so that we went back the next night.

Taking our usual Monday off, we visited for a breakfast. Our waiter, very politely brought our coffee TO ORDER! Fantastic coffee to start our Breakfast, followed by the most amazing omelette ever, made with smoked mozarella, Rosemary and tomatoes, cooked perfectly! Top marks from fantastic coffee, cutlery, crockery and tastey breakfast. We will definitely revisit here again soon.
