Attention to detail is great here

We dined at Paranga after being given a Gift Voucher - our table was exactly what I asked for - in the front, with a great view across Camps Bay where we sat and watched the sun go down. After cocktails, we launched ourselves into the menu. I had previously read some reviews, so was expecting a mix... read more

After an evening of Whiskey tasting as the Bascule Bar - we came here for dinner. The food was wonderful! I had the Chicken Schnitzel which was so pleasant. My Husband had a seafood dish that he loved as well! The waiter was very kind to us and made sure we had everything we needed.

Good food and service. Conveniently located and nice to walk the sidewalks before dinner and have a relaxing meal.

Meal was well presented, but not cheap. I was fortunate enough to be invited along with some international guests that were eager to try out this restaurant. Food was okay but don't expect to be satisfied as the meals are very small and you end up leaving broke and hungry.

Best meal by far, in our 10 days stay in Cape Town. The sea food platter for two was superb and whilst we thought that we would never finish it, we ate every single morsel on the plate! Lovely ambience, looking straight onto Camps Bay beach on the main road, with a vibey type of atmosphere inside restaurant and on... More

I had my first experience of suishi in Paranga and it was soooo good! What an introduction!! We also ate steak and had a crayfish salad. The fillet was big and cooked to perfection. The salad was very filling and everything tasted delicious. We had a cocktail each and the value (especially compared to UK prices) was excellent.

My late lunch here turned into my only meal for the day because of the large fish I was served. A baby kinglip turned out to be an excellent dish and a whole fish! The food was good, service fair. I skipped a desert with my coffee, because I just didn't want to wait. This is sad for me, because... More

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...

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.
