Nice food, good service, but not cheap!

The food was good. My cocktail (margarita) was very good. Service was good too. It's on the pricey side by CT standards, probably because of location. Price is the only downer. If you have dollars, euros or pounds it will not be expensive.

On Easter Monday my husband and I visited Paranga for breakfast. The food was good, but it took forever to arrive. Even asking for a glass of water was a problem!!! The waiter and manager seemed to be half asleep or badly trained...whichever. We were given two bills...neither of which were ours...eventually the correct bill arrived. Great venue, good food...

Had our last night's meal at Paranga and we weren't disappointed. Although they had run out of certain foods over the Easter weekend, the choice was still very good and Michelle gave good descriptions of the specials. Fillet steak with King Prawns was a favourite and the fillet steak was so tender. No rush, slightly more expensive than some other... More

Paranga still seems to be the place to be seen. Not sure the food is as good as it was. Not particularly bad, just average. Eat at 6 and watch the sun go down makes a pleasant evening

Nice place with a good relaxed atmosphere. Good music. Amazing steak! Starters were so so...nothing incredible. Good selection of mixed types of food including good sushi. Nice restaurant but overpriced.

This was the restaurant that we chose for our first lunch in Camps Bay and it did not disappoint. The crayfish was and still is the best that I have ever had. It was mixed with Cajun mayonnaise and was simply spectacular. The wine was fabulous, especially the Warwick! We ate there a number of times and had our last... More

I was introduced to Paranga by a cousin visiting Cape Town in November 2014. The service was impeccable and the food - both main course and dessert formed part of what I consider to be the best culinary experience I have had in long time. The steak was perfectly cooked and the apple crumble was freshly decadent. The ambiance, comfortable... More
